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.

Some details of popular AirAsia Thailand routes are below. Remember that prices of flights are notoriously changeable so it is best to always book in advance and, if possible, have flexibility surrounding your departure dates to ensure you get the best deal.

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.

Some of the popular Thai islands which do not have their own airport are still in the list of Air Asia Thailand Destinations. The airline offers a very handy Island Transfer Service. It will bring you to:

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.

Arrived. Flight was delayed. One day before the flight, we received an e-mail that the flight would be delayed by 35 minutes. At the time of the delay, the plane had just arrived. So we were over an hour late. There was still a bit of garbage from the flight before.

I'm quite tall (203 cm)o just sitting in a regular place is horrible. Lucked out by sitting in a hot seat (it's red, no idea why it's a hot seat) with a space between me and a fellow traveler. So I could shift my legs to the free space so I was sitting quite well. Took an hour in total to get to bankok and bags were really fast at the belt

The only thing I have something to comment on is that the explanation for the emergency door was very poor. I had been assigned a seat next to the emergency exit and this was my first time sitting here. The crewmember said only if you have questions look at the explanation and otherwise push a button. At least I assumed he said this because I could barely understand him. He did not take the time and effort to explain. Otherwise had a quiet flight, people at the airport were friendly , no delays . So fine

Easy to book. Only the people in the office from the ferry are not informed about the travel agency phantam They told us that we go to the ferry. The worker there told us we must go to the office and so on….. The trip was ok. The flight was ok. Attention for the weight of your luggage. I have to pay 1700 baht for 5 kg overweight The 15 kg luggage weight cost 450 baht. The next Level 20 kg , I didn’t know only 59 bath more
