AirAsia to Launch Daily Kota Kinabalu - Wuhan Flights

AirAsia has unveiled plans to launch daily flights between Kota Kinabalu and Wuhan, China on 22 January 2016.

AirAsia has a total of 18 direct routes from its Kota Kinabalu hub with the Wuhan route as the latest addition. In 2014 alone, the Kota Kinabalu hub has served over 3.7 million passengers for both domestic and international flights.

Passengers travelling from Kota Kinabalu can also connect to 11 countries via Fly-Thru service as well.

Spencer Lee, Head of Commercial for AirAsia Berhad said, We want to continue putting Malaysia at the forefront of connecting Asean to other parts of Asia. By introducing the BKI - WUH route, we are enabling our passengers to connect to the bustling Central Chinese capital from East Malaysia as well as other countries via our Fly-Thru service. We also believe that the direct flight between Kota Kinabalu and Wuhan will further spur tourism between the two cities, which brings great advantage to the East Malaysia hub, and strengthening both the Friendship Cities.

Wuhan is the capital of the Hubei province in Central China and is the most populous city in the area. Wuhan is a gateway to historical attractions like the Ancient Chibi Battlefield also known as the Red Cliffs; Enshi Grand Canyon; and the Yandi Shennong Mountain, one of the best preserved primeval forest zones in China.

 In Wuhan itself, tourists can enjoy the Yellow Crane Tower, an ancient tower which has been destroyed and rebuilt multiple times but still maintains its old world charm, and the Wuchang lake, which is the largest lake within a city in China.
