Bangkok--28 Oct--AirAsia

AirAsia inaugurated its flights to Khon Kaen today (Oct. 28) with a surprise member on its cabin crew, superstar "Nadech Kugimiya", who served up smiles to passengers on flight FD3250 Don Mueang-Khon Kaen and even took part in passing out university preparation booklets at Khon Kaen Wittayayon School alongside media members and Thai AirAsia Facebook fans.

Mr. Santisuk Klongchaiya, Director of Commercial for Thai AirAsia, said that as soon as AirAsia began booking flights on its Don Mueang-Khon Kaen route, the addition was well received with its low price and offer of new planes and punctuality. The 2 flight per day schedule of the route has proven to satisfy the needs of many travellers, including Khon Kaen native and avid AirAsia customer "Nadech Kugimiya", who contributed his star power to the route's inauguration.

"For the first ever FD3250 Don Mueang-Khon Kaen flight, we wanted to surprise our passengers by having Nadech Kugimiya dress as one of our cabin crew and even serve in-flight meals in a familiar fashion. It was a travel experience we wanted to gift to our customers to thank them for choosing AirAsia to fly to Khon Kaen" Mr. Santisuk said.

Flight FD3250 Don Mueang-Khon Kaen departed from Don Mueang airport at 7.10 hrs to arrive in Khon Kaen at 8.05 hrs, where a welcoming ceremony received passengers by tying traditional North Eastern plaid cloths around them for good fortune. Nadech Kugimiya continued on with AirAsia to hand out university preparation booklets at Khon Kaen Wittayayon School, to the delight of the school's students and his local fans.
