Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Tuesday, 14 July 2009

AirAsia is to launch two new flights between Singapore and East Malasyia. The new Singapore - Miri and Singapore - Tawau sectors, which begin 9 September, will help draw more inbound international tourist traffic arriving from Singapore into Sabah and Sarawak.

To celebrate the introduction of the new routes, AirAsia is offering all-in-fare for Tawau- Singapore from RM79 (Sin$42) and Miri- Singapore from RM59 (Sin$32).

 Both promotional fares open for sale from 14 July to 19 July 2009 for travel between 9 September 2009 and 30 April 2010. Promotional seats are limited and available on first-come, first-served basis.

AirAsia’s first connection between East Malaysia and Singapore was from Kota Kinabalu and Kuching, which commenced last November. Other existing routes include Kuala Lumpur - Singapore, Langkawi- Singapore and Penang- Singapore.

Apart from Malaysia, AirAsia currently flies between Singapore and the Indonesian provinces which include Bali (2 daily flights), Jakarta (4 daily flights), Pekanbaru (3 flights weekly), Yogyakarta (1 daily flight) and Bandung (2 daily flights). In addition to that, AirAsia also flies to Bangkok (4 daily flights) and Phuket (1 daily flight) in Thailand.

 AirAsia currently has a total of 406 weekly flights to and from Singapore.

Kathleen Tan, Regional Head of Commercial AirAsia, said “We are proud to open-up new market as these sectors are not served. Students, families and foreign workers can now take advantage of our low fares and renew their social ties more frequently or even indulge in leisure holidays to both countries. There are countless attractions in East Malaysia and Singapore as it entails a wonderful journey of discovery into its culture, heritage and adventure. Our recent initiative to remove the administration fee reiterates AirAsia’s commitment to offer big value so everyone can fly following our move to abolish fuel surcharge last year.”

Miri is the second largest city and the most popular tourist destination in Sarawak. It is famous for its national parks, heritage sites and adventure destinations for the most spellbinding experiences in Sarawak. For instance the Gunung Mulu National Park, is home to the world’s largest cave system, the world’s largest cave passage and the largest natural rock chamber in the world. Miri is also a bustling commercial centre and boasts as the home of Sarawak’s oil industry.

Tawau is located at the northern tip of Sabah Borneo and is the gateway to the world class diving paradise Sipadan Island and many neighboring island resorts. Through Tawau tourists will also gain access to a few oldest virgin forests in the world, for instance Danum Valley, Tabin Wildlife, Maliau Basin, and Tawau Hill Park.
