STANSTED Airport's long haul carrier AirAsia has announced that it is now charging just �350 for premium seats on flights to Kuala Lumpur.

Designed to attract business customers, the move is aimed at helping to cut prices for long distance business travel in the wake of the recent recession.

The offer which runs this week sees �350 premium seats available on London Stansted to Kuala Lumpur flights from August 2009 right through to May 2010.

A spokesman for AirAsia said: "Kuala Lumpur is increasingly seen as Asia's main business hub because it is offering tax incentives to organisations looking to situate themselves in the city.
