Initially planned as a modest breaking of fast among staff of YOU Wings Airways, the buka puasa event turned out to be an evening of good food, awesome entertainment and even better company.
On the guest list, apart from all staff from the headquarters of YOU Wings Airways in Ipoh, were those who are active in the tourism industry of Perak, including representatives from the various state tourism agencies, airport authorities as well as corporate partners in the hospitality, medical and travel industries. Last but not least, supporters and friends.
Chief Executive Officer of YOU Wings Airways Sdn. Bhd. Daniel Lee in his opening address shared the news that from July to October, the company will be operating two flights monthly to Medan from Ipoh. From November onwards, the number of flights will increase to twice weekly.
Today, 16th July, will see the first flight according to this newly revamped schedule, after a break of one month to readjust to the needs of the market. The flight will see more than 80 passengers flying in from Medan later today.
Daniel is also upbeat about opening new flights to Ipoh this November for Indonesian cities, namely Bandar Acheh, Pekan Baru, Padang and Jakarta, through Medan as a transit point.
Believing that Ipoh too can be one of the best medical tourism destinations in the country, Daniel said that by using Boeing 737-300, the plane is spacious enough to serve as an air ambulance for patients on stretchers.
YOU Wings Airways Sdn. Bhd., which was recently recognised by the Department of Civil Aviation Malaysia as a full-fledged airline company, already has plans to offer direct flights between Ipoh to cities in China, Thailand and Cambodia.
However, for in-depth information, we will have to wait for an official announcement in the near future. For the time being, let us enjoy direct flights from Ipoh and Kuala Terengganu in Malaysia to Medan, Indonesia. On 27th August, a third route will be opened, which will be from Alor Setar to Medan.
The event also saw the hard work of employees being recognised with the presentation of awards, from Best Attendance Award to Best Newcomer Award and Best Improvement Award, among others.
