Bangkok--17 Oct--AirAsia

AirAsia's newest route lets citizens of Macao and China travel directly to Thailand's paradise island of Phuket, flying daily and direct from Macao to Phuket starting this January 8, 2018 with a special promotion starting at only 1,590 THB per trip. Book between October 16-29, 2017 for travel from January 8 to November 21, 2018.

Ms. Celia Lao, CEO of AirAsia Hong Kong & Macao, said Phuket is among the top destinations for Macanese and Chinese travellers, making Thai AirAsia's introduction of a direct flight between Phuket and Macao a wonderful opportunity for tourism. Coupled with AirAsia's many other direct flights to Macao, the new route promises great support to the city's tourism growth.

AirAsia currently operates 6 flights from Macao with routes including Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Pattaya (U-ta pao), Kuala Lumpur, Manila, Jakarta, and will launch Johor Bahru on Nov 28, 2017.

Mr. Santisuk Klongchaiya, Director of Commercial for Thai AirAsia, said Phuket is a city built on Chinese traditions, beliefs and culture and its history is closely tied to that of China. Chinese visitors to the city will find it familiar and convenient while still full of travel experiences whether relishing the nature or enjoying the nightlife. AirAsia is confident the new route will be well received.

"We will be launching the Macao-Phuket route on the 8th of January 2018 and believe it will attract people in Macao and its vicinity to Phuket. We will be using our strengths of low fares, on-time service and trustworthy reputation to draw in travellers and help stimulate the island's economy," Mr. Santisuk said.

For the people of Phuket, this added route provides a new travel option to Macao, which is already a top destination for Thai travellers due to its many holy sites and European architecture. Overall, the route should prove popular among people of both nations.

On top of Macao-Phuket, Thai AirAsia operates many more direct flights from Macao to Thailand, including; Macao-Don Mueang (4 flights a day), Macao-Chiang Mai (daily direct) and Macao-Pattaya U-Tapao (4 flights a week).

Travellers can book tickets at a promotional fare starting at only 1,590 THB at www.airasia.com from today to October 29, 2017 for travel from January 8 to November 21, 2018.
