When AirAsia started their Shenzhen flights in July 2007, they brought something new to Chinese air travel. The airline introduced the concept of low-cost air travel, with initial flights connecting Shenzhen Bao’an International Airport to Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok. Before the end of 2007, Shenzhen – Kota Kinabalu flights were added to the network with the three routes reporting an average load factor over 85%.
