Santisuk Klongchaiya, CEO of Thai AirAsia, said the airline is developing Chiang Rai as its seventh flight base after bringing a variety of domestic and international routes to the province earlier this year and receiving a warm welcome. Further offering convenience and travel opportunities to Chiang Rai, the airline is continuing to add routes, especially to the strategic market of China.
The airline is confident Chiang Rai-Shenzhen will meet the needs of travellers. The route will begin operating this 30 April 2019 and is aimed at attracting Chinese tourists to stimulate tourism and the economy in Chiang Rai while allowing locals of the province to experience a new take on China.
"Chiang Rai is a very high potential province with its distinct travel, natural and lifestyle offerings. Its global awareness has also been boosted by the rescue at Tham Luang Cave, providing a real opportunity for promotion. Chinese tourists have already shown an increasing interest in Chiang Rai and this new route should only make their travels easier," Mr. Klongchaiya added.
Shenzhen is known for its fairly priced shopping and has a wide selection of clothing, accessories, bags, shoes and even electronics and appliances. A modern city, Shenzhen welcomes travellers with plentiful restaurants and chic cafes ready to be snapped and shared online.
