AirAsia has confirmed plans to launch a new service connecting Kuala Lumpur with Changsha, the capital of China’s Hunan province.

Commencing on 2 October 2015, the new route will operate four times a week, departing KL every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday at 1800 and arriving in Changsha at 2230. The return service will then leave at 2315, getting back into KL at 0345.

All flights will be operated using a 180-seat, all-economy Airbus A320 aircraft.

“China is an important market for AirAsia, and this is a special year as it is the 10th anniversary of AirAsia’s presence in China,” said Spencer Lee, AirAsia’s head of commercial.

“We are excited to introduce this destination to our guests, marking our 10th destination into China for AirAsia Berhad, and our 10th new route of the year. We are committed towards growing our presence there, and to maintain our status quo as the largest international carrier to fly into China by capacity.”

The new route will mark the second service to Changsha for the AirAsia Group, following Thai AirAsia‘s existing flights from Bangkok.

China Southern Airlines will also start operating the Kuala Lumpur-Changsha route in October, with daily A320 flights.
