AirAsia has launched flights between Johor Bahru’s Senai
International Airport and Macao as well as Kolkata, India.
The seven times weekly direct flights from Macao
and five times weekly direct flights from Kolkata are the fourth
and fifth new routes launched by the airline into its Southern
Malaysia hub this year of Johor Bahru.
The airline launched Johor Bahru-Jakarta, Johor Bahru-Kuala
Terengganu and Johor Bahru-Langkawi flights earlier this year.
Spencer Lee, Head of Commercial, AirAsia Berhad
said, “AirAsia 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 – in line with our long term plan to
grow the hub and the state government’s plan of improving direct
AirAsia currently operates 161 weekly flights
one way into Johor Bahru’s Senai International Airport. In
addition to Macao and Kolkata, the airline also flies from Johor
Bahru to Bangkok, Guangzhou, Ho Chi Minh (Saigon), Jakarta, and
Surabaya as well as nine other domestic routes from Johor Bahru to
Kuala Lumpur, Kuala Terengganu, Penang, Langkawi, Kuching, Miri,
Tawau, Sibu, and Kota Kinabalu.
“By 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,”
added Mr. Lee.
