Thai AirAsia boosts flights from Chiang Mai to 6 international destinations

Low-cost carrier Thai AirAsia will soon boost flights daily from Chiang Mai Airport in northern Thailand to six international destinations including Hanoi and Da Nang in Vietnam, Singapore, Hong Kong, Taipei and Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia.

Flights will run to these Asian tourist hotspots every day starting Sunday, March 26, 2023.

The budget airline is celebrating the boost in flights with a Songkran (Thai New Year) promotion for tickets bought via the AirAsia Super App.

If tickets are booked before March 19, budding travellers can bag a flight to Hanoi, Da Nang, Hong Kong, Taipei or Kuala Lumpur for as little as 1800 baht (US$52) during the Songkran holidays next month.
