SEPANG – AirAsia and Fly Asian Xpress’’s (FAX) code-sharing to Mulu was a hit with 1,000 seats sold within 24 hours.
The initiative for this route was part of a joint effort by AirAsia and FAX to support the Visit Malaysia Year 2007 (VMY2007) campaign. Both carriers will officially fly this code share route on December 1, 2006.
Dato’ Tony Fernandes, group CEO, AirAsia said, “We reiterate that the East Malaysia market is very important to us as it poses great potential, and with both of our hubs in Kota Kinabalu and Kuching, we believe we can deliver more passengers into the states.”
“In addition to the positive response for this route, we are also introducing another code sharing route with FAX to Lahad Datu via Kota Kinabalu, Sabah commencing December 1, 2006 with fares starting from RM49.99*,” added Dato’ Tony.
