AirAsia increases frequency to Guilin, China
As a result of robust demand, AirAsia is increasing its flight frequency between Kuala Lumpur and Guilin, China, to daily direct flights from 1 May 2009.
The airline launched the Guilin route in July 2008 with four direct weekly flights between Kuala Lumpur’s Low-Cost Terminal and Liangjiang Airport in Guilin. AirAsia remains the only airline from Malaysia to offer direct service between the two cities.
“We are proud of the development of this first direct flight to Guilin. Since its launch in July 2008, AirAsia’s Guilin route has received tremendous response and carried over 51,000 guests. As of now the route has recorded an average load of 75%. The increased frequency will not only complement AirAsia’s aggressive growth in China, but is also stimulating tourism by feeding more traffic to both countries,” said Kathleen Tan, AirAsia regional head of commercial.
