KUALA LUMPUR, April 23 (Bernama) -- AirAsia Bhd is increasing its Macau route frequency from Kuching to daily flights from May 15, 2008 in an effort to enhance the city's international connectivity.
In a statement here today, AirAsia said it was currently serving three flights a week to Macau.
"With a strong average load of 80 percent since its inception, the airline is gearing up for the strong travel demands by locals and visitors alike to and from Kuching for the rest of the year with the increased capacity," it said.
Group chief executive officer, Datuk Tony Fernandes, said Kuching was ready to embrace the global low-cost travel as there was so much tourism potential in Sarawak in terms of cultural diversity.
"We hope to grow the hub further with the support of a low-cost terminal in the state," he said.
AirAsia said it would further enhance its East Coast route connectivity with the start of Kuala Lumpur-Kuantan route on June 1, 2008.
