Pattaya officials welcomed executives from Thai AirAsia, which has made Pattaya the center of the low-cost airline’s latest expansion plan, serving an increasing number of routes from U-Tapao-Rayong-Pattaya Airport.
As part of the budget carrier’s “AirAsia Loves Pattaya” initiative, the Thai subsidiary of Malaysia’s AirAsia Bhd., has launched six domestic and international flights to Udon Thani, Macau, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, and the southern Chinese cities of Nanying and Nanchang.

The kickoff has been spectacularly successful, due in part to Thai AirAsia’s incredibly low rates.
TAA is also supporting the U-Tapao to become a full commercial flight center, boosting tourism in eastern Thailand.
Deputy Mayor Ronakit Ekasingh said Pattaya residents are pleased to discover that they have a convenient airport that is just a short distance from their doorsteps.
The launch of the new routes will be even more convenient to air travelers and will benefit Pattaya as well.
Moreover, Thai AirAsia is also offering deals during its launch promotion for travel between Nov. 27 and Oct. 29 next year.
