Mr. Santisuk Klongchaiya, Director of Commercial for Thai AirAsia, flew on the inaugural flight of FD 636 from Bangkok to Da Nang to take part in the press conference today (9 June 2017).  He stated Thai AirAsia is very happy to be connecting Da Nang to Bangkok and has been well received by the people of Da Nang.  The route is Thai AirAsia’s first time introducing a third destination within one country and means it now serves flights to the north, central and southern regions of Vietnam, allowing it to help stimulate travel and investment.

“To inaugurate the Da Nang-Bangkok route, we are offering a promotional fare starting at only 1,090 THB* per trip available today to 18 June 2017 for travel from 9 June 2017 to 14 January 2018  via all ticketing channels and www.airasia.com  We believe the route will be to the liking of both Vietnamese and Thai travellers as it offers great savings in both time and cost and we will be promoting it heavily to both Thai and international travellers so that they may visit Vietnam for tourism and investment.  We are proud to be able to play a role in supporting the economy and tourism of both countries”.

Information from the Da Nang Department of Tourism indicates Thailand has been among the top international tourist markets for Da Nang in recent years with more than 24,300 tourists from Thailand visiting the city in 2016. With Bangkok being one of Southeast Asia’s major trade and tourism centers and the hub of a wide international network, the opening of the Bangkok-Da Nang route helps connect Da Nang tourism to a global market and should allow tourists, especially from Western European countries such as England, France, Germany, Spain, and Italy who have been visa-free since 1 July 2015, to reach Da Nang easier via Bangkok. At the same time, the new route offers greater convenience for Da Nang residents to experience tourism in Thailand or seek investment opportunities.

AirAsia travellers from Danang can enjoy its Fly Thru service at Don Mueang Airport which allows them to easily continue onward to destinations both domestic and international, across ASEAN and Asia.  At present, AirAsia boasts the most routes in ASEAN with Thai AirAsia(Code FD) flying from Thailand to 13 destinations in 7 ASEAN countries, offering a total of 17 routes.

AirAsia currently serves direct flights from Vietnam to Bangkok (Don Mueang Airport) on 2 routes, Hanoi-Bangkok 2 flights a day and Ho Chi Minh-Bangkok 3 flights a day.  The airline also offers direct flights from Da Nang to Kuala Lumpur (AirAsia Malaysia code AK) with the route recently increasing its frequency from 4 flights weekly to daily in December 2016 and 10 flights weekly since 6th June 2017.  All the routes underline Vietnam’s support for AirAsia, especially considering their average Load Factors of 80-85%.

By introducing Da Nang-Bangkok, AirAsia is strengthening its flight network for both Vietnamese and Thai citizens while adhering to its“Truly Low Fares… Trusted Quality” motto by promising low fares, on-time flights, close care for safety and an expansive network of destinations.
