AirAsia is adding an exciting new experience for travellers by flying from Chiang Mai to Yangon three times a week from August, serving the route with its large aircraft and on-time service, the carrier announced on Monday.



Promotional fares of just Bt990 per trip can now be booked until June 24 for travel on the inaugural flight this coming August 11, through August 12 next year. 

AirAsia’s aim is to attract new tourists to boost Chiang Mai’s travel scene as well as to give Chiang Mai residents the opportunity to experience Yangon’s spirituality, the Shwedagon Pagoda and its British colonial charms, said Santisuk Klongchaiya, chief executive officer of Thai AirAsia.

Flights to and from the former Myanmar capital will be on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
