AirAsia will resume its operations on domestic services, the gradual restoration of international flights has been well underway, coinciding with the reopening of borders around the world.
With the continued easing of travel restrictions, AirAsia has increased domestic flight capacity by 156 percent since October 2021, and international flight capacity by 50 percent ever since the Malaysian government announced the reopening of borders in April.
The increase in flight capacity was also driven by opening the borders of other countries such as Thailand, the Philippines, Indonesia Cambodia, Singapore, and Vietnam.
“We would like to applaud the governments around the region for their decision to reopen borders, removing travel restrictions with minimal testing requirements, thus making travel easy for everyone. We’re thrilled to be resuming more flights in all of our core markets in Malaysia, Thailand, the Philippines and Indonesia and to be adding additional services to some of AirAsia’s most popular international destinations including Bali, Manila, Bangkok, Ho Chi Minh City, Phuket and more, starting in April. Domestic flying also continues to soar across the group. We have recently launched four new domestic routes in Malaysia from Kuching to Langkawi, Penang to Sibu, Johor Bahru to Bintulu and Kota Kinabalu to Kuala Terengganu this year.Bo Lingam, Group CEO of AirAsia Aviation Group Limited (AAAGL)
AirAsia is committed to providing service while adhering to strict health and safety regulations. AirAsia has successfully migrated 95 percent of its guests to contactless self-check-in via the airasia Super App and its website, an initiative that was made mandatory during the peak of the Covid-19 pandemic last year and will continue to be an integral part of the airline’s effort to strengthen its Covid-19 mitigation plan through contactless operations.
“Finally the world is starting to reopen and thanks to the reopening of Malaysia’s border we can plan to relaunch many new routes from our main hub at klia2. For the reassurance of our guests, safety is always our utmost priority and we continuously strive to provide world-class service quality and a stellar guest experience with a commitment to adhering to stringent safety rules and procedures.”Riad Asmat, CEO of AirAsia Malaysia
