Thai AirAsia CEO Santisuk Klongchaiya said…

“Singapore is a complete tourism destination that has always been popular, with a high load factor average throughout the year.

“The direct Chiang Mai-Singapore route will give people of the north a convenient and affordable way to reach Singapore while Singaporeans can easily head to the unique city. The route will benefit the economies of both locations.”

Thai AirAsia is a subsidiary of Malaysian low-fare airline AirAsia and Thailand’s Asia Aviation. The airline serves AirAsia’s regularly scheduled domestic and international flights from Bangkok and other cities in Thailand.

Four flights per week on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays will use Airbus A320s. The new flights come as the carrier prepares to increase traffic through Chiang Mai.

Thai AirAsia will compete on the route with Scoot, which offers a daily A320 flight. Thai AirAsia’s move will increase weekly capacity to 4,000 seats.
