AirAsia launches direct flights from Brisbane to Bangkok
Flights now on sale from $239 a pop.Budget carrier AirAsia has unveiled that it'll be flying direct between Bangkok and Brisbane four times weekly from 25 June 2019. And in true AirAsia fashion, the airline is celebrating by offering flights on the route from just $239 each way, or $478 return.
These must be booked before 17 February and are for travel between 26 June and 26 October 2019 only.
You know the deal: get booking now so you can bag bragging rights later.
AirAsia currently flies out of Sydney, Perth, Gold Coast and Melbourne, and this is the first time its added Brisbane to its route map.
"This new route to Brisbane will not only increase traffic between Thailand and Queensland, but importantly provide guests with a low-cost option to explore Bangkok and the more than 130 destinations found in AirAsia's network," says AirAsia X Group CEO Nadda Buranasiri.
Making this route even more special is that the flights are non-stop. So you won't need to transfer in the airline's home city of Kuala Lumpur as you typically would on its other routes.
One of the reasons behind this is the fact that flights won't be operated by AirAsia but by its affiliate Thai AirAsia X, which is based in Thailand.
The scheduled flights take off from Brisbane on Tuesday, Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday at 12:50pm local time and arrive in Bangkok's Don Muang International Airport at 7:10pm local time.
The return flights take off from Bangkok on Monday, Tuesday, Friday and Saturday at 11:40pm to return to Brisbane at 11:35am the following day.
