Bangkok, 29 January 2018 –Thai AirAsia X (Code XJ) affirms its commitment to the Japanese market by increasing its frequency of flights from Bangkok (Don Mueang) to Tokyo (Narita) to 3 per day, allowing travellers to fly in the morning, afternoon and at night as they wish just in time for Sakura season while also offering promotional fares starting all-in at only 3,333 THB* one way for the added flights.

Mr. Nadda Buranasiri, Chief Executive Officer of Thai AirAsia X, said Tokyo is the number one destination for Thai travellers to Japan in which the number is only likely to grow as this year continues.
The city has high potential for repeat visits, group tours and Fully Independent Travellers (FIT) as it serves as a jump off point to the World Heritage City of Nikko and the natural splendor of Nagano which are becoming increasingly popular. The trend unlocks new travel opportunities, indicating that Japan truly owns boundless tourism experiences. “Meanwhile, Thailand has also grown its popularity among Japanese visitors. According to 2017 statistic, a number of Japanese travellers to Thailand rose up to seven percent** from the previous year and we believe we can contribute more to the growing proportion of both Japanese and foreign travellers. As a leading low-hual low-cost airline in the region, we are proud to be supporting the growth
of tourism and the economies of both Thailand and Japan. We are committed to improve our services as last year we had been consistently reliable in terms of On-Time Performance, averaging as high as 92 percent in all the routes combined. This accomplishment signifies our strength beyond being a low-cost carrier but demonstrating high quality services which helps us grow constantly,” Mr. Nadda said.
The AirAsia brand is becoming more well-received in the Japanese market and Thai AirAsia X is determined to continually promote its routes from Don Mueang to Tokyo, Osaka and the newly added Sapporo. We are supported by flights from our fellow AirAsia group members operating out of Kuala Lumpur, Bali and Hawaii as well as AirAsia Japan which operates domestic flights in the country.
