Thai AirAsia feeling cozy at Don Mueang

Since Thai AirAsia moved their Bangkok hub to the city’s old Don Mueang Airport on October 1 the airline has been able to better manage costs and passengers, promising continued momentum off of sanguine third-quarter growth.

The airline carried approximately 2 million passengers in the third quarter of this year, equivalent to a 21.8 per cent rise year on year.

Third-quarter revenues for Asia Aviation plc, the majority shareholder of Thai Air Asia, were equally as impressive, posting $143 million and bringing 9-month revenue to $341.5 million.

Renovated facilities that are suitable for low-cost airlines at Don Mueang Airport will further promote expansive growth in the segment. The airport is also located closer to central Bangkok that Suvarnabhumi International Airport, providing more convenience for domestic passengers. It has been inundated during the 2011 floods but has been renovated since.

Thai AirAsia said it acquired an additional Airbus A320 in the third quarter, bringing its fleet to 25 aircraft.

“The continual expansion of the airline’s fleet has allowed it to grow on new routes and to increase more frequencies of major routes, especially for the Chinese market,” CEO Tassapon Bijleveld told The Nation.

Thai AirAsia launched three new routes to China this year servicing Chongqing, Wuhan and Xi’an.

The most populous nation in the world is expected to continue creating demand for connectivity across the region as wages continue to rise.
