Mr. Nadda Buranasiri, CEO of Thai AirAsia X, said that the airline is very grateful to be bringing back flights from Don Mueang to Sapporo, capital city of the island of Hokkaido. The route is the first addition by Thai AirAsia X following the lifting of Thailand’s red flag by the International Civil Aviation Organization, or ICAO. Hokkaido is a very high potential destination and is already second only to Tokyo in terms of most popular place to visit in Japan among Thai travellers. The island can be visited year-round with distinct charms both in the summer and winter and is best known for its wealth of seafood, especially the ever popular Taraba Crab. Visitors can enjoy Sapporo’s catchy travel concept “Eat Crab, Watch Bears, Go Skiing, See the Lavenders” with a just about 7-hour flight from Bangkok.
The addition of Sapporo offers a new travel option for both Thai and foreign travellers, including those in Japan who wish to fly low fares to Thailand. Thai AirAsia X is an expert in the Japanese market and is always seeking out new opportunities. This year, Mr. Nadda believes the aviation industry will likely grow significantly with many airlines planning expansion. The high activity should prove beneficial to both the airline and tourism industries and offer great value to travellers. The optimism follows Thai AirAsia X in 2017 finding success from its strategy of continually adding flight frequencies and strengthening its network in north Asia.
Thai AirAsia X currently flies direct from Bangkok (Don Mueang Airport) to Seoul, South Korea three times a day; Tokyo, Japan two times a day; Osaka, Japan two times a day and Shanghai, China one time a day. In 2018, Thai AirAsia X is targeting acquiring 3 more Airbus A330 airplanes to finish the year with a fleet of 9 in support of its expanding network of destinations and flights.
