Philippines’ AirAsia, the country’s newest low cost carrier, just launched its first international flight to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
This new daily route complements Malaysia AirAsia’s existing Kuala Lumpur – Clark-Kuala Lumpur morning flights which have been in operation since 2005.
“The additional frequency to Kuala Lumpur provides yet another link for Filipinos and Malaysians in the areas of business and tourism. But more important, we want to draw tourists from Malaysia to our amazing beaches and natural wonders in Puerto Princesa, Kalibo, Davao and here in Central Luzon. If we are able to draw even a fraction from Malaysia’s 24.5 million tourists, this will impact on our tourist arrival record for 2012, which means more jobs, more food on the table, more opportunities for every Filipino” AirAsia Inc. CEO Maan Hontiveros said.
The newest low cost Filipino carrier will operate the new route with brand new Airbus A320 operated by well-trained and experienced flight and cabin crew.
