KUALA LUMPUR – AirAsia Thailand is launching its first international route from Suvarnabhumi Airport, becoming the only low-cost carrier to connect Suvarnabhumi (BKK) and Kuala Lumpur (KUL), Malaysia and offering more choices for those travelling to and from Bangkok.
AirAsia guests planning their trips to Bangkok from Kuala Lumpur can now choose flights that land at Don Mueang International Airport (DMK) or Suvarnabhumi International Airport (BKK). Likewise, those travelling from Bangkok can choose to depart from either airport which gives them the best convenience.
The Kuala Lumpur – Suvarnabhumi (BKK) route will be available two times daily and is being introduced at a promotional fare for airasia members starting from only RM179 one way. Book promotional seats this 26 – 31 May 2022 and travel between 20 June and 29 October 2022 using the airasia Super App.
Commenting on the introduction of the new Bangkok Suvarnabhumi – Kuala Lumpur route, Santisuk Klongchaiya, Chief Executive Officer of AirAsia Thailand said: “AirAsia’s flight base at Suvarnabhumi Airport has been very well received. At present, the carrier operates three domestic routes from Suvarnabhumi, flying to Chiang Mai, Phuket and Krabi, and from June onwards will be operating our first international route with Suvarnabhumi-Kuala Lumpur. The flight will take travellers to Malaysia’s capital and economic centre, a city rich in commerce and tourism while expanding options for those coming from Kuala Lumpur to land at either Don Mueang Airport (three times daily) or Suvarnabhumi Airport (two times daily). From Kuala Lumpur, travellers can further connect to various destinations in Malaysia as well as across ASEAN.
“Our first international route being served from Suvarnabhumi Airport is a positive and exciting development, especially as it’s the popular Suvarnabhumi-Kuala Lumpur route. On top of Suvarnabhumi Airport being a major transit hub with a variety of further options for flights, arrivals from Kuala Lumpur will also have AirAsia’s extensive network of low fare domestic routes to continue on with. As Thailand is now welcoming fully vaccinated visitors and no longer requires COVID-19 testing or quarantine on arrival, we are confident this new route will be very well received,” Santisuk said.
Fully vaccinated travellers between Thailand and Malaysia are no longer required to present a COVID-19 test result or undergo quarantine on arrival. Thailand is abolishing the Thailand Pass requirement for Thai Nationals to enter the country from 1 June 2022.
