Kuching-Macau flight for RM39.99 by AirAsia

Budget airline AirAsia is offering a four-month promotional fare of RM39.99 for its Kuching-Macau flight, which will be launched on Nov 15.

The fare excludes airport taxes, fuel surcharges and fees, and is for one-way travel.

The thrice-weekly flight is AirAsia’s first international connection from Sarawak.

AirAsia Kuching station manager Shanmugamnathan Suppiah said as Macau was an important gateway to Hong Kong and southern China, the direct service would boost the state's tourism.

“The Macau route is highly popular among tourists connecting from southern China, Hong Kong and Macau to Kuala Lumpur,” he told reporters at the Sarawak Tourism Board (STB) office in Bangunan Yayasan Sarawak here.

He said AirAsia would consider mounting daily flights if there was good demand from travellers.

STB chief executive officer Gracie Geikie urged local tour operators and hoteliers to come up with special packages to attract expatriates from Macau, and Chinese nationals in the mainland and Hong Kong to spend their holidays in Sarawak.

“ We will meet travel agents and tour operators in Macau, Hong Kong and China to promote the Kuching-Macau service,” she added.

Geikie said the direct flight would reduce travel costs and time for those travelling to Sarawak via Macau and vice-versa.

She also hoped AirAsia would introduce direct flights from Sarawak to other popular destinations like Bangkok.
