Another new one to add into BKI's collection. Taiwan’s Mandarin Airlines from 25JUN11 begins Taichung – Kota Kinabalu service on board Embraer E190 aircraft. Service operates every 4 days, and only available through local tour packages out of Taiwan. http://airlineroute..../ae-bkikch-s11/

By the sound of it, will be restricted to those from Taiwan coming here on tour packages
Don't think us Malaysians will be able to travel to Taiwan on this

Looks like night stopping here too - still get chance to see those jungle jets in early morning light (very early :) )

Based on 2010's statistics, Dhaka recorded 452,442 passengers movement in KUL, with growth of +33.6%. The traffic is shared between 5 airlines - MH, AK, Biman, United and GMG. It is the 13th busiest destination in KUL ahead of London Heathrow, Phuket, Perth, Amsterdam, Shanghai, Chennai and Tokyo Narita.

I wonder why AK decided to pull out from the route?

O.O....I wonder what makes AK to make such a sudden decision to quit Dhaka??

My uni mates will not be very happy as AK offers the best timing for them. Did Bangladesh Government imposes new taxes on foreign carriers? AK seems to be suffering from 'fits' in South Asia region to some extent. Firstly Hyderabad and Thiruvanthapuram; now Dhaka. In wonder any others are on the chopping block?

Well yes, most likely AK need to realign routes served to concentrate on those that deliver optimal returns, due to capacity constraints at KLIA-LCCT :rolleyes: :D

Dhaka route does make money, but forced to drop to serve even more profitable route. Just like AC gave up India's route for China's route.

As Mentioned Just a confirmation of Lion Air Returning back to KL on the CGK-KUL route.

http://airlineroute..../jt-cgkkul-s11/

Sad news for BKI spotters. Hong Kong Express is also ending schedule charter to service to BKI.

http://airlineroute....hxuo-s11update/

I guess loads weren't really that good.

If it's a chartered flight, then it's different from a scheduled flight.

Thanks for the insight. Perhaps so. I find that making such a drastic decision in a short period of time(well, half a month notice anyway) really portrays a bad image for the airline. I know some may disagree with me, its just my honest opinion. Very potong steam IMO...

At a press conference yesterday (1 July 2011) marking the inauguration of its first flight from Singapore to Taipei, TransAsia Airways' Chairman Vincent Lin mentioned that the airline hopes to extend its network in Southeast Asia to Malaysia.

Another sad news for BKI. Korean Air gone as well, now codesharing with MAS utilizing MAS aircraft. :-(
Not sure whether Easter Jet is still there...

Hope to see more airlines in BKI. TransAsia, CAL, or CZ.
