AirAsia has unveiled plans to launch flights between Kuala Lumpur and the popular Thai coastal town of Hua Hin, south of Bangkok.
The airline will operate the route four times per week starting 18 May 2018.
With a flight time of roughly two hours, AK830 is scheduled to depart Kuala Lumpur every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday at 10:00 arriving in Hua Hin at 11:00. The return flight, AK831, is timed to depart Hua Hin at 11:30 and arrive back in Kuala Lumpur at 14:35.
Spencer Lee, Head of Commercial, AirAsia Malaysia said, We are thrilled to introduce Kuala Lumpur-Hua Hin route as the latest addition to our ever-growing network. Since launching Phuket in 2003 as our first international route from Kuala Lumpur, we currently have flights to seven cities in Thailand. In 2017 alone, we carried about 1.3 million of guests from Kuala Lumpur to Thailand. Moreover, Thailand was ranked ninth among the worlds most visited countries by the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) report published in 2017. Hence, we are positive that Hua Hin will be the new preferred holiday destination and hope that the new route will further contribute to the tourism growth for both cities.
To celebrate the new route, AirAsia is offering promotional all-in-fares from THB 990 one way until 4 March 2018 for travel between 18 May 2018 and 26 October 2018.
AirAsia Malaysia currently operates 165 weekly flights to Thailand. Besides Hua Hin, the airline also flies to six other routes to Thailand such as 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).
