Air Asia has announced that it has introduced a sixth daily frequency on its service from Bangkok to Singapore – one of the airline's secondary hubs. The low-cost carrier flies the route directly from Terminal 1 at Changi to Don Mueang Airport in Bangkok.
Currently, Air Asia is the only airline to land at Don Mueang Airport from Singapore. Don Mueang is smaller and less congested than the primary Suvarnabhumi Airport, which allows for faster immigration clearance times. It is also closer to Bangkok city, reducing travelling time for passengers.
To commemorate the increase in flights to Bangkok, Air Asia is launching a promotion. From now until July 21, travellers can fly from Singapore to Bangkok for an all-in-fare of S$70 (US$55) between August 7 and December 31.
Air Asia also flies to Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Siem Reap, Hat Yai, Krabi, Trang, and Surat Thani in Thailand – all via Bangkok.
This follows news that the carrier is also launching direct flights to Medan and Surubaya in Indonesia – one of Asia's fastest emerging economies that is attracting increased business travel (for an in-depth report, click here). With the new routes, Air Asia will fly direct from Singapore to 17 locations.
