AirAsia has continued to expand its operations from Pattaya’s U-Tapao Airport with the announcement of new domestic routes to Chiang Mai and Hat Yai.
The low-cost carrier recently announced its first domestic route from U-Tapao, connecting to Udon Thani in northeast Thailand. And on 27 November it will commence a new daily service between U-Tapao and Chiang Mai, in northern Thailand, followed two days later by three weekly flights to Hat Yai, the largest city in southern Thailand.
Flights to Chiang Mai will depart U-Tapao daily at 0640 and arrive in the northern Thai city at 0755. The return service then leaves at 0825 and arrives back in U-Tapao at 9030.
The Hat Yai flights will leave the Pattaya hub every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday at 1725 and arrive at 1835. The return flights will then depart Hat Yai at 1940 and arrive back at U-Tapao at 2050.
Both flights will be operated by Thai AirAsia using a 180-seat Airbus A320 aircraft.
AirAsia already connects U-Tapao with the Chinese cities of Nanning and Nanchang and will also launch services to Macau and Singapore next month
