Thai AirAsia X set for flights to Europe from Bangkok

Thailand is Cambodia's neighbor to the West, and this forum is dedicated to Thai news, stories, reviews, blogs, videos, Thai people and anything else related to the country. A lot of expats have both lived and worked in Cambodia and Thailand, and this area is a place to discuss all aspects of life in Thailand and what's going on there. Most topics are about Bangkok and Pattaya because of their larger populations of expatriates and tourists in those cities, but this is for all things Thai.

BANGKOK, Aug 9 — Thai AirAsia X is set to fly to Europe by the end of this year or early next year, said AirAsia group chief executive officer, Tan Sri Tony Fernandes.

He said the long-haul low-cost airline is applying for approval from the relevant authorities, adding that the flights to Europe will commence from Bangkok.

“Don Mueang International Airport has been very supportive,” he told a press conference here today.

It was reported that AirAsia X plans to use the Airbus A330-900neo aircraft for the flights to Europe, starting with the Kuala Lumpur-London route.

Fernandes said Thai AirAsia is expected to receive the aircraft next week.

The idea that seeing the world is going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.

At least this is ex-BKK, better than flying in the wrong direction to KL first.
No matter how much it rains, the dirt never washes away.
