Direct Flight - Khon Kaen to Phuket
« on: October 31, 2017, 07:05:10 AM »
It was announced, effective 22 December on MWFSu, there will be direct nonstop flights to Phuket.  These flights will replace the Hat Yai flights on MWFSu.   The ability to reserve flights on these new routes will be allowed on the 1st of November.  See the link below.  Hat Yai flights will still be running on TuThSa.

In the unlikely event there is anyone out there as dumb as me, " MWFSu" refers to days of the week, not the Airline, which in this case is AirAsia.

That's a good one Rex!

We just booked tickets to Phuket from Khon Kaen for the 1st through the 5th.  Reasonably priced.  Also got a great rate from Avis rentacar for the 4 days.

Just looked on 'AirAsia.com' KKC to HKT and found nothing. Probably that AirAsia has numerous sub companies. Forget it!

January promos starting at 690 Baht one way.
Saves the long drive to Udon.

Charlie59,

Made my reservations on www.airasia.com for the 1st of January.  If you read my initial discussoions on this thread, you would have seen the first flight scheduled would be on the 22nd of December to Phuket from Khon Kaen for 890 baht.  Then you have the many alternate dates for returning.

You might be able to see by clicking on this link:

Sorry about that. My mistake as I did search dates earlier than the start of flights. I hope the flights are a success.

Air Asia's flights to Hat Yai must not have overly popular so Air Asia moved the destination to Phuket 4 days a week and left the other 3 days for Hat Yai.
