AirAsia Plans for Kuching connectivity

Jum ke Perth!
AirAsia has announced plans to reopen Kuching as a hub and to relaunch the Kuching-Perth route.

AirAsia Group Chief Executive Officer Tony Fernandes told reporters that this move was part of their strategy to reestablish Kuching as a regional and international air travel hub and Miri as an alternative to Brunei to make domestic and regional travel more accessible and affordable, Borneo Post reported.

Presently, the only direct international flight destination from and to Kuching is Singapore.

He said the move followed the successful launch of its Miri-Singapore route.

Fernandes acknowledged that in the past Kota Kinabalu has received more development but AirAsia is keen to develop Kuching and Miri as well.

He said they were confident that the Kuching-Perth route would receive a good response from the Australian market.

Fernandes also told reporters that the key for developing Kuching as a air travel hub was to have a low-cost terminal as developing new traffic - such as between Kuching and Indonesia - would be crucial for success.

A large part of realising this potential would depend on keeping airport tax and charges low.
