AIRASIA will raise the frequency of its Kuala Lumpur–Yangon services from daily to twice per day, starting October 8.
The additional frequency will depart Kuala Lumpur at 06.55 and arrive in Yangon at 08.00. The return sector will take off from Yangon at 08.30 and land in Kuala Lumpur at 12.50.
Ace Altair Travels managing director, Antony Leopold, said the flight timing for the additional frequency would be a great incentive for travellers wanting to arrive in Yangon early, so that they have more time to spare at the destination.
He added: “Yangon is also a new and emerging market that has just opened up. It is a good (source) market to tap as many passengers will be travelling outbound for the first time. We will work with our partners in Yangon to promote leisure group travel to Malaysia.”
AirAsia first started Kuala Lumpur–Yangon flights on July 20, 2010. The existing service departs Kuala Lumpur at 17.10 and arrives in Yangon at 18.20. The return leg leaves Yangon at 18.50 and reaches Kuala Lumpur at 23.05.
