Thai AirAsia (TAA) will inaugurate daily service on the Bangkok-Trang route, joining the fray in a segment that its two rival budget carriers, Nok Air and Orient Thai Airlines, have been flying for years.

The southern province on the Andaman Sea coast will become TAA’s 11th port of call in the kingdom as the no-frills carrier continues to expand its home network and boost connectivity with its growing A320 jet fleet.

Both Nok Air and Orient Thai’s now-defunct One-Two-Go Airlines have regularly flown from Trang with two flights a day and one daily flight, respectively.

For the past few years the airline has focused on increasing inter-provincial connectivity with routes such as Phuket-Udon Thani, Phuket-Ubon Ratchathani, Chiang Mai-Ubon Ratchathani and Phuket-Bali.
