30 August 2013
Budget airline AirAsia has announced plans to launch regular flights from Bangkok’s Don Mueang Airport to Naypyidaw, reports Travel Daily News. The move comes a week after Thai airline Bangkok Airways announced that it had become the first international carrier to fly directly to the Burmese capital. According to Tassapon Bijleveld, CEO of Thai AirAsia, the airline will offer promotional fares until Sept. 8 for travel between Oct. 28, 2013 and Aug. 5th, 2014. “AirAsia is the first and only low-fare airline to serve this route from Don Mueang Airport,” he said, adding that new 180-seat Airbus A320s would be used for the one-hour flight between the two capitals.
