Booking flights in Dec Jan 2014 internally with Air Asia

Hello

Just wondering whether it makes any difference in price booking internal flights in Jan 2014 if you book in November or when you are over there! Just asking being xmas time and wondering if it's the same as accommodation.

Thanks Melinda

We booked our Air Asia tickets ages ago (Chiang Rai to Bangkok) and got a very good price. I presume they are like other budget airlines, and the cheaper tickets sell out first. It would depend how crucial it is you are on a flight on a certain day, and how much you are prepared to pay.

If you are sure of your dates book now from here, and I would suggest you look at credit card overseas transaction fees and exchange rate.

In addition to prices tending to increase the later you book, it is quite possible that no seats are left if you postpone buying flights for the December peak season. On many routes Air Asia operates only 1-2 daily flights to keep the load factors high and business profitable. For example, in December Air Asia has a single daily flight to Siem Reap while Bangkok Airways has five daily departures.

Btw. Air Asia operates no internal (domestic) flights inside Cambodia. There are only flights between Thailand and Siem Reap or Phnom Penh. If you want to fly inside Cambodia, you need to use Cambodia Angkor Air.
