AirAsia is increasing its number of flights to Ho Chi Minh City from its hubs in Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok. Effective from 26 October 2008, flights from Kuala Lumpur will increase from 7 to 11 flights weekly, while Bangkok flights will go daily from 4 to 7 flights weekly.

To celebrate the additional flights AirAsia is offering  promotional fares from just RM49 from Kuala Lumpur to Ho Chi Minh, on bookings before 10 October 2008 for travel between 26 October and 31 July 2009. For flights between Bangkok and Ho Chi Ming the special rate is THB 699 on bookings from 29 September to 10 October 2008, for travel between 26 October and 28 March 2009.

Ho Chi Minh City, formerly known as Saigon, is the economic capital of Vietnam. The largest city in Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh City is a bustling metropolis and industrial centre and a major hub for tourism, commercial and cultural activities.

Kathleen Tan, Regional Head of Commercial, AirAsia, said, The demand for the existing routes made it very clear for the need to introduce additional flights. Kuala Lumpur - Ho Chi Minh was operating with an average load factor of 86% since the launch of the route in April 2008. On the other hand, the Bangkok-Ho Chi Minh route has recorded an average load factor of 90%. We are pleased to be able to unveil the additional flights to cater for the demand.

Aside from the Ho Chi Minh routes, demand for other routes have also encouraged AirAsia to increase flights. AirAsia is increasing flights from Kuala Lumpur to Bintulu, Sarawak (now 11 times weekly), Penang (now 6 daily flights), Bali (now 5 daily flights) and a new destination from Johor Bahru, Malaysia to Bali, Indonesia with three flights weekly.

Passengers can book online the promotional fares from as low as RM6 to Penang, RM20 to Bintulu and RM99 to Denpasar from Kuala Lumpur for the additional flights beginning 26 September to 5 October 2008 for travel between 5 October 2008 to 31 July 2009.

The new destination from Johor Bahru to Bali is being from RM49 beginning 26 September to 5 October 2008 for travel between 5 October 2008 and 28 March 2009.
