AirAsia bolsters its domestic network with the addition of the "Don Mueang-Khon Kaen" route, flying direct twice daily starting from 28 October 2013. Introductory promotional fares are available via all booking channels. The airline is ready to offer convenient flights for city residents from Don Mueang Airport, a fleet of brand new airplanes, and the best on-time record in Thailand.

Mr. Tassapon Bijleveld, CEO of Thai AirAsia, explained that the airline plans to acquire 5 additional new aircraft in Q4 of 2013, which will result in a fleet of 35 new planes by year-end. The expanded fleet will strengthen the airline's capability to offer an extensive network of domestic and international routes, along with new and exciting destinations which will be launched in the near future.

The route was launched in direct response to the needs of a wide array of travelers from the public to the private sector who need convenient travel to attend training sessions in the province. Having the flights depart from Don Mueang offers ease to travelers coming from the city and Thai AirAsia's high on time record in Thailand provides them with confidence. Tourists will also benefit from the opening because they will be able to travel with the lowest fares and on the newest planes with AirAsia. The route is sure to be well received" said Mr. Tassapon.
