AirAsia resumes direct flights from Kuala Lumpur to Thailand’s Pattaya, offering increased accessibility and boosting tourism for the popular seaside destination.

SEPANG, MALAYSIA – AirAsia Malaysia (flight code AK) has announced the resumption of services from Kuala Lumpur to Pattaya, Thailand with thrice-weekly flights commencing 17 June 2024.

The reinstatement of the route to Pattaya marks the airline’s ninth direct route to Thailand from Kuala Lumpur, Johor Bahru and Penang post-pandemic, after Bangkok (Don Mueang International Airport), Bangkok (Suvarnabhumi Airport), Krabi, Chiang Mai, Phuket and Hatyai. It also comes hot on the heels of the recent AirAsia’s ‘Takeover Thailand’ campaign launch aimed at highlighting the ‘Land of Smiles’ as the preferred travel destination for travellers from Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and beyond.

As the eighth largest city in Thailand, Pattaya has always been a highly sought-after tourism destination for both domestic and international travellers. From the pristine shores of Koh Larn to the bustling Pattaya Floating Market, there is something for everyone to explore in this seaside town. In 2019, AirAsia flew over 60,000 travellers between Kuala Lumpur and Pattaya.

Group CEO of AirAsia Aviation Group, Bo Lingam said: “We are pleased to announce the resumption of services to the East Coast of the Gulf of Thailand, providing the only direct connectivity from Kuala Lumpur to the city. This addition to our vast network in Thailand underscores our continued commitment to making travel more accessible to second-tier cities such as Pattaya. With approximately 2.7 million guests flying from Malaysia to Thailand throughout 2023, we firmly believe that the return of this popular route will  boost the number of travellers to and from Thailand this year, further making our ‘Takeover Thailand’ campaign a success.”
