In a statement on Tuesday, AirAsia Bhd said the Airbus A330 would fly directly to both destinations from Wednesday (April 19) until May 18, 2017.
Bookings can be made until April 23.
Head of commercial Spencer Lee said the promotion to increase the capacity by deploying its Airbus A330 for one month was to improve the travel options for guests heading to these two destinations.
“This Airbus A330 will provide an increase of 197 seats per flight. We urge guests to use this opportunity and grab the hot deals.
“We are also pleased to increase our connectivity with additional flight frequencies to various destinations such as Kaohsiung, Siem Reap, Da Nang, Hanoi, Pontianak and Semarang,” he added.
AirAsia would gradually increase its flight frequency from Kuala Lumpur to Kaohsiung (seven times weekly), Siem Reap (14 times weekly), Da Nang (10 times weekly), Hanoi (11 times weekly), Pontianak (seven times weekly) and Semarang (seven times weekly).
AirAsia’s new routes from Kuala Lumpur-Bhubaneswar, Johor Baru-Tawau, Johor Baru-Langkawi and Kuching to Pontianak are also open for sale now. - Bernama
