AirAsia flies direct from Bangkok to Taipei daily

10 August 2009

AirAsia, the world’s best low-cost airline, is expanding its network with a new daily direct service from Bangkok to Taipei starting on Sept. 25, 2009.

The latest network expansion reinstates the airline’s commitment to foster economic growth and stimulate tourism in the region.

To celebrate the new service, AirAsia will be offering an all-in-fare from as low as NT$690 one-way between Taipei and Bangkok which will be exclusively available online via AirAsia’s website at www.airasia.com.

The ultra low fares are offered for the Booking period from August 6-11, 2009 for travel from September 25, 2009 to January 9, 2010.

AirAsia Regional Head of Commercial, Kathleen Tan said: “We are very thrilled with the announcement of Thai AirAsia’s launch of Bangkok-Taipei route. The announcement could not have come at a better timing with AirAsia heading towards peak season travel."

Tan is confident that with Air-Asia’s direct connection serving Taipei would stimulate new travel demands and further tap new markets, especially the young working adults and families to Thailand where this vibrant country has much to offer holiday goers.

Thailand is a highly popular holiday destination among Taiwanese who has strong appetite to travel. Last year, over half a million visitors visited Thailand.
