Among cities identified for direct flights include Shanghai, Shenzhen, Beijing and Chengdu.

After 14 years, AirAsia has resumed its Penang-Hong Kong route.

AirAsia AK2280 touched down at Penang International Airport and was greeted with a water salute.

Dignitaries welcoming the passengers included Deputy Tourism, Arts and Culture Minister Khairul Firdaus Akbar Khan, the then Penang tourism and creative economy committee chairman Yeoh Soon Hin and consul-general of China in Penang Ding Qiao.

“Hong Kong has long been a hub of commerce and innovation. It is also an important gateway to the vast mainland of China,” Yeoh said, adding that his team advertised Penang’s attractions on Hong Kong’s iconic trams to reach people there.

Among cities identified for direct flights are Abu Dhabi and Dubai (UAE), Doha (Qatar), Chennai and Mumbai (India), Shanghai, Shenzhen, Beijing and Chengdu (China), Tokyo (Japan), Seoul (South Korea), Istanbul (Turkiye) and Sydney (Australia).

Initiatives planned under Tourism Malaysia include missions to China’s Tier One and Tier Two cities, cooperation agreements with big tourism players in China and participation in trade and consumer shows in China.
