Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Monday, 1 March 2010

AirAsia is to increase it current daily direct flights between Kuala Lumpur and Taipei to nine flights weekly from 15 April 2010.

 To celebrate the additional flights, the low cost airline is offering all-in-fares from RM99 (TWD990) from Kuala Lumpur to Taipei, for bookings from 1 to 5 March 2010 for travel between 15 April and 30 October 2010. Promotional seats are limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis.

 The response has been extremely good for this route and we are running at an average of 80% load factor since its launch on 1st July 2009. The demand for the existing routes made it very clear for the need to introduce additional flights. The mounting of frequency is a testament to AirAsias commitment of making travel accessible and affordable to all. It will also provide both business and leisure travelers with more flexibility and greater choice to connect onto AirAsia and AirAsia Xs extensive route network across ASEAN countries, said Kathleen Tan, Regional Head of Commercial, AirAsia Group. Taiwan has always been a popular destination for holidaymakers due to its shopping and gastronomic paradise. Many Taiwanese are also interested to visit Malaysia and other cities in the region with low fares. Furthermore, with the great timing for our additional flights from Taipei and our vast network across South East Asia, Taiwanese can now conveniently connect to other long haul destinations by AirAsia X such as Australia, UK and India, via Kuala Lumpur as a gateway.
