Thai AirAsia is continuing its rapid expansion into China, with the launch of a new service to the city of Changsha.
Commencing on 24 January 2014, the low-cost carrier will operate daily flights from Bangkok’s Don Mueang International Airport to Changsha, the capital of Hunan province. Flights will depart Bangkok at 0735, arriving in Changsha’s Huanghua International Airport at 1205. The return service will leave the Chinese city at 1255, getting back in Don Mueang at 1535.
As with all Thai AirAsia’s flights, it will be operated using a 180-seat, all-economy Airbus A320 aircraft.
“Changsha… was chosen due to its business and tourism capabilities, which have been consistently growing,” explained Tassapon Bijleveld, CEO of Thai AirAsia.
“We are convinced that with Changsha’s potential and AirAsia’s low fare daily flights, departing from Bangkok early in the morning, travellers will receive the utmost in both value and convenience.”
Changsha, which is famous for being one of the birthplaces of China’s communist movement, becomes Thai AirAsia’s ninth destination in China, following Macau, Hong Kong, Chongqing, Wuhan, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Xi’an and Kunming.
