[photopress:air_air_asia_1_2.jpg,full,alignright]Air Asia will launch flights from Kuala Lumpur to Hainan in May. The low-cost carrier already has four routes linking Kuala Lumpur to China: Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Hangzhou and Macao.
Established in 2001, the Kuala Lumpur-based airline has now carried more than 46 million passengers.
To keep fares low, the airline does not provide free food or beverages on board.
The uniforms of the hostesses raised complaints in the Malay parliament. A Wanita Umno delegate from Kelantan said the uniforms of the female cabin crew of budget airline AirAsia are too short and ‘show too much skin.’
Kubang Kerian delegate Datuk Zaleha Hussin said the uniform was an embarrassment to women.
She called on the Government to compel the carrier to change the uniform of the stewardesses, which she felt was too revealing.
