If you’re travelling from, or via, Kuala Lumpur or Chongqing to Krabi this season, you’re in luck! Air Asia has just announced new flights from these hubs to Krabi.
The move will increase the number of daily flights from the Malaysian capital to Krabi to 4, or 28 per week, starting 9 January 2019. It confirms the Thai beach area’s continued popularity as a short break destination in the Malaysian market – little wonder, with flight time only an hour and a half, and Halal food and accommodation options widely available.
The new daily flight from Chongqing to Krabi will commence 7 December 2018, and suggests that while neighbouring Phuket’s numbers of Chinese visitors have fallen sharply after last summer’s fatal ferry accident, Krabi remains on the Chinese bucket list. It’s good news for the local travel industry.
Flights can be booked directly on the Air Asia website.
