AirAsia to commence four services from Chiang Rai in Jan/Feb-2019

    Thai AirAsia announced (17-Dec-2018) plans to commence three times weekly Chiang Rai-Macau service on 30-Jan-2019, four times weekly Chiang Rai-Kuala Lumpur service on 31-Jan-2019, three times weekly Chiang Rai-Singapore service on 31-Jan-2019 and three times weekly Chiang Rai-Phuket service on 01-Feb-2019. The airline said the new services will drive Chiang Rai toward becoming its seventh hub in Thailand. CEO Santisuk Klongchaiya said: “We chose the three international destinations… because they already account for a strong amount of visitors to Thailand who will likely be interested in Chiang Rai. Domestically we chose Phuket to offer the best possible regional connection”.
