11-Sep-2012 2:11 PM

AirAsia stated (12-Sep-2012) it is strengthening its route network and connectivity in China, with the carrier opening booking for Kuala Lumpur-Nanning service from 12-Sep-2012. The new route will operate three times weekly from 11-Dec-2012. The sector will be AirAsia Group’s 22nd route to China. AirAsia Group head of commercial Kathleen Tan commented, “China is a great market for us to explore and expand our route network and connectivity. We are seeing a greater demand between both ends especially for business travel.... We are glad to be able to provide the only direct flight from Kuala Lumpur–Nanning and we are confident that flight loads will pick-up once we open this new destination for sale, especially with the importance of Nanning as a city that works closely with the ASEAN countries to promote investment and trade between China and ASEAN.” [more - original PR]
