Bangkok, 14 June 2017 –AirAsia is launching new daily direct flights to the Maldives, the idyllic archipelago encircled by clear blue waters, with booking open today onward. The route is being introduced with a special promotional fare starting at all-in fare 1,990 THB* per trip available today until June 25, 2017 for travel from August 11, 2017 to August 28, 2018.
Mr. Santisuk Klongchaiya, Director of Commercial for Thai AirAsia, said that the Bangkok-Maldives (Male International Airport) daily direct flight will take to the sky on 11th of August 2017 with a special promotional fare that will let anyone travel to the much coveted destination with enough savings to fully enjoy all it has to offer.
The Maldives is among the world’s top destinations among Thai and international travellers alike with plentiful activities that range from coral diving and dolphin viewing to water sports and relaxation at private resorts. The islands also provide a wonderful opportunity to experience unique Maldivian, local lifestyles, and exciting activities that can be enjoyed equally by families, friends and couples.
“Many peoples’ perception of the Maldives is that it is costly and only caters to certain types of travelers, but today AirAsia is launching it so ‘Everyone Can Fly’ to the country to find out that it offers a wide variety of accommodations from guest houses to opulent resorts. Without the need for a visa (for Thai people), travelling to the Maldives is now easier than ever and we are confident the route will see robust growth, especially as AirAsia is the first low-fares carrier to offer Bangkok-Maldives link,” Mr. Santisuk explained.
AirAsia currently flies from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to the Maldives (Flight AK, 7 times a week). The addition of Bangkok as a gateway to the islands underlines the popularity of the destination.
