This new direct flight will further complement AirAsia’s extensive connectivity from East Malaysia to Peninsular Malaysia, with flights every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, and will be the sole airline to operate this route in the country.
Kenny Wong, Head of Commercial, AirAsia Berhad commented, “There is an increasing trend in those travelling to Kota Bharu from Kota Kinabalu, where they connect via our other hubs such as Johor Bahru & Kuala Lumpur. This new 3x weekly direct flight will be a major convenience factor, and enhance both business & leisure travellers’ numbers into each state, and AirAsia is proud to be the only airline connecting East Malaysia directly to the East Coast of Peninsular Malaysia.
“Furthermore, tourists & business travellers from Chinese destinations such as Hong Kong, Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Hangzhou, as well as Taipei who fly into Kota Kinabalu through AirAsia can now connect directly to Kota Bharu to experience the beauty of Perhentian Islands, or even source for the exquisite batik that are produced in Kelantan,” added Kenny.
Sabahans and those who need to connect via Kota Kinabalu can easily reach the north of Peninsular Malaysia with direct flights to Penang; or to the south with direct flights to Johor Bahru; and now the East Coast of Peninsular with this new direct flight to Kota Bharu.
AirAsia connects both East Malaysia and Peninsular with 417x weekly flights, and offers the best connectivity within East Malaysia as well.
