Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Tuesday, 7 July 2009

AirAsia has confirmed it is to launch flights between the Malaysian Island Penang and the vibrant city of Hong Kong in China.

 This new service, which is scheduled to commence on 31st July 2009, is AirAsia’s 6th international service from Penang after Singapore, Bangkok, Medan, Jakarta, Macau and its 3rd international service from Hong Kong after Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok.

 AirAsia is establishing Penang as its 8th hub after Kuala Lumpur, Johor Bahru, Kota Kinabalu, Bandung, Bali, Jakarta, Bangkok and a ‘virtual hub’ in Singapore.

To celebrate the new sector between Penang and Hong Kong AirAsia is offering an all-in-fare of RM99 to Hong Kong. This promotional one way fare is available for booking between 7 and 12 July 2009 for travel between 31 July 2009 and 30th April 2010.

Kathleen Tan, Regional Head of Commercial AirAsia, said, “We are very proud to establish Penang as a hub and position the city as an affordable travel option. With the inscription of George Town as UNESCO's World Heritage Site, the city will draw more attention to its endless attractions, heritage sites, fast-growing industrial and trading centre thus its air connectivity has to be expanded to cater to the ever increasing traffic demands from the inbound and outbound travelers. Moving forward, we are hoping to introduce new sectors to Shenzhen and Guangzhou from Penang in the future.”
