As a promotion, AirAsia will give away 51,000 free seats, and will also waive the fuel surcharges. Passengers would need to only bear the airport tax and administration costs for the additional new frequencies.
Air Asia's additional services will commence on 1 December 2008, with the promotion being valid for the booking period 26 September – 3 October 2008, for travel between 1 December and 31 July 2009.

In addition to that, we strongly believe that this will pave the way for more tourism, investments and that both countries will enjoy mutual benefits of feeding the traffic between the hubs. Indeed, we are very delighted to have acquired these additional services thus welcome healthy competition."
