About Thai AirAsia

Company Information

Founded in 2003, Thai AirAsia launched its scheduled service in 2004. Air Asia Thailand is an affiliate of the wider AirAsia network.

Since 2012, Don Mueang has been used as Airasia Thailand airport.

The airline's current fleet size (Feb 2020) consists of 63 aircraft. The major part of the fleet (50 aircraft) is Thai AirAsia A320-200 accommodating up to 180 passengers.
Note that AirAsia Thai services domestic and short-haul international routes only.
Long-haul international routes are operated by Thai AirAsia X, also headquartered in the same airport. Air Asia X Thailand is the first operator in Asia to have A330neo in their fleet.

Skytrax, the international air transport rating organisation, for several years in a row named AirAsia the “World's Best Low-cost Airline”.
Thai Air Asia is the sponsor of several football teams across Thailand as well as London-based Queen’s Park Rangers and former Premier League champions Leicester City. The company has annual revenue of THB27.5bn!

The airline flies to 67 regional destinations, both domestic and international.

AirAsia Thailand destinations list includes airports in Thailand as well as in Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Laos, Macao, Malaysia, Maldives, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, and Vietnam.

Domestic destinations

In Bangkok, all AirAsia Thailand domestic flights are operated from the airline’s main hub and second international airport of the Thai capital, Don Mueang.
Chiang Mai and Phuket serve as Thai AirAsia’s secondary hubs. There is plenty of choice if you are planning on flying from one of these airports to domestic and international destinations, without having to change at Bangkok.

Thai AirAsia runs a very frequent timetable of domestic flights to Chiang Mai. Thai AirAsia flight to Chiang Mai is a very quick journey taking just 1 ¼ hours, much faster than the train!

There are also plenty of flights from Bangkok to Krabi and Phuket throughout the day.

Air Asia Thailand Reviews

Positive reviews of Thai AirAsia tend to focus on:

  1. The range of possible departures every day, enabling you to reach many destinations in Asia;

  2. A smooth booking process even for connecting flights;

  3. Punctuality as Thai AirAsia is one of the most punctual ASEAN airline with 96% of flights on time;

  4. A very useful Thai AirAsia’s Island Transfer Service.

Customers sometimes get annoyed by the following facts:

  1. Unlike some of their budget competitors in the region, Thai AirAsia charges extra for checked luggage.

  2. Paying for checked luggage at the airport costs much more than online – if you have bought less kg than your luggage actually weighs, be prepared to shell out some more bucks.

  3. No food or drink included on Thai AirAsia flights but in general this is unlikely to be a problem on domestic or short-haul international flights.

We cannot check in the airline’website. The reason they gave us : we have not bought our flight tickets on the airline company ( but to the 12go.asia ) The booking number of 12go.asia isn’t recognized. We must go on the counter at the airport ! So, - we can’t check the flight , if it’s on time , or delayed or canceled - we can’t check in before

Flying with Thai AirAsia was a mistake. Sadly, it was the best option when I went to book. Delayed check-in and delayed flight by about 20 to 30 minutes. They said we weren't allowed to eat or drink anything on board the aircraft due to covid-19, which is utterly ridiculous. The cabin crew didn't care that the guy next to me was using his phone while we were taxiing to the runway and also did not tell him to put his carry on luggage under the seat in front of him. No thank you's or good-byes when getting off either.

Bought 2 plane tickets from Chiang Mai to Phuket. I asked a checkin baggage of 25Kg for each When I arrived to the airport, I found out that it was issued on ticket without checked in baggage. I had to pay at the airport 2050 Baht for the additional baggage. On the other hand, It was issued an insurance policy that I waived, as it was a one way ticket. I am upset!!!
