Thai Air Travel Rewards

For property investors that purchase second or holiday homes in Thailand, the growing number of domestic flights offered by budget carriers has made domestic travelling considerably more convenient and affordable in the last few years.

A trip from Bangkok to stay in your villa or apartment on famed tropical islands like Phuket and Samui once involved a 12-hour train or bus journey, but can now be easily accomplished in a short one-hour flight.

Thai Air Asia has become one of the Kingdom’s most popular budget carriers and according to the national press, the airline recently announced plans to introduce a new loyalty scheme for its passengers.

The new scheme is an updated version of a loyalty scheme launched by Air Asia in 2011, and is predicted to increase global loyalty membership from 14 million to 23 million by the end of this year as it aims to strengthen Thai Air Asia’s customer base by providing a clearer picture of which flights members can use to redeem their points.

According to Santisuk Klongchaiya, the commercial director of Air Asia, the programme will offer greater value to customers who want to redeem their points when purchasing Air Asia tickets. A total of 4,500 points can now be used to redeem a flight of less than one hour, and passengers with 30,000 points are also eligible to redeem tickets on longer flights of up to six hours. THB20 (US$0.59) is equivalent to one point, while THB10 (US$0.30) is equivalent to one point when used towards the purchase of a premium ticket.

For property owners on Thailand’d largest island, Phuket, Air Asia offers plenty of connections domestically and from locations across Asia. Travellers can fly direct from Phuket to Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Hong Kong, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore, among other destinations.

Meanwhile, villa owners heading for their properties on Koh Samui increasingly use the airline’s popular Bangkok to SuratThani flight, which connects them to the island by boat from the Thai mainland. Air Asia also offers flights from Kuala Lumpur direct to Surat Thani.
