He elaborated that the airline has focused on flying to centers of business and travel, of which Kunming is both. The city becomes Thai AirAsia’s 8th destination in China.

“Thai AirAsia currently operates up to 119 flights to China a week on 10 different routes. Annually, our flights to China average a passenger load of 85%. It’s a matter of pride for us that we have been able to facilitate the travel of so many Thais to China and to offer them such low fares so they may have more money to spend during their trip”.
