“This year, we are ready to fully enter the Japanese market through our new route from Bangkok to Sapporo on Hokkaido Island, which is a dream destination many have been waiting for as it is a destination “for all seasons” with highlights throughout the year. Visitors can see blooming Sakura flowers in the spring (April-May), witness the lavender fields in the summer (June-August), watch the trees change color in the fall (September-November) and enjoy skiing during the winter (December-February),” said Mr. Nadda Buranasiri, CEO of Thai AirAsia X.

From 26 March onward, the airline will also be increasing the frequency of its Bangkok- Tokyo route to 2 times per day and its Bangkok-Osaka route to daily.
