SEPANG: Travellers can now fly directly to Shantou, China, from Kuala Lumpur with AirAsia offering promotional prices from as low as RM88.

The travel period for the one-way, all-in fares promotion will be from March 25 to Feb 5 next year.

The Kuala Lumpur-Shantou route, which is the airline's 14th exclusive route to China from Malaysia, will be serviced four times a week.

The flights will be operated on an Airbus A320 which has a 180-seat capacity.

AirAsia head of commercial Spencer Lee said he was confident that the service would also attract more Chinese tourists to Malaysia following the recent government decision to relax visa policies for them.

Bookings are available online at and mobile apps until Feb 22.
