20 August 2010

AirAsia, the world’s best low-cost airline celebrates its inaugural flight to Hat Yai from Kuala Lumpur signifying AirAsia’s final connection to South Thailand with a 90 percent flight load.

Kathleen Tan, Regional Commercial Head, AirAsia says: “There has been a demand for AirAsia to connect Hat Yai to Kuala Lumpur, and we are excited to fulfill this demand of an unserved market. AirAsia is the only airline to connect Hat Yai direct from Kuala Lumpur with daily flights. This new route was opened for sale recently in June, and the response has been encouraging. With AirAsia’s vast network and excellent connectivity, travelers from Hat Yai can now connect all over the world via AirAsia’s regional hub in Kuala Lumpur to all ASEAN countries, China, India, Australia and Europe with ultra low fares. It will also be more convenient for frequent travelers to Hat Yai to fly instead of driving long hours, which will translate into more time for shopping and sightseeing at Hat Yai.”

“This route adds another significant milestone for us as it is AirAsia’s final connection to South Thailand, which reiterates our commitment to expand the ASEAN market. We recently completed our network to all ASEAN countries from Kuala Lumpur in July with our newly launched Kuala Lumpur to Yangon flight. With this new addition, AirAsia now has a total of 140 flights weekly from Kuala Lumpur to Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Krabi, Phuket and now Hat Yai,” Tan added.

AirAsia’s Thai affiliate, Thai AirAsia also flies to Hat Yai from Bangkok with 4 flights daily.
