Bo Lingam, Group CEO, AirAsia Group Limited, said, “We couldn’t be more thrilled to announce yet another venture of AirAsia from the beautiful Ahmedabad to Kuala Lumpur as we continue to celebrate the commendable initiative by the government for visa free entry into Malaysia for Indian nationals. A city that is steeped in deeply-rooted traditions and heritage, Kuala Lumpur is a world-famous tourist hotspot for adventure seekers, globe trotters and foodies alike.

“When we launched our very first flight into India in 2008, our vision and mission had always been to enhance affordable connectivity between our two nations. Both Malaysia and India have plenty of untapped tourism potential and it’s been amazing to see how travel has boomed in both countries in the last decade. AirAsia will continue to broaden our horizons of connectivity, which undoubtedly will encourage and allow for more people to travel to various unexplored gems of India affordably.”

AirAsia operates a robust network of routes directly from India to Malaysia from both northern and southern cities ‒ Chennai, Tiruchirappalli, Kochi, Hyderabad, Bengaluru and Kolkata via its short-haul airline AirAsia Malaysia (flight code AK) and to New Delhi and Amritsar via medium haul affiliate airline AirAsia X (flight code D7).
