AirAsia flies you from the stylish coastal town Hua Hin to Malaysia’s diverse capital city, Kuala Lumpur with four times weekly direct flights starting 18 May 2018.
To commemorate the announcement of the new route, AirAsia is offering promotional all-in-fares from THB 990* one way onairasia.com and on AirAsia’s mobile app from now to 4 March 2018 for travel period between 18 May 2018 and 26 October 2018.
As a truly Asean airline, the latest route to Hua Hin marks AirAsia Malaysia’s (flight code AK) seventh destination that connects Malaysia and Thailand, consistent with the airline’s continuous efforts to provide the widest network in Asean and connecting the road less travelled in the region to the world.
Spencer Lee, Head of Commercial, AirAsia Malaysia said, “We are thrilled to introduce Kuala Lumpur-Hua Hin route as the latest addition to our ever-growing network. Since launching Phuket in 2003 as our first international route from Kuala Lumpur, we currently have flights to seven cities in Thailand. In 2017 alone, we carried about 1.3 million of guests from Kuala Lumpur to Thailand. Moreover, Thailand was ranked ninth among the world’s most visited countries by the United Nation’s World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) report published in 2017. Hence, we are positive that Hua Hin will be the new preferred holiday destination and hope that the new route will further contribute to the tourism growth for both cities.”
AirAsia Malaysia currently operates 165 weekly flights to Thailand. Besides Hua Hin, the airline also flies to six other routes to Thailand such as Bangkok (80 times weekly), Phuket (35 times weekly), Krabi (21 times weekly), Hat Yai (7 times weekly), Chiang Mai (14 times weekly), and Pattaya (4 times weekly).
Kuala Lumpur is the perfect representation of the harmoniously multi-racial Malaysia. From its humble beginnings of a tin mining city, the ‘muddy confluence’ has progressively transformed into one of the most developed capital cities of Southeast Asia. Kuala Lumpur’s world-famous landmark, the Petronas Twin Towers (KLCC), and the surrounding attractions that host cultural elements from the various ethnicities represented in Malaysia are some must-visit sites when visiting the capital city. Places to visit such as the 421m tall KL Tower, Central Market (Pasar Seni), Petaling Street, KLCC, Malaysia Tourism Centre and Bukit Bintang are all accessible from the free GoKL bus. A day trip to visit other nearby attractions such as Port Dickson, Genting Highlands, Cameron Highlands, Bukit Tinggi, Putrajaya, Batu Caves, and Sunway Lagoon are also ideal from the city centre.
Visitors who wish to explore more of Malaysia can also take advantage of AirAsia’s domestic network to the idyllic resort island Langkawi; or fly further to the tip of Borneo Island Kota Kinabalu to marvel at Southeast Asia’s highest peak Mount Kinabalu, discover the mysterious Mulu Caves as well as dive into the world famous underwater world at Sipadan Island.
