Thai AirAsia has announced they will begin Bangkok – Trang flights on January 15, 2012. This new route to the southern province of Trang on the Andaman Sea coast expands Thai AirAsia’s domestic network to 11 destinations within Thailand.
“We opened travel hubs in Phuket and Chiang Mai,” said Santisuk Klongchaiya, the commercial director of Thai AirAsia.
“After the success of connecting Thailand’s northern and southern regions via our main hubs, we are now able to focus on bringing newer routes into the picture to strengthen our existing connectivity.”
There will be one flight per day departing Bangkok at 9.20am and arriving in Trang at 10.40am. The return flight departs Trang at 11.25am and arrives in Bangkok at 12.45pm.
To attract interest for the new route, Thai AirAsia is offering promotional fares for as little as THB690 (USD23) one-way for travel between January 15 and June 30, 2012. This route is already served by competing budget airlines Nok Air and Orient Thai.
