Spring Airlines, a discount carrier in China with a good safety record, is having another big sale. It starts this Tuesday morning at 10, China time. They have flights to and from Thailand, and to many other destinations in Asia and inside China. I know I will be clicking the very second the sale starts. They offer some sweet rates. These rates are only available on the internet. They have excellent customer service in case you want to call them. Cloud9 Flash Sale August 2016 – Spring Airlines A discounted ticket from Suvarnabhumi to Shanghai (and back)i will probably run about $242 in total, nothing spectacular, but pretty darn good. This price is near the rock-bottom price of merely paying the airport taxes. How you save money is when you fly into a smaller airport with low taxes, and then Spring Air charges a low price for the trip. That is a double reduction in cost. For example, Ibaraki, which is outside of Tokyo, has lower taxes than the venerable Narita Airport, which is also outside the city, but not as far as Ibaraki. No worries--Ibaraki has very nice ground transportation.
