Malaysian-based low-cost carrier AirAsia Berhad (AirAsia) will open a new direct service connecting Kuala Lumpur to one of Indonesia’s emerging tourist destinations Lombok in October this year, an executive said.

AirAsia commercial director Jasmine Lee said the airline will provide three flights a week: Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.

“Now everyone in Lombok can fly to Kuala Lumpur to enjoy every inch of the Malaysian capital that is also the hub of the AirAsia Group. And for Malaysians, Lombok is a diamond that offers pristine beauty,” Jasmine said
in a statement to The Jakarta Post.

Besides Lombok’s Mount Rinjani and its tropical forest attractions that are suitable for Malaysian tourists who love adventure, its Senggigi beach and Gili islet is a perfect place for honeymooners, she said.

The airline is offering a special fare as low as Rp 299,000 (US$31.39) from Lombok to KL on sale Aug. 16 to 26 for the travel period of Oct. 12, 2012 to May 22, 2013. Lombok became the 15th Indonesian location that is directly connected to the Malaysian capital city.
