AirAsia has resumed its direct Suvarnabhumi-Hat Yai route from Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport to Hat Yai, offering more travel options for passengers alongside its existing service from Don Mueang Airport.

The reintroduction of Suvarnabhumi-Hat Yai route, according to Thai AirAsia, responds to strong customer demand and high occupancy rates, particularly on the Don Mueang-Hat Yai route, which consistently achieves a passenger load factor of around 95 percent. Hat Yai, a key commercial and tourist hub in southern Thailand, continues to attract significant interest throughout the year.

The airline is offering promotional fares starting at just THB 1,000 one-way, bookable through AirAsia MOVE (mobile application) from April 17 to May 17, 2024, for travel commencing on July 1, 2024.

One fine threadfin can cost you Bt1,600 (USD 41) per kilogram, while salted king mackerel costs around Bt350.

Promotional fares are subject to availability and may not be offered on all flights or during peak travel periods. Additional charges for auxiliary services and other fees apply. Terms and conditions apply.

This development underscores AirAsia’s ongoing expansion in Thailand, where it is recognised for its punctuality and extensive network, particularly in the southern regions of the country. The airline operates 17 domestic routes with up to 391 flights per week.
