AirAsia’s inaugural flight from Bangkok-Changsha takes off on 24 January 2014. To celebrate Thai AirAsia’s 9th destination from Thailand to China, the airline is offering an amazing promotion of 20% off all seats, available for booking today at www.airasia.com.

According to Mr. Tassapon Bijleveld, CEO of Thai AirAsia, “We are confident in the potential of the China market in the long run. Changsha is AirAsia’s 9th destination in China, and today’s inaugural flight had a load factor of over 70%, which is an acceptable number considering Thailand’s current circumstances”.

The CEO admitted that while Chinese travellers may take more time considering visits to the Kingdom, overall the market of visitors from the country has remained strong and Thailand has retained its place among the top destinations for Chinese tourists. He pointed out that on the route’s first flight, 80 percent of passengers were Chinese citizens.69BFE39847AD23A256B77A4E38342AEF1

“Apart from Bangkok, AirAsia has also been promoting other destinations in the Kingdom to Chinese visitors such as Chiang Mai, Phuket and Krabi while also recommending its Fly-Thru service, which allows for quick and convenient connections to even more destinations via Bangkok Don Mueang Airport”, said Mr. Tassapon.

“Changsha” is AirAsia’s newest destination in China from Bangkok. The early morning flight allows travelers to get in a full day of sightseeing right after they land. Film buffs will especially like Changsha’s travel highlight, World Heritage Jang Jia Jie Park, which is the filming location of Hollywood hit Avatar. Adventure seekers will be able to experience a sky-high cable car ride to an otherworldly range of sand stone towers. For travelers who like to drink in the atmosphere and view local cultures, Changsha also has the ancient riverside town of Fenghuang waiting to be explored.

To mark the launch of the “Bangkok-Changsha” route, AirAsia is offering a major promotion that will see all seats on flights discounted by 20 percent when booked at www.airasia.com. Bookings must be made from today until 2 February, 2014 for travel between now and 30 June.
