By Azlan Othman

Air Asia lives up to its promise of strengthening flight connectivity within Asean by adding Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam under its staple of cities. And once again proving that it is a leading low-fare airline, AirAsia is making it affordable for everyone to fly to Hanoi.

Beginning October 4, 2006, Asia's largest low-fare airline will commence daily flights to the land where Asian charm meets old French heritage.

AirAsia's special promotional fare for this new service is RM49.99/US$15 one-way for flights between October 4, 2006 and March 24, 2007. The booking period to enjoy this special fare is open only for four precious days from Aug 27 to Aug 30, 2006. Members of the public are therefore encouraged to book early. All fares quoted exclude airport taxes, fuel surcharges and fees, and are applicable for one-way travel only.

"It has always been our vision to fly to Vietnam, particularly Hanoi, which is a quaint, romantic city with warm, friendly locals and delectable Vietnamese cuisine, " said Kathleen Tan, AirAsia's Executive Vice President - Commercial.

Thai AirAsia, AirAsia's sister company is currently serving Hanoi flights from Bangkok. And with AirAsia introducing direct flights from Kuala Lumpur, guests will enjoy a convenient alternative to fly to Hanoi. AirAsia will operate seven flights daily to Hanoi from October 4, 2006.
