Leading low-cost airline AirAsia has unveiled its 2016 Travel Report, which reveals the airline has carried more than 57 million people this year across its network and names the top destinations for travellers, including most popular searched destinations by its guests.
The Top 10 City Destinations for 2016 were Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Singapore, Penang, Manila, Hong Kong, Taipei, Sydney, Melbourne and Kota Kinabalu.
Kuala Lumpur also topped the Most Visited Destinations list followed by Phuket and Bangkok, and then, Singapore.
AirAsia X Chief Commercial Head Arik De said that the report revealed some interesting hot spots including up and coming destinations like Taipei, Kota Kinabalu, Tokyo and Cebu.
“The report not only reveals our most popular network destinations but also some insight into traveller types and their preferred destinations, including adventure seekers choosing Taiwan as a place they like to visit,” Mr De said.
“It was no surprise Phuket being named the most popular beach destination, followed by Langkawi and Bali.
“However, it’s not just destinations that were of interest. We are able to reveal that the top three inflight food choices were Bukhara Chicken Briyani, Uncle Chin’s Chicken Rice and Pak Nasser’s Nasi Lemak.”
