If you still haven’t taken advantage of the visa-free travel policy for Malaysians travelling to China this year, maybe this latest announcement from Batik Air will inspire you to do so.

The local airline has added a new route to Guilin, its seventh destination in China. “As of today, we operate a total of 23 weekly frequencies to six destinations in China,” Batik Air CEO Datuk Chandran Rama Muthy said in a statement.

The Guilin route will commence on June 4, 2024.

Three weekly B737-800 flights are set to operate every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday from the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (Terminal 1), with return flights from Guilin Liangjiang International Airport (KWL) on the same days.

Chandran says that the route expansion “... is in line with Tourism Malaysia’s 2024 target of attracting between five to seven million Chinese tourists”, and that the airline has plans to not only increase flight frequencies but also add more new destinations in China.

Currently, Batik Air also operates flights from KL to Chengdu, Guangzhou, Haikou, Kunming, Zhangjiajie and Zhengzhou.

Guilin, located in Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region in southern China, is the region’s second largest city. It is renowned for its tranquil and scenic beauty, thanks to its abundance of limestone karst hills and natural wonders.
