China Southern Airlines has launched a new route to the Malaysian archipelago of Langkawi.
The announcement comes after the airline recently increased its London Heathrow-Guangzhou service to twice daily, meaning passengers can now take advantage of improved connection times to 30 new destinations across its network.
Fares start from £398 return, including all taxes.
Set 30km from North West Malaysia, Langkawi is officially known as Langkawi Permata Kedah (the jewel of Kedah).
“Adding Langkawi to our network allows us to open up the unspoilt and lesser-known islands of South East Asia to the international market, giving those intrepid travellers the chance to discover some new hidden gems” says Nick Newman, Commercial Manager for China Southern Airlines, UK & Ireland.
He continued: “The airline continually strives to make the world more accessible to its passengers, boasting a vast network of 200+ destinations across 40+ countries and regions in the world.”
The 4-star airline currently flies twice daily from London Heathrow Terminal 4.
