Air Asia low cost airline… the best way to move in South East Asia

28 August 2009

Air_Asia_new_logoI recently discovered Air Asia and from that moment I always take it when I fly in South East Asia especially on routes between Macau and Hong Kong to Bangkok. But I know that also other countries as Malaysia and Indonesia are very well connected. The service is fantastic, on time and is the cheapest way to move. It is easy to book on line and very cheap especially if you depart from Macau airport (MFM). If you depart from Guangdong I suggest to embark in Macau from where you can reach 4 destinations in Malaysia and Bangkok. From HKG and Guangzhou (CAN) there are fewer destinations and flights and is more expensive.

Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand together with China are the most connected destinations. Visit the website on and check if your favorite destination is available. Book easily on line and then take off with one of the new Airbus 319 that Air Asia has in the fleet for the middle range.

Here are some more news about the company. AirAsia

With a fleet of 72 aircrafts, AirAsia flies to over 61 domestic and international destinations with 108 routes, and operates over 400 flights daily from hubs located in Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia. AirAsia believes in the no-frills, hassle-free, low fare business concept and feels that keeping costs low requires high efficiency in every part of the business. Efficiency creates savings which are then passed on to guests so that affordable air travel can become a reality. Through its philosophy of ‘Now Everyone Can Fly’, AirAsia has sparked a revolution in air travel with more and more people around the region choosing AirAsia as their preferred choice of transport.
