"In our continuous effort to promote Langkawi, we are hoping the connection between Langkawi and Phuket will attract tourists from Phuket to also visit Langkawi. As a result to both efforts, we are anticipating growth in tourist and passenger's arrival into Malaysia," said Chandran.

He noted the airline is constantly innovating and diversifying its products to suit passengers' needs. "The Johor Baru and Guangzhou route complements the network and opens more options to our passengers when planning their trip," Chandran added.
