AirAsia to start direct flights from Chiang Mai to Shenzhen in June

AirAsia is expanding its growing Chiang Mai International Airport hub with the airline announcing that it is beginning direct flights to Shenzen, China starting from June 15.

The CNX-SZX flights will run four times weekly although it’s not clear at this stage which days as the flights are not in AirAsia’s booking system at the time of writing. At least one flight will depart Saturday night with the return flight leaving Shenzhen early Sunday morning.

FD592 will leave Chiang Mai at 11:10 p.m. and arrive in Shenzhen at 3 a.m., with the return flight, FD593, leaving Shenzhen at 4 a.m. arriving in Chiang Mai at 6 a.m.

The new Chiang Mai service is in place of an existing Chiang Rai – Shenzhen service which has been reduced from seven flights a week to three flights a week.

The new service is the first new route from AirAsia ex-CNX since it announced flights to Da Nang in April.
