Thai AirAsia X has launched a Sky Ticket service along with a new expansive menu.

The airline has partnered Quality Express, Keisei Electric Railway, Kansai Airport Transportation Enterprise and Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan in order to offer bus, train and attraction tickets in Japan for purchase inflight from 1 December 2014.

In addition to the new Sky Ticket services, over 24 meals are now available to be pre-booked online.

Nadda Buranasiri, CEO of Thai AirAsia X, said, Thai AirAsia X has gone the extra mile to offer its F.I.T. passengers more choices and freedom than ever to customize their travel experience. In addition to our new delicious menu featuring over 24 meal options, we are extremely proud to launch our new one-stop Sky Ticket service. Passengers traveling to Japan will now be able to conveniently connect from the airport to downtown Tokyo and Osaka while enjoying popular tourist attractions such as Universal Studios Japan or the Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan. We are excited to be the first airline to partner up with major transportation providers and offer tickets to local attractions onboard which will certainly be advantageous for our passengers who can now maximize their time at the destination by avoiding any ticket cues.

Apart from the high-speed train from Narita airport to Nippori and Ueno station, ordinary 7-day JR passes will also be available onboard, enabling passengers to travel all over Japan on all JR modes of transportation including trains and busses.

Those arriving in Osaka will be able to purchase Airport Limousine Bus Tickets from Kansai International Airport to Osaka Station along with tickets to Osakas famous attractions such Universal Studios Japan where Harry Potter fans can experience the latest attraction - The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

Last but not least, Japans second largest aquarium, Kaiyukan, is not to be missed especially for families with children who would like to enjoy a variety of rare and spectacular sea creatures and plants.

Beyond our low fares and excellent connectivity, the freedom to choose a travel experience that suits each persons need and the ability to purchase tickets from the one-stop Sky Ticket service onboard is priceless. Thai AirAsia Xs variety of seats, meals, and tickets onboard make us an airline of choices - whether it is a choice between our award-winning business class seats, quiet zone or regular economy class seats or the ability to choose from up to 24 items on our menu, we believe that such choices will create a better travel experience for each individual traveler. We are confident that the new additions will increase our ancillary income from 15% to 20%, said Nadda Buranasiri.

In addition to the Sky-Ticket service, Thai AirAsia Xs new menu offers Thai, international, vegetarian dishes and a brand new coconut pudding dessert. Authentic Thai dishes include spicy fried chicken with rice topped with a traditional Thai omelette, while the international menu features a Japanese bento set which offers a combination of Japanese cuisine including shrimp roll, chicken teriyaki roll, salmon tempura roll, fried chicken karaage, egg roll with spinach and shiabazuke pickled cucumbers served with mineral water. Vegetarians can enjoy up to 4 options including stir-fried Chinese noodles with vegetables, stir-fried rice noodles with coconut milk, pad Thai noodles with tofu, and vegetarian Thai panaeng curry with rice.

The new menu is now available, while Sky Ticket services will be launched on flights from Bangkok to Japan starting from 1 December 2014 onwards.

This year the airline has launched direct flights from Bangkok to Seoul, Tokyo and Osaka with 2 Airbus A330-300 aircraft. Thai AirAsia X is scheduled to receive its third aircraft in March 2015 which will be used to increase frequency between Bangkok and Narita to double daily flights and Bangkok to Osaka to daily flights.
