Thai AirAsia X postpones relaunch

BANGKOK 18 August 2020: Thai AirAsia X has shunted its planned reboot of services scheduled for 1 September to October at the earliest.

The airline filed information on its postponement of services with major booking systems following the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand’s decision to extend the ban on international commercial airlines services to and from Bangkok indefinitely.

According to advance timetable information first reported by Airlineroute, the airline planned the following A330-300 services in September from its base at Bangkok Dom Mueang International Airport:
Fukuoka three weekly;
Osaka Kansai three weekly;
Seoul Incheon three  weekly;
Tokyo Narita three weekly.

Meanwhile, AirAsia based out of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, continues its recovery, adding more flights this month from its home-base to cities in South Asia. It returns to around 80% of its pre-Covid-19 capacity with just a few exceptions such as Thailand where flights have not resumed to Bangkok and Chiang Mai, but flights to other destinations in Asia are looking strong.
