Post by buksida » Wed Feb 28, 2018 10:13 pm

AirAsia, is set to fly to Hua Hin, Thailand, with four times weekly direct flights from here, starting May 18.

In a statement today, AirAsia said the route, operated on flight code AK, marked the airline's seventh route into Thailand while providing the widest network in ASEAN and connecting the road less travelled in the region to the world.

Head of Commercial, Spencer Lee, said the airline carried about 1.3 million of guests from Kuala Lumpur to Thailand and is positive that Hua Hin would be the new preferred holiday destination, while further contributing to tourism growth for both cities.

"AirAsia currently operates 165 weekly flights one way to Thailand, including 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) and now Hua Hin," he said.

To celebrate the launch of this new route, AirAsia is offering promotional all-in-fares from RM79 for one way from now to March 4, 2018, for the travel period between May 18, 2018, and Oct 26, 2018.

Looks as if Hua Hin airport is going to become active again,the Air Asia website is up and running, and are offering promo return flights,as of this morning from 2700baht,HH,to KUL,based upon a return flight booked for end may.This does not include any checked baggage,which as always is extra,the cabin allowance the usual 7kg.
The departure times from both airports are reasonable also,HH at 11,30,KUL at 10,00.
Will be interesting to see how the service pans out in the coming months.

I booked already a flight today for August. 2506.80 Baht for both directions +180 seat selection +180 for credit card payment. I hope it will be in service for a longer time than the other ones in the past.

If I recall correctly, AirAsia wanted a deal whereby Thailand pays to upgrade the airport, plus they wanted free or reduced landing fees for the initial period of operation.

So the Department of Airports decided to invest in services at the airport. They'll have to setup immigration, security, baggage handling, increased fire services.

FYI Hua Hin airport IATA code is HHQ
