HAT YAI, 29 January 2016: Thai AirAsia will add a flight on its Hat Yai-Chiang Mai route to give passengers the option of two flights daily starting 1 April.
The additional flight aims to serve growing travel demand between north and south destinations in Thailand.
It is a response to customer demand that called for more direct flights between northern and southern destinations to avoid the inconvenience travelling via Bangkok.
Direct flight cut travelling and airport transfer time in Bangkok and significantly reduce the overall cost of air travel.
It also supports the government’s policy to encourage domestic travel across the country, between provinces, rather than focusing on just Bangkok residents’ travel needs.
The airline offers a lowest one-way fare, inclusive of airport tax and fee, from Hat Yai to Chiang Mai at THB3,571. In comparison, Nok Air sells an inclusive one-way fare on the route at THB2,743.
