SEPANG: AirAsia has added a new route to its Indonesian network.
The Pekan Baru-Singapore route, managed by AirAsia in Indonesia, will be the first to be offered by a local-based airline in the archipelago. Currently, the airline serves two international destinations from Indonesia, which are Malaysia and Thailand, as well as eight domestic routes from Jakarta.
AirAsia group chief executive officer Datuk Seri Tony Fernandes said the latest route was a sign of the airline's confidence in capturing the Asean market.
This new route, supported with the already established Pekan Baru-Kuala Lumpur route, provides enhanced connectivity for Indonesians to the rest of the region.
It is a pleasure for us to provide accessibility and low fares to the people of Pekan Baru and Singapore. We expect our low fares and innovative services to continue to attract guests to fly with us, said Fernandes in a statement on Friday.
