is to add one additional frequency to Singapore from its Kuala Lumpur hub. With this new addition, the
low cost airline will have a total of seven daily direct flights from Kuala Lumpur – Singapore
from 1 December 2008.
To celebrate this new frequency, AirAsia is offering
free seats and even waiving the fuel surcharges, so passengers only have
to pay for the taxes and admin fee. The promotion is available for booking
until 28th October 2008 for travel between 1 December 2008 and 31 July 2009.
Kathleen Tan, Regional Head of Commercial AirAsia, said,
"We have been steadily building up our presence in the ‘Lion City’, having only
recently announced four additional frequencies from Kuala Lumpur and new daily flights from Kota Kinabalu and Kuching to Singapore in
October alone. There are robust demands between the two major cities and tourist gateway in the region. Since its inception last February, we
have recorded over 90% load. We are confident that this new additional frequency will do just as well."
the AirAsia group will have a total of 101 flights weekly to Singapore from various points in the region which include 49 flights weekly from
Kuala Lumpur, 7 flights weekly from Kota Kinabalu, 7 flights weekly from Kuching, 7 flights weekly from Phuket, 28 flights weekly from Bangkokand 3 flights weekly from Pekanbaru, Indonesia.
