Flights to China from Malaysia have returned, and AirAsia Malaysia (AK) has announced its objectives for the nation.
With a total of 10 flights per week between its two hubs in Kuala Lumpur and Kota Kinabalu and four China destinations (Macao S.A.R, Shenzhen, Guangzhou, and Kunming) the well-known low-cost carrier will resume operations. In March, it hopes to boost the frequency to as many as 27 flights per week.
On February 10, 2023, Guangzhou saw the return of its first flight to/from China, with high load factors both ways.
Starting on March 1, 2023, AirAsia X Malaysia (D7) will resume service to Kuala Lumpur’s short-haul connections with 10 flights per week to Shanghai, Hangzhou, and Chengdu.
While AirAsia X Malaysia uses Airbus A330s with flatbed seats in its premium cabin, AirAsia Malaysia uses Airbus A320s for its flight operations.
