AirAsia opens Thailand's Easy Island Transfers
AirAsia opens a new service for true travel enthusiasts, allowing them to add convenient transfers to 5 of the most popular south sea islands of Thailand to their ticket purchases via www.airasia.com.
Passengers can book this service online starting from September 13, while transfer services will become available starting from October 15. The new 5 island destinations include Samui, Phangan, Phi Phi, Lanta and Lipe Island.
Tassapon Bijleveld, CEO of Thai AirAsia, said that AirAsia’s determination to make its services more convenient and responsive to the demands of its travellers led to the creation of Thailand's Easy Island Transfers, which allows for easy travel to southern Thailand’s most popular islands. The idea is to offer a one-stop shop service for travelers who are looking for a simple, economical and convenient way to access Thailand's southern islands.
"We noticed that most travellers to the southern provinces of Phuket, Surat Thani, Krabi, Nakhon Si Thammarat and Hat Yai continue on to either Samui, Phangan, Phi Phi, Lanta or Lipe Island, so it made sense for us to offer transfers to the islands alongside our ticketing service in order to give travelers that added convenience when planning their trips," said the CEO.
Thailand's Easy Island Transfer service begins by letting customers choose one of the 5 island destinations of Samui, Phangan, Phi Phi, Lanta or Lipe Island. The booking system will then automatically select the nearest airstrip to the island. Upon arrival to the airport, a passenger vehicle will collect them and transport them to the appropriate pier so they may embark on a ferry ride to their chosen island. AirAsia has joined forces with the most trusted local service providers to assure that this service is as enjoyable as it is economical.
