AirAsia starts new route to Vietnam

NHA TRANG: AirAsia, Malaysia’s award-winning low-cost carrier, has launched its 54th unique route, Vietnam’s coastal city of Nha Trang.
The maiden flight, with a 93% flight load, landed at around noon (Vietnam time) on Thursday at Cam Ranh International Airport, greeted with a water cannon salute.
The inaugural flight was a milestone for AirAsia, being the first to operate direct flights to Nha Trang from Malaysia.
AirAsia Bhd commercial head Spencer Lee said 2017 has been an eventful year for Asean as it celebrates its 50th anniversary.
Also present were AirAsia director Datuk Fam Lee Ee and Khanh Hoa Department of Tourism vice-director Nguyen Thi Le Thanh.
Nha Trang is the capital of Khanh Hoa which lies along the coastline of south central Viet­nam.
Lee said the daily direct flight from Kuala Lumpur to Nha Trang showed the carrier’s commitment to provide more connecti­vity between the two countries.
AirAsia also flies to other Vietnamese cities including Ho Chi Minh City, Da Nang and Hanoi.
Lee said passengers can use Fly-Thru, an optional baggage check-through service to their final destination without the hassle of immigration clearance at the transit hub.
With Fly-Thru service, passengers from 23 cities in eight countries can travel to Nha Trang seamlessly.
“We are confident that we will keep this route strong,” said Lee.
From now until Sept 24, AirAsia is offering RM99 all-in-fare one way to Nha Trang for travel until Feb 28 next year.
