Publication Date : 27-12-2012
AirAsia is offering another round of promotional all-in-fare for the Kota Kinabalu-Guangzhou route after tremendous sales when the route was first opened for booking on November 13.
After managing to attract 20,000 bookings, AirAsia is giving avid fliers a Christmas treat with prices starting from 199 ringgit (US$64.87) one way, AirAsia said in a statement yesterday.
The low-cost carrier had just flagged off its maiden flight from Malaysia’s Kota Kinabalu to Guangzhou in China at 8pm on Christmas Day.
The booking period for the promotion is from now until January 2, with the travel period from January 4 to March 31.
This marks the 25th route to China by the AirAsia Group.
“For Sabah, the state received a significant increase of approximately 30 per cent in tourist arrivals from China, including Hong Kong and Macau, from January to August as compared to the same period in 2011.
“With the existing Kota Kinabalu-Shenzhen and Hong Kong routes, AirAsia is confident that the Kota Kinabalu-Guangzhou route will further boost tourism and business activities by carrying more passenger traffic into the state of Sabah,” it added.
