AirAsia, Flying Malaysia!

Underprivileged children from East Malaysia flown to Kuala Lumpur to enjoy colourful celebration of 56th Merdeka Day at Dataran Merdeka
SEPANG, 31 August 2013 – AirAsia continues to bridge the gap and fulfilled the dreams of 56 underprivileged children from East Malaysia to be in Kuala Lumpur and witness the 56th Merdeka Day celebrations up-close in Dataran Merdeka.

The 56 children—symbolic to Malaysia’s 56th Merdeka—come from various homes in Sabah and Sarawak. The participating homes are Rumah Anak Yatim Darul Bakti, Rumah Anak Yatim Tambunan and San Damiano Hostel (Boys & Girls) in Sabah and Kompleks Kewajipan Laila Taib in Sarawak. This was the first experience traveling by plane for a majority of the children.

The children, ranging from 10 – 17 years old, and accompanied by 8 guardians were flown by AirAsia to Kuala Lumpur from Kota Kinabalu on flight AK5113 and Kuching on AK5211. On board both flights, the children were entertained by AirAsia’s multi-talented flight attendants, also known as the AirAsia Fun Team.

Upon arrival in Kuala Lumpur, AirAsia Berhad CEO Aireen Omar was present on the tarmac at the LCC Terminal to receive the children.

AirAsia connects both Peninsular & East Malaysia with 417x weekly flights, and offers the best connectivity within East Malaysia as well.

Dreams are also made possible with the support of Tune Hotels, the sponsor of accommodation in Kuala Lumpur for all the children and Skybus, the sponsor of bus transportation in Kuala Lumpur.
