AirAsia has launched from direct flights a week between Chiang Mai and Hanoi.
The Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday flights start from October 28, bringing its network to eight routes.
The addition comes with a promotional fare starting at Bt1,090 per trip until August 19 for travel from October 28 to March 29, 2019.
Santisuk Klongchaiya, CEO of Thai AirAsia, said the Chiang Mai flight hub is essential and it is always ready to extend its network.
It has six aeroplanes to serve domestic connections and international routes. It flies to Macau, Hong Kong, Hangzhou, Kuala Lumpur, Changsha, Yangon and Taipei, the most international routes from Chiang Mai.
“We are looking for new groups of travellers after seeing strong growth among tourists from China and wish to continue stimulating tourism in the destinations we serve,” Santisuk said.
