On Wednesday (April 13, 2022), AirAsia announced that AirAsia Malaysia will resume service to key destinations in India. The carrier will restore service from Malaysia to Chennai, Hyderabad, Kochi, Kolkata, Tiruchirappalli among others, and to celebrate the restart, AirAsia Malaysia is now offering a discount of 20 percent on all flights from Malaysia to India until May 1st, 2022. The promotional fares must be booked on the AirAsia Super App and include travel from May 1st, 2022 through March 25, 2023.


At a press conference on Thursday, AirAsia Malaysia’s CEO, Riad Asmat, said,

“Today marks an important milestone for AirAsia as we prepare for a significant resumption of flights to many core destinations in one of our most important markets, India. We have been preparing rigorously to assure all of our guests a safe, seamless and convenient travel experience. With borders being reopened across the region, AirAsia will continue to review and add onto our expanding network to cater for the increasing demand for air travel, including 30 total weekly flights from Malaysia to India launching by the end of May. Furthermore, with a total of 71 weekly flights to be operated by the end of 2022, AirAsia Malaysia will be soon returning to pre-Covid capacity, flying more than 140 weekly services to and from India.


“With the reopening of Malaysia’s international borders and quarantine-free travel both ways on our flights from Malaysia to India, we would like to take this opportunity to welcome back international tourists, as this will provide a significant boost to the nation’s tourism sector and the economy, as we did pre-pandemic. Malaysia has many popular destinations which are all open for business now and which have been historically very popular with the inbound travel market from India including Kuala Lumpur, Melaka, and Ipoh as key favourites.


“Our aircraft engines are revved up and we wish to assure everyone that we remain committed to upholding the highest standards of safety and hygiene at all times. Every AirAsia Allstar on-ground and in the air is fully vaccinated and ready to provide world-class service and the best quality guest experience alongside stringent safety rules and procedures to give our guests total peace of mind.


“While we are extensively prepared to ensure all of our guests can travel safely through the robust safety and health measures that we have put in place including our contactless check-in procedure via airasia Super App, FACES facial recognition and more, we would like to remind our guests to adhere to all SOPs set by the government during their travels.”
