KUALA LUMPUR -- Low cost carrier AirAsia Bhd is offering extra flights to various destinations to meet additional travel demands during the forthcoming Chinese New Year holidays.
In a statement here Thursday, the company said these extra flights will be from Feb 9 to 21, and will cater to popular routes including Kuala Lumpur-Penang, Kuala Lumpur-Singapore, Kuala Lumpur-Sibu, Kuala Lumpur-Kuching, Kuching-Sibu, Singapore-Kuching, Kuala Lumpur-Johor Bahru and Johor Bahru-Sibu.
Its regional head of commercial, Kathleen Tan, said this year's Lunar New Year, the year of Tiger, also happened to fall on Valentine's Day so couples would have another excuse to hop on the plane and go on their romantic escapade with low fares.
These extra flights are therefore due to the anticipated high load and strong demand during the festive period, she added.
To add value, AirAsia, under GoHoliday at http://goholiday.airasia.com, has also lined up some great online hotel deals to stretch the dollar where they may choose their holiday lodgings from over 50,000 hotels.
