A press conference was held last week at the Novotel Suvarnabhumi Airport announcing the continuing tale of their long term relationship between Thai AirAsia and Thailand’s legendary music band ‘Carabao’.
On the day AirAsia presented their newly painted plane, designed to celebrate the Thai legend rock band, Carabao’s 30 year anniversary to the cameras of the press.
The plane is scheduled to fly between AirAsia’s 10 domestic destinations to promote Carabao’s upcoming nationwide concerts.
As part of the celebration, passengers can get collector’s items and redeem a free concert ticket when presenting AirAsia boarding passes to staffs at all 10 airport counters nationwide.

The campaign got underway 8 years ago when Thai AirAsia launched their domestic flights in Thailand and band’s logo were on some of the smaller planes with the slogan ‘Everyone Can Fly’ launched at the same time when the theme song which was beautifully written and sung by the guitarist and backing singer ‘Thierry Mekwattana’ hit the market.
The brand new Airbus A320 plane will promote Carabao’s One Province One Concert (OPOC) 77-provinces tour throughout Thailand. The tour started on April 1 and the last performance will be on December 15 this year.
AirAsia also serves a special dish which is cooked according to another guitarist and backing singer Lek Carabao’s secret mother-in-law recipe-chicken in brown sauce and pepper with rice. The menu has quickly become the best selling dish on board.
Lek delighted the press with the popular menu after photo taking and Q&A session. The whole crowd then got out to the open to see the newly decorated plane. The legends admitted they were amazed as they experienced the specially designed Airbus with their own eyes for the first time.
To celebrate the historic occasion, AirAsia’s 30 year Carabao special offer starts at THB 730 per person and per domestic flight (including tax and fees).
Flights and 3-day & 2-night hotel package deals start from THB 2,330 per person.
