Looks like Air Asia is taking a good look at Penang, The newly launch Penang Macau Flight, Tune Hotel in George Town is coming up, and the propose LCCT for Penang. Together with the 2nd placing in the NYTimes 44 places to visit in 2009, It is certainly more good news for the Penang Tourism players. More outbound tours to sell, and hopefully more tourist coming in.
There is to be 4 flights to Penang and 3 Flights to Macau per week according to various news reports. With the lowest price at RM49 for a one way ticket, that is lower than the bus ticket to Genting Highland. Look like Penang and Northern Region “Punters” will have a new destination to go to. :-)
