Spencer Lee, Head of Commercial, AirAsia Berhad said, ďAirAsia is pleased to connect more international cities into Johor Bahru and increase the number of existing direct flights to further boost foreign tourist arrivals into the southern state of Malaysia Ė in line with our long term plan to grow the hub and the state governmentís plan of improving direct connectivityĒ.

ďBy adding new international link to the state, we hope to attract more foreign investments into Johor Bahru, subsequently turning the state into a high-value regional tourism destination. Since 2010, AirAsia has flown about 12 million guests in and out of Johor Bahru and this success would not be possible without the continuous support and cooperation from the Johor state government and Senai International Airport. We are very thankful to them and look forward to further strengthen this hub and grow our connectivity into Johor Bahru with their support,Ē added Mr. Lee.
