From next week AirAsia will commence its third daily flight to Macau from the Low Cost Carrier Terminal in Kuala Lumpur.AirAsia is dedicating Airbus A320s for the Kuala Lumpur-Macau route, which has a bigger capacity than Boeing 737s. AirAsia’s Airbus A320 has a capacity of 180 seats, an additional 32 seats compared to its Boeing 737. The airline is currently in the progress of phasing out the Boeing 737 aircraft and replacing them with an all new Airbus A320 fleet.
Kathleen Tan, Executive Vice President - Commercial, AirAsia Berhad, said, “The response towards this route has been phenomenal which has prompted us to add the third frequency to this city of entertainment. With new aircraft being delivered to us every month, it is an obvious choice for us to allocate an Airbus for this route to cope with the demand. In fact, we flew many Malaysians and tourists to Macau to watch the Macau Grand Prix which took place last month.”
“In view of Visit Malaysia Year 2007, we also hope to carry more guests to Kuala Lumpur. Our Macau flights are very popular among tourists connecting from Southern China, Hong Kong and Macau to Kuala Lumpur. It is certainly an apt timing for us to introduce the third flight now.”
