AirAsia is to increase its Kuala Lumpur–Taiwan frequency to nine flights weekly from 15 April.
Following the route’s successful launch last year, AirAsia continued to boost its international connectivity to Taipei by launching more new destinations from its hubs which include Kota Kinabalu (direct daily flights) as well as the Thai city of Bangkok (direct daily flights). These bring AirAsia’s total number of weekly flights to and from Taipei to 23.
Kathleen Tan, regional head of commercial, AirAsia Group, noted, “The response has been extremely good for this route and we are running at an average of 80% load factor since its launch on 1 July 2009. The demand for the existing routes made it very clear for the need to introduce additional flights. The mounting frequency is a testament to AirAsia’s commitment of making travel accessible and affordable to all. It will also provide both business and leisure travellers with more flexibility and greater choice to connect onto AirAsia and AirAsia X’s extensive route network across ASEAN countries.”
