AirAsia to launch Direct Flights between Kuala Lumpur and Krabi

Travel News Asia Friday, 6 July 2007

AirAsia is preparing to serve direct flights between Kuala Lumpur and one of Thailands most beautiful getaways - Krabi, beginning 21 August 2007 with three Airbus flights weekly. Promotional launch fares start from RM39.99 / THB429. Thai AirAsia currently serves three daily flights to Krabi from Bangkok.

Relatively unspoilt, Krabi is nestled in the south of Thailand, along the coast of Andaman Sea. One of the few undisturbed tropical beach resorts, complete with trails of mountain adventures and meandering river valleys, Krabi provides stunning panoramas for photographers and activities such as rock climbing and diving for visitors. The province of Krabi consists of 130 islands in the Andaman Sea.

Kathleen Tan, Executive Vice President Commercial, AirAsia, said, The trends in traveling have changed over the years and with our everyday low fares, many can now afford to fly. One noticeable trend is more and more people are taking short breaks as opposed to taking one or two long vacations in a year. One can now easily take a weekend getaway in Krabi to unwind, similar to Bali and Phuket. With holiday destinations of choice often dictated by airfare these days, we hope to continue opening new markets to travel with our low fares and to raise the profile of Krabi as one of the top international tourist destinations.

For those who want more to enjoying the warm Andaman sea breeze and chilling out on the beach, Krabi has plenty of activities to keep them busy including rock climbing and jungle trekking in the National Park located northwest of Krabi, scuba diving, snorkeling, sea kayaking, and island hopping. Scuba diving in Krabi runs all year round but the best diving conditions are from November to April.
