Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Wednesday, 26 August 2009

AirAsia is to launch flights between Kuala Lumpur and Chengdu, China. The flights, which will commence on 20 October 2009 with four direct flights per week, will be operated by AirAsia X, the low cost long-haul airline affiliate of AirAsia.

To celebrate the launch, promotional fares of just RM129 (CNY338) one-way are being offered until 30th August 2009, for travel between 20 October 2009 and 31st July 2010.

Ms. Kathleen Tan, Regional Head of Commercial of AirAsia said, Our China network has remained incomplete without a presence capable of unlocking the potential of travel to the western territories of China. It is in this essence that Chengdu, capital city to Sichuan province in China with its strategic location, emerged as the natural point of unlocking the Western catchments areas and thus completing our China route integration. With Chengdu now added on to our network, AirAsia can now boast that we have mainland China covered with 160 weekly flights.

The Kuala Lumpur - Chengdu route will be serviced with two-class Airbus A330- 300 aircraft.
