Malaysia-based low cost carrier AirAsia has opened a one-stop travel and service center (ATSC) in Yangon.
The office is located in La Pyae Wun Plaza on Alanpya Pagoda road in Yangon.
Tassapon Bijleveld, CEO of Thai Air Asia, said, “In markets like Myanmar where credit cards are not as widely used, it is important for us to provide facilities to suit the needs of our consumers which is why we have the centre.”
The new office will be open from 9am-5pm from Monday through Friday and from 9am- 2pm on Saturdays.
“We are very excited to be able to offer a more spacious service facility to our passengers in Yangon. The new location is centrally located and equipped with more staff in order to provide more convenience for Air Asia travelers,” Tassapon added.
Services offered at the new centre include ticket booking, travel insurance, and adding on items such as baggage weight and pre-booked meals.
On this occasion, the airline offered promotional fares from Yangon to Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur starting from $30 per way at the centre until 25 March.
Air Asia currently offers daily flights from Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur to Yangon as well as daily direct flights from Mandalay to Bangkok.
