Significance

“The service between Kuala Lumpur and Hyderabad has a lot of significance considering the large amount of outbound travellers to Malaysia from this region,” said Jasmine Lee Sze Inn, Head (Commercial), Air Asia, addressing a media conference to announce the launch of the ‘low-cost, no frills' airline.

Air Asia currently operates on 132 routes across 70 destinations in Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, China, Taipei, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Australia and United Kingdom, apart from India. It launched its India operations last year and is currently operating in seven cities across the country. Hyderabad would be the eighth followed by New Delhi in early August.

The airline will operate all flights from the country on its low-cost, long-haul affiliate carrier Air Asia X. After the inaugural period, some seats in every flight will be reserved at a base fare of Rs. 3,453, said Ms. Inn.
