Thai Budget Airline Gets an AOC

Low-cost carrier Thai AirAsia X has received an Air Operator’s Certificate, so the airline can now apply for permission to launch international flights from Bangkok. The airline will lease two Airbus A330-300s from a subsidiary of its parent company, the AirAsia group, for its first year. AirAsia X

A launch date for budget flights from Bangkok has not yet been announced and it might be delayed until the political situation in Thailand settles down.

Azran Osman-Rani, Chief Executive of AirAsia X, said that Thai AirAsia X will offer connecting services with Thai AirAsia’s short-haul domestic and regional network. “The establishment of our Thai hub will see the beginning of AirAsia X’s strategic multi-hub plan turn into reality.”

Along with Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok, AirAsia X is also planning a hub in Bali.
