AirAsia has opened sales for a brand new direct route from Kota Kinabalu to the Special Administrative Region (SAR) of Macau and will operate four weekly flights commencing November 2.


Air Asia Malaysia head of Commercial, Spencer Lee, made a statement which recognized Kota Kinabalu as one of the company's largest hubs after Kuala Lumpur. Thus, AirAsia is set for the further expansion of its network to international as well as local cities.

“We recently launched a direct flight from Kota Kinabalu to Bangkok, and we are delighted to connect Sabahan to Macau and the Pearl River Delta,” said Lee.

“With Sabah strategically located in the northern part of Borneo island, we hope to bring the world to Sabah by linking Sabah with Asean, North Asia, Australia and beyond,” he added.

CEO of AirAsia Hong Kong and Macau, Celia Lao, had disclosed earlier this year that the airline was considering the launch of three or four new routes to Macau. There may be a possibility that the company's Airbus A330 may be involved in this operation.

According to Lao, this move is determined largely by the city's economic situation, as well as how AirAsia can further strengthen its connection to the Pearl River Delta.

The new direct route will feature one flight per day, on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday. Additionally, the budget airline is offering special introductory fares from MOP288 until August 19, for flights from November 2 to March 29.
