PHUKET: AirAsia continues to expand its network from Phuket with a new direct flight Phuket-Jakarta, the capital of Indonesia, to operate 3 times a week starting July 2, 2019. Fly to Indonesia’s gateway at a promotional fare starting from only THB 1,450 per trip (for BIG members), available for booking today to May 12, 2019 for travel from July 2 to October 29, 2019.
AirAsia Thailand CEO K. Santisuk Klongchaiya, said “the airline has devoted great importance to expanding the networks of its regional hubs to strengthen its overall network and provide ever more travel opportunities. Phuket is a province with high tourism potential and is popular among both Thai and foreign travelers. The addition of a direct flight from Phuket to Jakarta, the capital of Indonesia, will present another way for tourists to reach Indonesia and connect to its other destination cities such as Bali, while also creating a gateway from Indonesia to Phuket.
“Phuket is an important strategic hub for AirAsia that has shown continual growth. We already introduced 1 international route to the hub this year with Phuket-Phnom Penh and now Phuket-Jakarta will serve travelers looking to connect from Phuket directly to Indonesia as well as business groups seeking convenient travel to Jakarta. The addition truly bolsters our ASEAN network.”
Jakarta is the largest capital in Southeast Asia and is an economic epicenter as well as a melting pot of Indonesia’s various cultures. The city has myriad important tourist destinations such as Istiqlal Mosque, the largest in Southeast Asia and the country’s central mosque as well as Jakarta Cathedral and Batavia.
From Jakarta, travelers can also easily continue on to Bali and Medan as AirAsia also operates a variety of connections within Indonesia.
Thai AirAsia operates 10 international flights from Phuket, namely; Phuket-Wuhan, Phuket-Kunming, Phuket-Hong Kong, Phuket-Macau, Phuket-Siem Reap, Phuket-Singapore, Phuket-Kuala Lumpur (Code AK), Phuket-Penang (Code AK), Phuket-Phnom Penh and now Phuket-Jakarta.
