Malaysia based low cost carrier AirAsia launched new flight services connecting Johor Bahru and Indonesia's two popular destinations Yogyakarta and Lombok in a bid to capture the growing travel demand between the two countries.
The airline would fly four times a week in its Johor Bahru-Yogyakarta route while it would fly three times a week in the Johor Bahru-Lombok route.
"Johor Bahru is one of the most important hubs of AirAsia in Malaysia. We see potential of this city especially in developing the international routes. The launch of the new routes from Johor Bahru is our commitment to continue develop connectivity from and to southern part of Malaysia," AirAsia Malaysia head of commercial Spencer Lee said in a statement made available to The Jakarta Post on Tuesday.
The airline also offered promotion rate Rp 0 for booking period between April 15 and 20 for travel period between July 11, 2014 and April 30, 2015.
Apart from Yogyakarta and Lombok, AirAsia currently flies 15 times a week to Indonesia.
It provides four times a week flight service for its Johor Bahru-Jakarta and Johor Bahru-Bandung routes. For Johor Bahru-Surabaya, it flies seven times a week.
"We are hoping to continue launch new routes in the future as we receive a lot of support from [Johor Bahru]'s Senai International Airport," he added.
