Kathleen Tan, Regional Head of Commercial, AirAsia
said, “We had always known that the Kuala Lumpur - Chennai route
will perform exceedingly well. Chennai in Southern India is a
highly popular and desired destination amongst the Hindus in
Malaysia. Meanwhile travelers from Chennai are increasingly using
Kuala Lumpur as a connecting gateway to over 130 routes in ASEAN
and beyond. In fact within the first few months of flying to
Chennai, we have consistently enjoyed strong load factor on this
route. We feel that it is timely to add a 2nd frequency and this
is certainly a reinforcement of our growing interest in the Indian
market. Through our extensive network in Asia, AirAsia continues
to offer cost effective direct point to point travel to Kuala
Lumpur and beyond. Since Chennai is strategically situated and is
also close to other tourist destinations, travelers can also fly
to many other cities in India.”
