One no longer need to pay more than RM800 for a return trip to Singapore.
AirAsia yesterday made its inaugural flight to Singapore's Changi Airport carrying 180 passengers including its CEO, Datuk Tony Fernandes, who said that AirAsia will push for more flights on the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore route as well as for services from Kota Kinabalu, Kuching, Langkawi and Penang into the island republic.
AirAsia had been seeking rights to this route for the past six years.
Two other budget carriers – Jetstar and Tiger Airways – also made their maiden flights from Singapore to the KLIA yesterday.
Air Asia flies twice daily on the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore route with fares quoted at RM29.99 or S$13.99 (excluding airport taxes and surcharges) one way.
Tiger and Jetstar will operate one flight each between Singapore and Kuala Lumpur. Tiger uses the LCCT while Jetstar uses the Main Terminal Building.
Tiger is 49% owned by Singapore Airlines while Jetstar is the budget offshoot of Australian carrier Qantas.
