SCANDA Sky Ltd, which offers chartered flight services between Ipoh and Guangzhou, held a ceremony to mark the launch in China.

Among those present were Consul General of Malaysia in Guangzhou Beh Ching Chye and Perak Tourism Committee chairman Tan Kar Hing.

Scanda Sky executive chairman Tengku Faizwa Tengku Razif said they aim to provide a different level of service.

“We have ambassadors to assist passengers as we don’t want them to be stressed during their journey, ” she said in her speech.

Scanda Sky charters flight services from Malaysia Airlines, flying twice weekly from the Sultan Azlan Shah Airport to Guangzhou. The inaugural flight took off on Nov 27.

Sultan of Perak Sultan Nazrin Muizzuddin Shah had launched their website last month.

Tengku Faizwa told those present that Ipoh was among the top nine places to retire in the world.

“It is a small cosy city which is not crowded, with first world healthcare, ecotourism attractions and nice local food. Likewise, I hope more people would come to Guangzhou, ” she added.

Beijing Federation of Industry and Commerce vice-chairman Li Zhiqi said he was happy to be a part of the ceremony.

“It took 45 years for Ipoh to have flights to Guangzhou. I hope there will be more flights from Ipoh to other big cities in China, ” he said.
