TAAX Mulls Expansion to Tehran, Muscat

Tehran and Muscat are looming large on the radar screen of Thai AirAsia X (TAAX) for its first foray into new markets.
The inauguration of regular services to the two cities by Thailand’s first long-haul low-cost carrier could take place in August, following a planned launch announcement later this month, The Bangkok Post reported.
Industry executives familiar with the issue said TAAX planned to offer four flights a week from its base in Bangkok’s Don Mueang airport to the Iranian capital.
The airline would also operate three flights a week from Bangkok to the Omani capital.
Iran is viewed as one of the few remaining exotic destinations, thus offering TAAX the opportunity to develop traffic, especially among more adventurous Thai travelers, executives said.
Muscat is probably less appealing from the exotic point of view, though it offers the airline the potential to carry more inbound passengers from the Middle East to Thailand.
Thai AirAsia X is a joint venture of Malaysian long haul low-fare airline AirAsia X. It serves Thai AirAsia’s regularly scheduled long haul international flights from Bangkok’s Don Mueang International Airport.
