AirAsia Malaysia (AK) on Wednesday celebrated the reintroduction of flights from Malaysia to many key Indian cities, including Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad, Kochi, Kolkata, Tiruchirappalli, and other Indian destinations.
Notably, the airline last week announced its scheduled operation between Malaysia and six Indian destinations will gradually resume in April 2022, while the airline has a plan to resume flights to Thailand from 5 Indian cities effective May 2022.
The announcement was made during a press conference that was graced by the Chargé d’Affaires of the High Commission of India in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Ms C. Sushma, with Bo Lingam, Group CEO of AirAsia Aviation Group Limited (AAAGL) and Riad Asmat, CEO of AirAsia Malaysia.

The Indian High Commission in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, said:
“We welcome the recent re-opening of international borders by the Government of Malaysia from 1 April 2022. The Government of India has also re-opened both its international borders to tourists in October 2021 and its commercial air space from 27 March 2022. With the opening of both countries’ borders, we are confident that two-way traffic will resume smoothly and grow progressively.”
“This is an important step in reconnecting India and Malaysia as people to people connectivity lies at the foundation of this important partnership. AirAsia has been offering low-cost flights to India since 2008, connecting travellers from Kuala Lumpur to multiple destinations in India. We warmly welcome the resumption of direct commercial flights between India and Malaysia after two long years.”
