AirAsia will add more services to Sarawak with three weekly direct flights from Kuching to Kota Bharu, due to start 22 March this year.
It will be AirAsia’s eighth domestic route from Kuching, and AirAsia will be the sole airline to connect Kuching directly to the East Coast of Semenanjung Malaysia.
During last week’s ATF in Kuching, tourism officials said it was imperative that Sarawak gained better airline access and more connectivity to other tourist destinations to make it more convenient for international travellers to visit more than one destination in Malaysia.
The new service should cut travel time and fares between the two tourism regions.
The three weekly direct flights will operate every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday departing Kuching at 0700 and arriving in Kota Bharu at 0855 while flights from Kota Bharu will depart at 0920 and arrive back in Kuching at 1120.
The airline marks the launch with free seats which are available for booking online at www.airasia.com until 2 February.
Passengers will only need to pay for the applicable taxes and fees from RM29 one way. The travel period for these free seats will be 22 March 2014 to 31 January 2015.
