Airline CEO Tony Fernandes was among the VIPs celebrating the launch of AirAsia’s new service from Langkawi to Guangzhou on 24 January.
- AirAsia has added three new international routes during the last week from three different airports in Malaysia. None of the routes face direct competition. Wuhan (WUH) in China is a new destination for the carrier, while Guangzhou (CAN) in China and Ho Chi Minh City (SGN) in Vietnam are now served from three different airports on the LCC’s network. Wuhan becomes AirAsia’s 75th and newest destination (though it is already served by Thai AirAsia). It is also the LCC’s ninth destination in China, joining Changsha, Chongqing, Guangzhou, Guilin, Hangzhou, Kunming, Nanning and Shenzhen. AirAsia now serves 16 destinations from Kota Kinabalu (BKI), nine from Penang (PEN) and four from Langkawi (LGK). See how Langkawi Airport’s FTWA compares to others from around the world.
