Thai AirAsia has launched twice daily flights
between Don Mueang and Sakon
With the launch of flights to Sakon Nakhon, the airline
now operates 15 destinations within Thailand.
Thus far, domestic Thai travelers make up 95% of
tickets sold, though the number of foreign tourists are expected
to grow especially
during Sakhon Nakhon’s festival periods.
“Until the end of the year, we have advanced
bookings for Don Mueang - Sakon Nakhon at an average Load Factor
of 85% per flight, a very strong sign that the tourism sector is
returning to vibrancy. By offering two daily flights, one in the morning
and one in the evening, I’m sure we can expand our allure to even more
customer groups,” said Mr. Santisuk Klongchaiya, Director of
Commercial for Thai AirAsia.
“We will work closely with the Tourism Authority
of Thailand, the province’s local Chamber of Commerce and its
businesses as well as members of the press to promote travel and
investment by playing up Sakon Nakhon’s strengths, such as the
fact that it is a fun province that is close to other travel
locations, including Nakhon Phanom and Mukdahan. We will promote
cultural tourism based on the northeastern region’s colorful
traditions as well as its cuisine. AirAsia has 2 daily direct
flights from Bangkok to Nakhon Phanom and will now be able to
offer City Transfer services from either Nakhon Phanom or Sakon
Nakhon to Mukdahan, we are sure that this will strengthen travel
in the area,” Mr. Santisuk added.
