Days ago,Regional Head of Commercial for AirAsia Group,Kathleen Tan implied in her Weibo saying ‘Hello Shanghai,I’m coming’ and in today’s official Weibo of AirAsia,it confirms the new route as well as the discounted price structure.
The promotion sales will start from midnight today and the lowest return tickets are only RMB951/RM467/USD153 per pax including all taxes and other charges for travelling from 19 February 2013 to 30 September 2013.
AirAsia X,the long-haul service under AirAsia Group,has flied to 12 cities in China.According to the latest talk from Tony Fernandes,the founder and group CEO of AirAsia,he will keep focusing on ASEAN coutries as they have great foundation of population as well as great potentials.China is one of the most active counties in this region and tons of opportunities are over there.Thus,AirAsia X will be looking for more destinations in China in the near future,benefiting from the boosts of the economy.
Honestly,I’ve waited for the day coming for years.Because my hometown is in Shanghai and so I have to be back there several times every year.Previously,in order to cut the cost,I always took AirAsia X flights to Hangzhou and then transit to Shanghai by other vehicles.It had to spend twice of the time and it’s really exhausting.Well,that day ends now.
AirAsia has talked to get a landing pass to the capital of China,Beijing,for long time,finally it will come true.AirAsia recently annouced that the new route to Beijing will get into business and the first flight will be on 22 June 2012.To celebrate the great move,AirAsia offers a great discount for the airfare to Beijing.Here are the details:
From 22 June 2012 to 5 August 2012,AirAsia’s long haul service-AirAsia X will fly 4 times a week and it will increase to 7 times a week from 6 August 2012.
From the latest conversation with Mr. Azran Osman-CEO of AirAsia X,the direct flight to Shanghai by AirAsia X is also under negotiation with Chinese government.I just hope that could be done asap.
Every year,AirAsia opens up several big sales to promote the routes.People always wants to fly as well as getting some bargains and so the big sales are really quite attractive.
The latest big sales are on.The booking period is from 16 May 2012 to 20 May 2012 and it’s for travels from 4 January 2013 to 22 May 2013.
AirAsia’s long haul service-AirAsia X holds the big sales for the same period of travelling.
I think the low-fare tickets will run out very fast as the travel period covers Chinese new year and International Labor Day when many people have holidays.Try your luck if you still want to have an economical but remarkable trip!
