Thai AirAsiaX will start daily direct flights between Bangkok Don Muang and Sapporo New Chitose Airport on May 1st 2015.
Starting from March 26, the airline also will increase the frequency of its Bangkok-Tokyo route to two flights per day. And its flights to Osaka will become daily, up from five times a week. As the result, Thai AirAsiaX will have four daily flights to Japan.
The airline initially carried about 80% Thai passengers, but the ratio has dropped to around 65%, with the rest Japanese. The company expects to fill half their seats with Japanese customers in the future.
To promote the new route, the airline will offer 10,000 seats at 3,990 baht for booking from today until Sunday. Travel must occur between May 1 and March 26 of next year.
