Thai AirAsia is launching 4 direct flights a week from Chiang Mai-Hanoi (Monday/Wednesday/Friday/Sunday) starting this 28 October 2018, driving Chiang Mai towards becoming an international flight hub by bringing its network to 8 routes. The addition comes with a promotional fare starting at only 1,090 THB per trip available for booking today to 19 August 2018 for travel from 28 October 2018 to 29 March 2019.
Mr. Santisuk Klongchaiya, CEO of Thai AirAsia, stated Thai AirAsia sees its Chiang Mai flight hub as essential and is always ready to extend its network. The hub has 6 airplanes stationed to serve both domestic connections and international routes. The latest addition is “Chiang Mai-Hanoi”, the 8th international route from Chiang Mai after flights to Macau, Hong Kong, Hangzhou, Kuala Lumpur (AK), Changsha, Yangon and Taipei and established AirAsia as the airline with the most international routes from Chiang Mai, meaning the people of Chiang Mai always have options for comfortable travel.
“From the start of 2018, we have been adding routes to our Chiang Mai hub with an emphasis on international connections. So far we have introduced 3 new routes to 3 different countries, flying Chiang Mai to Yangon, Taipei and now Hanoi. We are looking for new groups of travelers after seeing strong growth among tourists from China and wish to continue stimulating tourism in the destinations we serve” Mr. Santisuk explained.
Hanoi is the capital of Vietnam and is situated in the country’s north. A unique destination, the city boasts European architecture in its historic quarter, world famous street food, stylish cafes suited to both sipping and snapping shots and a variety of street art waiting to be discovered. Visitors can cruise out onto popular Ha Long Bay or continue onward to the mist shrouded city of Sabah with its year-round cool weather and verdant stepped fields. In Sabah, tourists can also ride a cable car to the peak of Fansipan Mountain, considered the roof of Indochina.
“Hanoi is an endlessly enchanting city for travelers of all types from leisurely to adventurous or even cultural and is especially suited to younger travelers on a tighter budget. People who visited Hanoi should see it once again as the modern city is just as charming as it ever was. Traveling on AirAsia’s large 180 seat airplanes means shorter travel times and much greater comfort” Mr. Santisuk remarked.
