Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Wednesday, 6 August 2008

AirAsia is to launch second direct daily flights from Kuala Lumpur to Hong Kong to meet the increase demand from business and leisure travellers.

Since the launch of AirAsia's first flight on 15th May 2008, the overwhelming demand from travellers has grown not only from holidaymakers but also from those with business ventures in the region.

Commenting on the increased frequency Kathleen Tan, Regional Head of Commercial, AirAsia, said, At a time when some airlines are cutting routes and downsizing capacity, AirAsia is breaking the trend with our expansion plans, adding services where there is proven demand, which there certainly is for the Hong Kong route.

In the current economic climate, corporate organisations are doing all they can to reduce their controllable spending- such as air travel. We are looking at creating demand at the lowest possible fares. Corporate travellers will now have smarter alternative travelling choices to fly low cost and at the same time given choices of pre booking hot meals online, Xpress boarding and other value added services offered via our seamless online booking.

Since the launch of the route 3 months ago, the average monthly load factor has exceeded 85%. This early indication has supported the introduction of the extra service to accommodate growing demand for this currently under-served route. The second daily service will start on 27th August, 2008.

To celebrate the increase in services to Hong Kong, AirAsia is offering promotional fares from RM 88 (HK$ 228) for bookings before 8 August 2008 for the travel period from 27 August 2008 - 30 April 2009. Fare quoted excludes airport taxes, fuel surcharges and fees, and are applicable for one-way travel only etc.
