AirAsia starts first international route from Kuala Terengganu
AirAsia has added another route to Singapore (SIN) this time from Kuala Terengganu (TGG). Thrice-weekly flights on the 455-kilometre route commenced on 22 April using the airline’s 180-seat A320s, and the carrier will not face any direct competition. This is only the airline’s third route from Kuala Terengganu, which is known locally as Sultan Mahmud Airport, and which in recent years has handled around 500,000 passengers annually. AirAsia launched flights to the airport from Kuala Lumpur in November 2002, but the second route, to Miri, was launched only last month.
