KLM, Cebu Pacific, Eva and Garuda Indonesia have made separate announcement involving their flights and routes in and out of Asia.

KLM has just announced a new route to Mauritius to commence October 30th of this year. Ironically this announcement comes a day after AirAsia X released a statement of the discontinuation of their service from Kuala Lumpur to Mauritius due to political pressure from Air Mauritius and locals on the island.

It appears the local officials would rather have tourists from Europe rather than from Asia.

The new flight will have a place of origin in Amsterdam with a departure time of 5:20 pm on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Next year Air Mauritius plans to operate 2 weekly flights that might turn into 3 to Amsterdam from the island.

Cebu Pacific is expanding their domestic market with 2 new routes. Both flights commenced yesterday February 15th out of Manila. The first one is a daily direct flight to Masbate with an associated cost per flight of $38 USD.

The second new route is to Tablas 4 times a week on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and. The cost of a one way ticket on this route is only $49.

EVA Air has announced changes in the flight schedule for their famous Hello Kitty Jet. The special livery jet will only be used on the Taipei to Singapore route every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday effective May 29, 2017.

For passengers that have enjoyed the Hello Kitty Meals, many flights will still offer this on the menu including selected flights from Taipei to Bali, Fukuoka, Guam, Houston, Kansai, Paris, Seoul, Shanghia, Singapore and Tokyo.

Garuda Indonesian has the last daily announcement about their flight from Jakarta to Moscow. This new route is planned to commence in August of 2017 with service 3 times a week.
