Extra AirAsia flights during CNY holidays

AirAsia will add extra flights between January 24 to February 5 next year, to cope with overwhelming demand during the upcoming Chinese New Year festivities.

The flights, to all AirAsia destinations, are to originate from Johor Bahru, Kota Kinabalu, Kuching, Penang, Miri and Sibu, an AirAsia press release said.

During the period, AirAsia will operate two flights daily from Johor to Kota Kinabalu, Kuching and Penang - double the usual schedule - while flights from both Sibu and Miri have been increased to one flight a day, from three times a week to Sibu, and four times weekly a week to Miri, from Johor Bahru, AirAsia said.

"We are pleased to announce that our scheduled capacity for flights out of Johor during Chinese New year has been 100 percent sold out since two weeks ago," said AirAsia's executive vice president commercial Kathleen Tan.

"Due to the overwhelming response, we have decided to reroute an additional aircraft to Johor so that we may operate extra flights to cope with the increase demands."
