FAPA 2010: Announcement 1

1. Travelling to Taipei

The FAPA Congress shall take place from 5th - 8th Nov 2010, ie the program starts on 5th and ends in the evening of 8th Nov.  (http://www.fapa2010-taiwan.com/ )

A suggested travel itinerary would be
a)    5th Nov KL – Taipei, 9th Taipei – KL or
b)   5th Nov KL – Taipei, 11th Taipei – KL
 
The airfare at the time of writing (27th Apr 2020) is as follows:
 
1. AirAsia: RM659 all inclusive of taxes (5th Nov KL - Taipei, 11th Nov Taipei - KL)
2. MAS:  RM3,569 (5th Nov KL - Taipei, 11th Nov Taipei - KL), or RM1,441 if depart a day earlier from KL on 4th KL
 
There is a substantial price difference of RM2,910 (RM3569 - RM659)  if booking is done now with Air Asia, or a difference of RM782 (RM1441 - RM659) for MAS if you were to go one day earlier.
 
Basing on the wide range of prices, the following proposal is put forward for your action:
1.    Those already decided to be going should purchase their own ticket now to take advantage of the low fare from AirAsia or MAS
2.      Those who are undecided may wait for further announcement on group fare but it definitely will not be cheaper than what is available now and could be closer to the higher price option. 
 
Accommodation rates will be announced later once they are finalized by mid-May.
 
Please indicate to us what are your prefer travel dates and airline and whether you have already booked your ticket. The information will be place on the website (but your name will not be mentioned) so that those who are going could also help others to make their decision.
