AirAsia X to link Kuala Lumpur and Tianjin
AirAsia has announced a new service, to be operated by AirAsia X, connecting Kuala Lumpur and Tianjin with five weekly flights from 2 April. Tianjin is located 120 km from Beijing and is connected to the Chinese capital via a 30-minute high-speed intercity rail service.
“The Kuala Lumpur–Tianjin route is part of AirAsia’s strategic expansion plan in China and east Asia is in response to strong demands from Malaysia and the greater Asean population as well as in China. Apart from benefitting tourism, the new route will further enhance business and economic ties between the region and China. Despite the gloomy global economy, China remains an important trading and economic partner for Malaysia and the Asean region,” said Azran Osman-Rani, CEO of AirAsia X.
The addition of Kuala Lumpur–Tianjin strengthens AirAsia’s China network that presently includes Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Hangzhou, Guilin, Haikou, Macau and Hong Kong with a total of 145 flights a week. Tianjin takes the airline's capacity into China up to 150 flights a week and is the second city in China to be served by AirAsia X following Hangzhou.
