Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Thursday, 2 April 2009

Abacus has signed an agreement with AirAsia to distribute the airlines fares for its newly launched flights to Tianjin, China with effect from 2 April 2009.

Abacus-connected travel agencies across 25 markets in Asia Pacific will have access to all air bookings between Kuala Lumpur and Tianjin on AirAsia flights.

Mr Ho Hoong Mau, Director of Abacus Airline Distribution Division said, This is a welcome new connection broadening AirAsias reach into this strategic business and cultural area of China.

With many areas in the Asia region still offering opportunities for richer business and cultural links, this move by AirAsia will help to stimulate and sustain the markets interest to travel while at the same time provides travel suppliers with more travel products to sell, Mr Ho added.

Located in Northern China, Tianjin is the sixth largest city in China in terms of urban population and is blessed with a variety of natural and historical attractions including the Huangyaguan Great Wall, which is considered to be a miniature of the Great Wall.

To encourage the market to promote this new route with AirAsia, we will be launching a series of attractive promotional campaigns where Abacus-connected travel agencies will be duly rewarded for bookings made, said Mr Ho.

Abacus has partnered with AirAsia for several other routes in China including flights to Guangzhou, Guilin, Haikou, Hangzhou and Shenzhens.
