This was done in order to formalize and to expand on the company’s researcher’s extensive knowledge of Asia’s ceramic developments and maritime trade.for more than two decades and another decade researching maritime trade.Following a successful shipwreck discovery, the company obtain a government permit to excavate the wreckage, and then carry out detailed marine archaeological procedures in recovering the artifacts, mapping the ship's remains and securing other data for future research.After each concluded project and following conservation of recovered artifacts, we search for and pinpoint ruined kiln sites and compare its wasters with the recovered ceramics until we are satisfied we located the place in which the shipwreck pottery was made centuries earlier.Speaking to Hindustan Times, Air India’s local manager RK Negi said the direct flight to Bangkok from Chandigarh will take approximately five hours.“The inaugural fare for the return journey is Rs 21,500.
