AirAsia will start daily flights to Shenzhen, China, from July 15 from Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok.

The low-cost carrier announced yesterday that airfares would start from RM68.88 for flights from Kuala Lumpur and 388 baht (about RM38) from Bangkok.

Shenzhen is located in the southern part of Guangdong province and is the fastest growing city in China for the past 30 years.

It is famous for its coastal view, theme parks, historical attractions and world-class golf courses and is known as a shopping paradise.

This is part of the plan in making LCCT as the regional low cost airline hub for Asia region. With the anticipated London-KL route by Airasia X next year, the visitors from Europe can come via Kuala Lumpur and flight out to all top Asia destinations from LCCT. I certainly hope that this plan will work.
