Ready for the longer hauls
BY LISA GOH
KUALA LUMPUR: With AirAsia's success as a low-cost carrier in regional sectors, the Government is now looking at low-cost medium and long-haul flights to China, India and even Europe.
Transport Minister Datuk Seri Chan Kong Choy said Malaysia was ready for longer flights based on its experience in regional operations.
“This can change the aviation landscape,” he said yesterday in an interview.
He said the routes AirAsia is plying would complement those of Malaysia Airlines (MAS) to create a win-win situation.
“There are many destinations that MAS is not flying to. Take China, for example. We have rights for up to 125 flights a week, but are only using 47.
