GEORGE TOWN: China Southern Airlines (CSA) has announced that it will increase the frequency of its direct flight from Guangzhou to Penang, to cater to the overwhelming demand of tourists in both countries.
CSA Penang general manager Liu Zhen Hua said that the flight frequency from Guangzhou, which is currently at one trip daily, would be doubled to two flights daily.
“CSA is delighted to add on more flight trips to meet the demands from the tourists.
“CSA will also continue to offer pleasant services to our guests, and we hope the additional flight trips will ensure smoother journey,” he told a press conference at the Penang International Airport (PIA) here Friday.
Also present was state Tourism Development and Heritage, Culture and Arts Committee chairman Yeoh Soon Hin.
In conjunction with the latest announcement, Liu said that CSA would offer a return ticket priced at RM800.
“The original price is more than RM1,000, but only for the month of June, we are offering it at discounted price to those who want to travel to Guangzhou,” he said.
Interested parties may purchase the tickets at its website at http://global.csair.com or at its Penang office located at Menara HBL, Jalan Sultan Ahmad Shah here.
CSA has been flying from Guangzhou to Penang in April 1991, about 27 years ago.
