AirAsia is keen to attract Chinese visitors from Macau

Published on : Wednesday, August 9, 2017

AirAsiaNow visiting Macau has become easier on pockets as AirAsia newly introduced its maiden flight that would carry Indonesian travelers to explore the well-known casinos of this gambling haven on Monday.

 

Nevertheless, that might be a fraction of the story as Indonesia can anticipate witnessing higher number of visitors from mainland China apart from casinos. This new route will boost the international connectivity of Jakarta as the airline only flew from capital cities like Singapore, Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur before.

 
“I hope this route will open up [air connectivity] for foreign visitors, not only for those from Macau, but also from Greater China,” AirAsia Indonesia Group CEO Dendy Kurniawan said during the launch of the route. At the same time AirAsia will fly thrice a week from Macau to Jakarta with an Airbus A320 in August, the number of flights will be increased to four times a week from Sept onward.

 
Now, this newly introduced route connects with its newly-launched services joining Denpasar, Bali to Mumbai, India and Denpasar to Narita, Japan, with its international carrier AirAsia X. Dendy said that business expansion of the airline would contribute the initiation of the government to lure more international tourists from China.

 

This year, government is all set to welcome 2.1 million Chinese tourists from a total of 15 million international tourists. For the last two years, Chinese tourists have topped the list of foreign arrivals boosted by the growth of direct and charter flights crisscrossing between cities like Jakarta and Denpasar.
