AirAsia to launch Ahmedabad-Bangkok direct flights from May 31

AirAsia will start its inaugural Ahmedabad route – starting May 31, 2019, with special all-in promotional fares exclusively for AirAsia BIG members from Rs 4,999 one way. Guests can take advantage of the convenient flight schedule with early morning arrival and evening departure, which gives them more time to spend in Bangkok.

Ahmedabad is the ninth Indian destination for AirAsia Thailand (carrier code FD), after Kochi, Chennai, Kolkata, Bengaluru, Bhubaneswar, Jaipur, Visakhapatnam and Gaya (seasonal). Book from 9-21 April 2019 for travel between 31 May 2019 and 4 February 2020 on airasia.com or the AirAsia mobile app.

“India is a strategic market for AirAsia and our focus is on further growing our international connectivity to the country. This new route will expand the travel opportunities for the people of western India, and we are confident that our unique combination of low fares and award-winning service will stimulate traffic on this underserved route and fuel tourism and economic growth,” said Santisuk Klongchaiya, CEO, AirAsia Thailand.

AirAsia Thailand has recorded a positive load factor of up to 87 percent on its India routes, with guests travelling between Bangkok and existing destinations in India increasing 7 per cent on-year, translating into economic benefits for both countries.

Guests who wish to explore AirAsia’s network beyond Bangkok can make use of the convenient Fly-Thru service, which allows them to transit via Bangkok with baggage checked through from Ahmedabad to domestic destinations such as Chiang Mai, Phuket and Krabi, as well as other Asian cities like Singapore, Bali, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Ho Chi Minh and Tokyo.
