Hua Hin and Khon Kaen, new flight destinations for Air Asia, are looking to get more passenger love with Air Asia announcing proposed expansion of routes to the two destinations.

New routes are being added to and from the Hua Hin airport, adding to the first scheduled flights from KL, Malaysia this month.

The proposed new routes will see regular flights to and from Hua Hin to Chiang Mai and Phuket, in addition to Khon Kaen.

The new routes, which are currently subject to a feasibility study, are expected to be officially announced later this year.

Meanwhile, buoyed by better than expected passenger figures on Khon Kaen routes, Air Asia could soon announce new services out of the north eastern Thai city.

Current routes from Khon Kaen to Don Muang, Hat Yai and Chiang Mai have proved so successful that three more are in the offing.

This could see regular flights from Khon Kaen to and from Hua Hin, U-Tapao (Pattaya) and Chiang Rai officially launched later this year.

Air Asia flights were 89% full on Khon Kaen routes in 2017 and first quarter results from this year are expected to be even better. Some 5,000 passengers per day were using their services from the Khon Kaen hub.

The route to Bangkok has seen 96% capacity and Ai Asia are now thinking of adding a late night return trip to the six already available on that route.

The British Embassy has issued travel advice that applies to all foreigners living in Thailand. The ‘advice’ refers to the escalation of the student and activist anti-government protests. In the past, generally, these situations don’t end well once there is a critical mass and the government, via the Army, decide to step in.But at this stage the tone of both sides has been peaceful. The government are mindful of the impact of the local Covid-19 outbreak, and the lockdowns, and would want to avoid any bad publicity from a student protest crackdown to exacerbate the situation. The Thai PM has, […]
