AirAsia launches cheap direct flights from Bangkok to Maldives

AirAsia launches cheap direct flights from Bangkok to Maldives

Thai AirAsia is launching daily direct flights between Bangkok and the Maldives in August, and the fare is a fraction of the service offered by Bangkok Airways, who was previously the sole operator of the non-stop route.

Starting from Aug. 11, the daily AirAsia flight to the Maldives will leave Don Mueang at 9:30am. The return flight to Bangkok departs Malé International Airport at 12:30pm.

Thai AirAsia launched a promo fare of THB1,990 one-way, inclusive of taxes and fees, which you can book until June 25. Note that prices vary depends on the dates.

Still, it is big drop compared to a one-way fare of THB13,500 plus tax fare from Bangkok Airways.

The low-cost airline expects the route will be at least 85 percent booked, as Maldives has long been a popular beach destination, according to Bangkok Post

For this route, the airline will use 180-seat Airbus A320 single-aisle jets.
