AIRASIA will revive services between Kuala Lumpur and Solo from December 21 with thrice-weekly flights, more than two months after it suspended the route on September 2.
A recent statement released by the airline said: “Indonesia is a very important market and presents many opportunities for the airline to expand and prosper. The momentary breather on Kuala Lumpur-Solo early this year was part of the realigning process of its business plans in Indonesia, in order to effectively capitalise on the prospects presented by the market.”
The reimplemented service will run on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
Raaj Navaratnaa, general manager of New Asia Holiday Tours & Travel, said: “The flights augur well for Malaysia. We will promote Johor as a new family theme park destination and combine a day trip to Universal Studios Singapore. With direct flights, travellers can see two countries at half the cost.”
Affiliate AirAsia Indonesia also recently announced an increase in flight frequencies to Medan from Penang and Bangkok, effective December 1. Penang-Medan will see one more service per week, bumping frequency to 24 flights weekly, while the number of Bangkok-Medan flights will be increased from four to seven times weekly.
