Existing routes also activate high demand as our direct flights from Chennai and Bengaluru maintained a Load Factor Average of 83 per cent in 2016 and our Kochi route was well received as soon as it was introduced in May this year.
Thai AirAsia currently connects Bangkok to three Indian cities: Chennai, five flights a week; Bengaluru, five flights a week; Kochi, seven flights a week.
