AirAsia is all set to inaugurate a daily flight from Kuching to Shenzhen, China, over the Christmas holiday.
Special fares are on offer for the flight that starts 26 December, or “Boxing Day”, an official holiday following Christmas celebrations..
The new route marks the third international route from Kuching and the third new route launched from Kuching International Airport, this year, after Pontianak and Langkawi.
