AirAsia today announced the launch of its newest international route from Sibu, Sarawak’s quaint town to the ‘Lion City’ Singapore. The inaugural flight is set to take off on 16 December 2022, with an initial frequency of 4 times weekly.
Earlier this year, AirAsia launched two back-to-back direct routes connecting Sarawak to Singapore amid popular demand. Both its inaugural Kuching to Singapore and Miri to Singapore flights took off on 29 April 2022.
This new route from Sibu marks the airline’s third direct international route from the state, making AirAsia the carrier with the widest network and largest connectivity in Sarawak.
To celebrate in true AirAsia style, the airline is offering incredible promotional fares for early birds. From now till 27 November 2022, all-in-fares are priced from just RM99 one way for a travel period from 16 December 2022 to 24 March 2023. Simply click on the ‘Flights’ icon on the airasia Super App or website for your purchase and you’d get to explore these destinations for a steal.
Riad Asmat, CEO of AirAsia Malaysia commented: “Serving unique and underserved routes is something AirAsia does well in our mission to stimulate air travel through affordable connectivity.
”We’re thrilled to announce this new route which we are flying for the first time ever, connecting travellers to two immensely popular destinations where we see strong demand for two way travel. AirAsia changed the travel landscape two decades ago, connecting Peninsular Malaysia, Sabah and Sarawak with low, affordable fares, making flying a dream come true for many. Twenty one years later, here we are launching our third international route from Sarawak to Singapore and flying hundreds of thousands of travellers here each year providing a welcome shot in the arm for tourism and the economy in the region. This wouldn’t be possible without the incredible support and cooperation of the Sarawak state government and our tourism and industry partners, as well as our dedicated team at AirAsia.
“This milestone comes at an amazing time for us as exactly two months ago, we resumed operations at Changi Airport’s state-of-the-art Terminal 4 – and now we’re ready to take on more flights! We look forward to working closely with fellow industry players in the near future to make this route a success. I urge bargain hunters to grab this incredible promo price and explore these beautiful cities with us!”
