Thai AirAsia has launched twice daily flights between Don Mueang and Sakon Nakhon.

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.
