Last time I went to Thailand, I had to fly through Kuala Lumpur. Not that there were no direct flights available at that time. It just so happen I had an AirAsia KL ticket at that time but wanted to travel to Thailand instead. If there was a Thailand flight then, I would have rebooked directly. Good thing AirAsia Philippines recently launched its direct flight to Bangkok from Manila. Now truly establishing as the only airline group that fly direct to all ten ASEAN countries.

“We want to bring people across the Asean region closer together and further expand our Asean footprint to serve more and more communities. We have 100% load for this inaugural flight and we hope to do more inter-Asean routes to serve every Filipino traveler needs and enable them to connect, do business and build socio-economic ties with neighboring economies,” Comendador said.
