AirAsia is once again spreading its wings with the opening of a new route from Thailand’s resort town of Hua Hin to Kuala Lumpur and the launch of four direct flights a week starting from May 18.



The latest route is AirAsia Malaysia’s seventh to Thailand and a step towards the airline’s ambitions efforts to provide the widest network in Asean and connect less travelled destinations in the region to the world. 

“We are thrilled to introduce the Kuala Lumpur-Hua Hin route to our ever growing network, the airline’s Spencer Lee told The Nation.

“Since launching Phuket in 2003 as our first international route from Kuala Lumpur, we have added flights to another seven cities in Thailand. In 2017 alone, we carried about 1.3 million passengers from Kuala Lumpur to Thailand. With Thailand was ranked ninth among the world’s most visited countries by the United Nation’s World Tourism Organisation, we are positive that Hua Hin will be the new preferred holiday destination for Malaysian tourists 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 flies to 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 known for its excellent representation of the harmoniously multi-racial Malaysia. From its humble beginnings as a tin mining city, the city has transformed into one of the most developed capitals of Southeast Asia. Kuala Lumpur’s world-famous landmark, the Petronas Twin Towers is among popular places to visit as are the Central Market (Pasar Seni), Petaling Street and Bukit Bintang.

Attractions like Port Dickson, Genting Highlands, Cameron Highlands, Bukit Tinggi, Putrajaya, Batu Caves, and Sunway Lagoon are an easy day trip from the city centre. 

AirAsia’s offers a range of domestic flights to the idyllic island Langkawi as well as to Kota Kinabalu, home to Southeast Asia’s highest peak Mount Kinabalu, the Mulu Caves and Sipadan Island. 

To mark the announcement of the new route, AirAsia is offering promotional all-in-fares from Bt990 one way on www.Airasia.com and on AirAsia’s mobile app from now to March 4 for travel between May 18 to October 26.
