AirAsia is to launch direct daily flights to Taipei from Kota Kinabalu in East Malaysia. The new route is now open for sale with direct flights daily commencing on 15th January 2010.

 To celebrate the launch, AirAsia is offering all-in-fares between Kota Kinabalu Taipei from RM99 (TW$699). Bookings must be made by 29th November 2009 for travel between 15 January 2010 and 30 October 2010. Promotional seats are limited and available on a first-come. Other terms and conditions apply.

Ms Kathleen Tan, Regional Head of Commercial AirAsia group said, We launched direct flights to Taipei from Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok this year and the response has been amazing. The traveling trend to places such as Taipei is increasing and with growing potential household income in East Malaysia, we believe there will also be strong potential demand from East Malaysian travelers to fly directly to the city. The timing of our inaugural flight in January is great as we can ride on the peak Chinese New Year season both ends.

With the presence of growing Chinese ethnic population in Kota Kinabalu who are willing to spend more on leisure and a growing interest in East Malaysia to explore Orient cities, we feel that this is a strategic move to create interest and stimulate tourism demand in Taipei. Kota Kinabalu famed for its natural wonders and its scenic beauty is equally captivating to Taiwanese. We have studied the growing travel interests from both ends and its a perfect fit with AirAsia as the integral connecting bridge, Ms Tan added.

The new route will be serviced by Airbus A320 aircraft with a 180 passenger capacity. Today, AirAsia and AirAsia X fly direct to Taipei from Kuala Lumpur (1 flight daily), Bangkok (1 flight daily) and Kota Kinabalu (1 flight daily beginning 15th January 2010). Taiwanese visitors to Malaysia must apply for a social visit visa that costs NT$ 240 that is valid for 2 months.
