Thai AirAsia X cleared for lift-off in Bangkok
Sepang, February 5, 2014

AIRASIA X'S Thailand-based associate company this week received the Air Operator's Certificate from the Department of Civil Aviation of Thailand, effectively green-lighting the commencement of operations.


Thai AirAsia X can now begin applying for operating permits and slots on intended international routes, said an AirAsia X press release issued yesterday. Once these are obtained, the company will announce launch dates for commercial operations and its Bangkok hub.


The Don Mueang-based airline will lease two Airbus A330-300s with 377 seats from a subsidiary of AirAsia X for its first year.

Azran Osman-Rani, CEO of AirAsia X, commented: “Thai AirAsia X is expected to offer connecting fly-thru services with Thai AirAsia’s short haul domestic and regional network, offering greater connectivity options from hubs in Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok. The establishment of our Thai hub will see the beginning of AirAsia X’s strategic multi hub plan turn into reality (TTG Asia e-Daily, February 22, 2013).”


Also announced yesterday was the appointment of Nadda Buranasiri as the new CEO of Thai AirAsia X.
