  1. Xiamenair, the regional wing of Malaysia Airlines Fuzhou , flies to Fuzhou and is the preferred Malaysian airlines choice especially if you’re traveling with your folks, who may not be too fond of low cost carriers. With meal service, reclining seats and blankets, the full service flight experience is made far more comfortable.
