Asia’s low-cost carrier, AirAsia, has launched direct flights between Kota Kinabalu in East Malaysia and Taiwan’s capital, Taipei, from as little as £280 return.
This new daily service will make it even easier for British travellers to twin a holiday in Taiwan with one in Malaysia.
AirAsia’s new route will be operated by the airline’s new 180-passenger Airbus A320 aircraft. Flights departing from Kota Kinabalu will depart daily at 06.00 and will arrive in Taipei at 09.20; while flights out of Taipei will leave at 09.50 and are scheduled to land at Kota Kinabalu at 13.10.
These new flights follow hot on the heels of the launch of AirAsia’s first route connecting Taipei and Kuala Lumpur, which launched in July 2009. To date, AirAsia and AirAsiaX now fly direct to Taipei every day from Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok and Kota Kinabalu.
