AirAsia Thailand commences its first international route from Suvarnabhumi Airport today, becoming the only low-cost carrier to fly between Suvarnabhumi and Kuala Lumpur.
The route is available twice daily.
AirAsia Thailand’s CEO, Santisuk Klongchaiya, pointed out that AirAsia’s flight base at Suvarnabhumi Airport has been very well received. At present, the carrier operates three domestic routes from Suvarnabhumi, flying to Chiang Mai, Phuket and Krabi.
He said: “Our first international route being served from Suvarnabhumi Airport is a positive and exciting development, especially as it’s the popular Suvarnabhumi-Kuala Lumpur route. On top of Suvarnabhumi Airport being a major transit hub with a variety of further options for flights, arrivals from Kuala Lumpur will also have AirAsia’s extensive network of low fare domestic routes to continue on with. Thailand is welcoming fully vaccinated visitors and no longer requires Covid-19 testing or quarantine, so we are confident this new route will be very well received.”
AirAsia also operates daily return flights between Bangkok Don Mueang and Kuala Lumpur.
