AirAsia’s maiden flight from Kuching to Macau

SEPANG: AirAsia, the highly acclaimed award-winning airline, will soon commence its first international route to Macau from its Kuching hub and prove that the “Best Low Cost Airline in Asia” (Skytrax, 2007) continues to revolutionise air travel since introducing its low fare, no frills concept in December 2001.

The maiden flight from Kuching will take off on November 15, followed with three weekly flights on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. Kuching will be the leading and largest low-cost carrier’s fifth hub for direct flight to Macau.

AirAsia made history when it launched its maiden service to Macau from its hub in Kuala Lumpur on December 15, 2004 and was the first low-fare airline to do so.

Currently, the Kuching hub serves seven routes, flying to Penang, Kuala Lumpur, Johor Bahru, Kota Kinabalu, Miri, Bintulu and Sibu. Thus, the inclusion of its international network to Macau will not only allow wider connectivity between the fourth largest city in Malaysia and the gateway to Hong Kong and Southern China, but also to other extensive networks which AirAsia operates from.
