Following the much-celebrated resumption of flights to Phuket from Kuala Lumpur last week, AirAsia is announcing more good news as the inaugural flight to Bangkok took off, with many exciting promotions and deals awaiting guests travelling to Thailand.
The inaugural service on an Airbus A320 aircraft departed Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (klia2) with a 65% flight load. Guests onboard AK0882, the first of two scheduled weekly flights from Kuala Lumpur to Bangkok, were sent-off by Mai Yin Tan, Airasia’s Regional Commercial Head.
Riad Asmat, AirAsia Malaysia CEO said: “AirAsia would like to thank and congratulate the Thai government, first of all, for allowing fully-vaccinated travellers from Malaysia to visit the country. Encouraged by the robust demand for flights to Phuket and Bangkok, we look forward to mounting more flights to Thailand soon. As border restrictions are lifted, AirAsia wishes to assure its guests of the stringent health and safety protocols enforced on all of our flights with our highly trained and fully vaccinated crew continuing to deliver the world’s best service during the pandemic. We have prepared extensively to ensure all of our guests could travel safely and seamlessly with peace of mind.”
Fully vaccinated travellers from Malaysia who wish to travel to Thailand must meet the requirements set by the Thai Government prior to purchasing their flights and upon arrival.
Guests can book one-way flights to both Bangkok from RM199 and Phuket from just RM50 for travel from now until 30 March 2022 through the ‘Flights’ icon on the airasia Super App now.
