“As a Fortune 500 company headquartered in China and China No. 1’s integrated developer, it is natural that Greenland Group sees the importance of fostering and solidifying ties between China and Malaysia. We believe that together with AirAsia’s direct route to Guangzhou, we can promote Johor Bahru as a major industry leader and hub in tourism, trade and investment,” said General Manager of Greenland Malaysia, Du FuGen at the launch.

Head of Commercial for AirAsia Berhad, Spencer Lee said that the direct flights from Johor Bahru and Guangzhou that was introduced middle last year has helped boost cooperation between both parties especially with ongoing development in Iskandar Malaysia which has presented a demand for air travel between Johor and China.

“Currently, we only have one aircraft that was installed with the new livery but we will always open for more, subject to our partnership with Greenland. The value is about the benefit of the economy and support between both countries, plus opening opportunities to link Johor with more new destinations by end of this year,” Spencer continued.
