Avoid traffic congestion on highways and book your seats online now at AirAsia’s website
SEPANG, 29 JANUARY 2013 – As the year of the dragon in the Chinese calendar draws to a close, AirAsia is ushering in the Chinese New Year with additional frequencies on selected routes throughout the upcoming festive season in February.
AirAsia announced extra flights from its hub in Johor Bahru to four destinations (Penang, Kuching, Miri, Sibu) in October last year, as well as from its hub in Kuala Lumpur to five destinations (Sibu, Kuching, Tawau, Bintulu and Penang) in November last year. Extra flights from Penang to Kuching are also available. Seats for all these additional frequencies throughout Chinese New Year celebrations are still available for booking at www.airasia.com. Full flight schedules of the additional frequencies are available online at AirAsia’s website.
Apart from the extra flights above, other domestic routes in Malaysia are also being offered with all-in-fares from as low as RM39 one way, and international routes from as low as RM52 one way for the immediate travel period from today until 22 May 2013. These special fares can be booked from today until 3 February 2013 at www.airasia.com.
“With only two and a half weeks left before Chinese New Year arrives, I am sure many people are making plans to return home to their loved ones, or simply to enjoy the long weekend during the celebration by flying off to a holiday destination. Avoid the crawling traffic on highways by flying with AirAsia and enjoy a hassle-free journey home. We hope the extra flights we are offering will be able to facilitate the demand for travel during Chinese New Year season,” Aireen Omar, Chief Executive Officer of AirAsia Berhad commented.
For those who are looking to travel a little further for Chinese New Year, especially from Kota Kinabalu can hop on AirAsia’s additional frequencies to Taipei and Hong Kong with all-in-fares from as low as RM199 one way at www.airasia.com. Guests can book these flights from today until 3 February for the travel period from now until 22 May 2013. Kota Kinabalu – Taipei flights are now available daily, increased from 4x weekly previously, while Kota Kinabalu – Hong Kong flights will be twice daily, as compared to 10x weekly previously.
Guests are also advised to pre-book sufficient check-in baggage allocation to avoid having excess baggage during check-in, especially during the festive season. Guests can obtain savings when they pre-book value-added services such as check-in baggage allocation, in-flight meals, travel insurance, seat selection and more.
