Indicating strong readiness to attract tourists to its Thai network.
Hong Kong – AirAsia Thailand (flight code FD) is launching direct flights to China and Hong Kong with close adherence to all travel policies. Hong Kong-Bangkok Don Mueang will begin with a weekly flight starting 7 August before increasing to twice and thrice-weekly in September and October 2022 respectively.
Hong Kong-Bangkok Don Mueang route is now open for sale on AirAsia Super App for travel between 7 August to 8 December 2022, starting from HKD848 (all-in-fare one way) on every Sunday. From Bangkok, travellers can connect to all regions via AirAsia’s expansive domestic network in Thailand, including Phuket, Chiang Mai, Krabi and more.
A pilot roundtrip flight between Guangzhou and Bangkok Don Mueang will also be launched this 13 July with tickets to Thailand available on the AirAsia Super App. The flight is being carried out to demonstrate the carrier’s readiness to serve routes to and from China as soon as the government announces the country’s official reopening.
AirAsia Thailand Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Santisuk Klongchaiya stated: “These two initial routes provide us an opportunity to welcome visitors to Thailand, which is already a very popular destination that many travellers from China and Hong Kong have been highly anticipating for the past two years. With restrictions further relaxed in Thailand, we have been marketing heavily in China and Hong Kong to tap into these tourism markets to sustain strong recovery post-pandemic.”
Tourism Authority of Thailand, Hong Kong Director, Ms. Naparat Vudhivad, said, “We saw substantial growth of visitors as the Hong Kong government gradually adjusted the quarantine boundaries and travel restrictions since April this year. As we unwind from the pandemic, we realize how much enrichment travel can bring to life and how eager people are to look forward to travelling. We go beyond the New Normal with AirAsia to rebuild the confidence, regenerate the enthusiasm, reignite the passion for travelling and reshape the future of travel. Amazing Thailand is waiting for you.”
