Malaysia's low-coat carrier AirAsia is offering 5,000 free seats in conjunction with the launch of its direct daily flight between China's Hong Kong and Thailand's Bangkok on its brand new Airbus 320, the carrier said in a statement on Tuesday.
The offer was available only online at AirAsia's website within the booking period from tomorrow to Sept. 21 for the travel period from Oct. 26 to March 28, 2009, it said.
"The launch of our direct daily flight between Hong Kong and Bangkok will work hand-in-hand with our existing connections, especially our Hong Kong to Kuala Lumpur route, and will further strengthen our position in ASEAN, China and Australia," the regional head of commercial AirAsia, Kathleen Tan, said.
AirAsia has continued to buck up industry trends with its rapid expansion plans and has grown its regional network considerably in the past months offering leading low cost-service to meet the increased demand from business and leisure travelers alike.
"The Hong Kong - Bangkok route will provide increased access to Thailand for the huge tourism market in China," she said.
