Establishing the airline’s commitment to enhanced connectivity from the southern state of Peninsular Malaysia
SEPANG, 11 July 2014
AirAsia today celebrated two inaugural international flights from its hub in Johor Bahru, now linking the southern region of Peninsular Malaysia to Ho Chi Minh City (4x weekly), Yogyakarta (4x weekly); while flights to Lombok (3x weekly) will begin tomorrow, 12 July.
The commencement of the three latest international routes from Johor Bahru presents the community with more destination choices and great savings, as the latest direct connectivity no longer requires them to connect via Kuala Lumpur to these cities.
AirAsia opened the routes for sale since 15 April 2014 and garnered very positive response from the public.
AirAsia Berhad Head of Commercial, Spencer Lee said, “We are proud to celebrate the two inaugural flights today to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam and Yogyakarta, Indonesia; and one more tomorrow from Senai International Airport in Johor Bahru to Lombok in Indonesia. This signifies our commitment in establishing enhanced connectivity for the people of Johor Bahru, and more international direct flights from Senai International Airport.
“With the great support of Senai International Airport, we look forward to initiate more routes in the future, especially to Indonesia, and provide greater access to our wide network for the benefit of the people of Johor Bahru & the community of Southern Peninsular Malaysia.
AirAsia now has established great connectivity between Johor Bahru and Indonesia with flights to Surabaya (4x weekly) as well, alongside Yogyakarta (4x weekly) and Lombok (3x weekly). The airline also presents the best overall connectivity between Malaysia and Indonesia.
