Mr. Santisuk Klongchaiya, Chief Executive Officer of AirAsia Thailand, who arrived on the inaugural flight from Kaohsiung, remarked: “The city of Kaohsiung is a key destination with attractions for both art and spiritual travelers. The destination is a charming and unique place that is easy to navigate with many convenient facilities including its high speed train service. It took a lot of hard work for AirAsia to finally inteoduce Don Mueang-Kaohsiung and we are confident it will become a popular new destination for Thai tourists while also bringing in visitors to the Kingdom.”l
