AirAsia to link Bangkok with Colombo
Sirima Eamtako, Bangkok, January 10, 2012
 

AIRASIA will launch a new daily flight between Bangkok and Colombo, Sri Lanka, from March 1.

 

Thai AirAsia CEO Tassapon Bijleveld said the new service was part of the airline’s ongoing expansion plan, and this would offer Thai travellers an alternative destination, while drawing visitors from South Asia to the kingdom.

 

“Business travellers and tourists will now be able to affordably access this destination,” he said in reference to AirAsia’s promotional offer of 1,490 baht (US$47) for a one-way fare on the new route.

 

The Bangkok-Colombo service, which is receiving reservations now, will operate with the newly-acquired Airbus A320 aircraft with 180 seats.
