SINGAPORE, 31 March 2009 – Banking on the success of its 4 new routes between Indonesia and Singapore, AirAsia is now looking at adding more routes to the island-city in 2009, said its Group CEO Tony Fernandes.

Inaugural flights between Singapore and Indonesian cities of Jakarta, Bandung, Yogyakarta and Bali took off on 24 March 2009, recording forward bookings of 80,000 so far. AirAsia is the only airline flying the Singapore-Bandung route and is the first low-fare airline to service the Singapore-Yogyakarta sector.

AirAsia’s first route between Indonesia and Singapore was from Pekanbaru, which commenced in August last year.

Apart from Indonesia, AirAsia currently flies between Singapore and the Malaysian cities of Kuala Lumpur (7 daily flights), Kuching (1) and Kota Kinabalu (1), as well as Bangkok (4) and Phuket (1) in Thailand. These bring AirAsia’s total number of weekly flights to and from Singapore to 140.

“Singapore is very special to AirAsia and we consider it a virtual hub. AirAsia’s latest Indonesia-Singapore link forms the final piece of our network jigsaw puzzle as it resembles the importance of the AirAsia network, making it the most powerful in Asia. Currently, we have a combined total of 10 routes connecting Singapore and we are looking at introducing at least 3 more new routes this year. Based on our projections, we will carry a total of 2 million guests to and from Singapore in 2009,” said Fernandes.

AirAsia is considering a number of cities to be linked to Singapore and among the destinations in the pipeline are Penang and Langkawi in Malaysia, as well as Medan and Surabaya in Indonesia. AirAsia will also increase the frequencies of some of the existing routes to Singapore this year.

“Given the current economic climate, this positive link between these new services is indeed such an encouraging response. Greater connection to both countries would not only boost economic growth by providing better access to markets but also enhance links within travel, trade and tourism. It is also a perfect match as both hubs, Singapore and Indonesia are able to feed traffic to the cities, connect to other points serviced by AirAsia’s extensive routes and international destinations serviced by AirAsia’s long-haul affiliate, AirAsia X via the Kuala Lumpur hub. This initiative will also help the pace of integration between Indonesia and Singapore in particular, and bridge ASEAN closer by enabling intra-Asean travel with AirAsia’s connectivity and route network via our strategic hubs in Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand,” added Fernandes.

Meanwhile, Mr. Dharmadi, CEO of Indonesia AirAsia commented: “These new routes signify our effort in realizing the open skies policy. Despite the economic uncertainties, Indonesia still recorded the largest number of tourist arrivals to Singapore among Asean countries. This good indication of strong growth will definitely instill integration between Indonesia and Singapore, and to enable intra-Asean travel with AirAsia’s connectivity and route network via our strategic hubs in Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand.”

“Indonesians and Singaporeans share a lot of similarities due to historic linkages and family connections between the 2 countries. With our excellent network, the Indonesian masses will benefit from these new services as Singapore’s Changi Airport is a main gateway which connects to not only other international routes which AirAsia flies to, but also to other parts of the world. Singaporeans on the other hand, will have access to more low-cost alternatives to international routes and additional destinations in not only Indonesia but also the rest of Asean,” concluded Mr. Dharmadi

Because that is AK's only International route ex KCH...what you expect leh? I mean if you want to go Australia, you are better off flying to SIN for better connections...better than KUL I dare say...so really kinda expected that they would mount the 2X daily service...not like BKI, we can fly to so many International destinations direct you see...pros and cons I guess...you win some, you lose some...hahaha!

not many players pying the route, therefore I think most of their flights are full and can break even at least. Therefore now increasing capacity. Certainly don't increase the number of airlines plying the same routes, if not we will see another bloodbath..... <_< :rolleyes:

Perhaps they got wind of that comeback possibility and are flooding the market with excess capacity now just to make it less attractive for the intending competitor ? Just a guess :pardon:

I think most of the new routes out of Indonesia will be done first by QZ.

AirAsia gets green light for Davao flights



KOTA KINABALU: The Transport Ministry has approved AirAsia Bhd's application to fly to Davao, Philippines from Nov 1, 2012.


In a statement today, Transport Minister, Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha, said AirAsia would operate seven flights a week using the Airbus A320 from Kota Kinabalu International Airport to Davao.


"The rationale for flying to Davao is to improve the 'connectivity' for the Brunei-Indonesia-Malaysia-Philippines East Asian Growth Area (BIMP-EAGA) and thus boost tourism and economy.


"The flights will also offer an alternative for Malaysians to fly to the Philippines and hence boost the number of passengers handled by the Kota Kinabalu airport," he said.


Kong said the flights would also indirectly increase government revenue.


"Currently, there are no Malaysian airlines flying to Davao. AirAsia is the first to offer the services," he said.


Earlir this year, MASwings, a unit of Malaysia Airlines, which operated only in Sabah and Sarawak, started the flights to four destinations in BIMP-EAGA using ATR aircraft.



The routes are: Kota Kinabalu-Bandar Seri Begawan (twice a day); Kuching-Bandar Seri Begawan (three times a week); Kuching-Pontianak (Indonesia) (once a day); and Tawau-Tarakan, Indonesia (three times a week). -- BERNAMA

Monkey eating? For real?
Scary though......

generally measures 86 to 102 cm (2 ft 10 in to 3 ft 4 in) in length and weighs 4.7 to 8 kilograms (10 to 18 lb). Among the rarest, largest, and most powerful birds in the world, it has been declared the Philippine national bird.
