Thai AirAsia is getting ready to launch direct daily flights between Hong Kong and Bangkok. The new route, which will be launched in October, will operate with AirAsias new Airbus A320 aircraft.

The daily flights will depart Bangkok at 16:30 arriving in Hong Kong at 20:15. The return leg will leave Hong Kong at 20:50 to arrive in Bangkok at 22:50.

Commenting on the new route launch Tassapon Bijleveld, Chief Executive Officer of Thai AirAsia, said, We are thrilled to be pioneering the low cost model in Hong Kong, and to be extending our notoriously low fares to passengers throughout the region. The new Hong Kong - Bangkok route will help improve trade flows and investment in the region and provide increased access to Thailand for the huge tourism market in China, from where they will be able to easily connect to the many other exciting cities that AirAsia flies to.

With strong tourism in both regions AirAsia is optimistic that the new route will achieve load factors of over 80% within the first year of operation.
