AirAsia launches first Bangkok Sales office
Low cost carrier, AirAsia officially opened the doors of its first Bangkok Sales office on Wednesday.
Located on Khao San Road, the new sales office is aimed at meeting the demands of guests who prefer face-to-face, one-stop service with flexibility in payment methods both in cash and by credit card.
Tassapon Bijleveld, Chief Executive Officer of Thai AirAsia said, “This expansion portrays our confidence in Thailand’s tourism and strong commitment to the Thai market. “We expect to increase the level of our guests’ satisfaction coherently by constantly providing the best products and services. “The opening of this new convenient customer touch point will supplement AirAsia’s highly popular online service at www.airasia.com.
“With our low fares offering, we will continue to expand our service coverage into major cities across Thailand, especially tourist spots as we foresee the upcoming strong demand from these areas.”
At the opening ceremony of the new sales office, AirAsia also held a small handover ceremony of thirty full decorated Padthai carts to street vendors in Banglumpoo area. The ceremony was attended by a number of senior officials from Tourism Authority of Thailand and Khao San Business Association as well as representatives from Phranakorn District Office. This latest initiative is AirAsia’s second sales outlet following the success of its first sales office on Chiang Mai’s Thaphae Road that was opened in June last year. AirAsia sales office at Khao San opens daily from 1100 hrs to 2200 hrs.
