AirAsia has unveiled its fifth route into Viet Nam, as the low-cost carrier launched its direct flight from Kuala Lumpur to Phu Quoc Island in the southern province of Kien Giang.

The four weekly flights will commence on November 2. Phu Quoc marks AirAsia’s 59th unique route, apart from its existing destinations in Viet Nam namely, HCM City, Da Nang, Ha Noi and Nha Trang from Malaysia.

Speaking after the launching ceremony on Monday, AirAsia head of commercial Spencer Lee said the launch reflects AirAsia’s continued efforts to strengthen the airline’s connectivity within the Asean region.

He also said AirAsia will be offering a special introductory all-in-fares for the new route starting from RM90. The special fare will be available for booking from August 8 to 19 for the travel period from November 2 this year to March 29, 2019.

“We are delighted to be the first airline to launch direct services from Kuala Lumpur to one of Asean’s best-kept secrets, Phu Quoc. As a truly Asean airline, we are committed to enable more people to visit more places in this region.

“Our guests can connect seamlessly to Phu Quoc via Kuala Lumpur from 20 cities in 10 countries, including China, India, Australia, Indonesia, Japan, South Korea, the Philippines, Thailand, Singapore and Malaysia.

“Travelers from any country can also visit Phu Quoc visa-free for up to 30 days, making this paradise more accessible,” he said. — THESTAR/ANN/VNS
