Along with the recently resumed AirAsia flights from Kuala Lumpur to Phuket last week, the airline has just announced AirAsia flights from Kuala Lumpur to Bangkok are also now operating twice a week.
The first flight was on an Airbus A320, with two scheduled weekly flights from Kuala Lumpur to Bangkok occurring going forward.
Still a far cry from the several flights daily AirAsia used to run from Kuala Lumpur to Bangkok and back, but at least a step in the direction of normal resumption of services.
The airline also plans on resuming more flights between Malaysia and Thailand soon, depending on the popularity of the Bangkok and Phuket flights, as well as on travel restrictions not being reimplemented by the Thai government.
Everyone on board an AirAsia flight from Kuala Lumpur to Bangkok must be fully vaccinated, as per AirAsia’s new rules.
For those who are unvaccinated and plan on remaining that way, that rule will eliminate them from being able to use the budge airline’s services.
Other airlines in the region, however, do not have such strict requirements on flights to Bangkok.
Specifically as the Thai government does not require vaccination to enter Thailand, but only quarantine for those who do not want to take an experimental vaccine.
AirAsia passengers must also meet all the Thai government’s travel requirements prior to boarding. Should they not, they will be denied permission to board.
AirAsia flights from Kuala Lumpur to Bangkok are currently costing 199 ringgits, or approximately $48. from now until 30th March, 2022 if booked through the ‘Flights’ icon on the AirAsia Super App.
Be aware as well, AirAsia has made contactless check-in mandatory on all flights. If you do not use a smart phone, you will have to fly with another airline.
