AirAsia is continuing its expansion in China with the launch of flights to Kunming, capital of the southern province of Yunnan.
The new route from Kuala Lumpur will operate four times a week (Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays) from 10 December 2012, using an all-economy, 180-seat Airbus A320 aircraft. Bookings for the new flights start tomorrow (23 October).
“The addition of the Kuala Lumpur–Kunming route enables us to further strengthen our route network into China as we now have a total of 24 routes from Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Kota Kinabalu, Bangkok, Phuket, Chiang Mai and Clark operating flights into 13 cities in China,” said AirAsia’s Malaysia-based CEO, Aireen Omar.
The entry into Kunming follows the recent announcement of AirAsia flights from Bangkok to Wuhan and Xi’an, as well as from KL to Nanning. The airline now offers 24 destinations in China.
