AirAsia to sell tickets at Tesco

PHUKET CITY: From Phuket to Kuala Lumpur via Tesco-Lotus will become possible from September 28, when Thai AirAsia opens a ticket booth inside the Tesco-Lotus store, off the bypass road.

The low-cost airline started selling tickets through five Tesco-Lotus branches in Bangkok on September 16 and plans to extend its sales network to include Tesco stores in Chiang Mai, Haad Yai and Udon Thani, as well as Phuket, by the end of this month.

AirAsia public relations executive Jacqueline Mercader told the Gazette today, “Most of our customers are similar to the target group of Tesco-Lotus.

“We are two major low-cost businesses. Tesco-Lotus’s concept is ‘everyday low prices’ while Thai AirAsia has a concept of ‘everyday low cost’.”
