Thai AirAsia is pursuing rapid growth to China and India as conditions in Thailand’s domestic market have become challenging. Long-haul sister carrier Thai AirAsia X also plans to open a new route in China and is looking at potential new routes to Australia and Europe. About 30% of Thai AirAsia X passengers on its existing routes to Korea and Japan now connect to Thai AirAsia flights within Southeast Asia.
