Celebrating its first flight from Jaipur to Kuala Lumpur, AirAsia Malaysia marks a new direct route with a 100% load factor.

SEPANG, MALAYSIA – AirAsia Malaysia is another milestone, welcoming its maiden flight from Jaipur to Kuala Lumpur with full grandeur.

The inaugural flight, with a load factor of 100%,  departed from Jaipur International Airport at 11.40 PM and landed in Kuala Lumpur International Airport (Terminal 2) at 7.05AM local time.  Excited guests onboard flight AK18 were warmly greeted upon arrival by several Allstars who handed out exclusive goodie bags to the delighted travellers.

This route is extra special for AirAsia Malaysia ‒ marking its first venture into the stunning Pink City, world-renowned for its vintage forts dating back to the 16th century as well as the majestic Jal Mahal.

Group CEO of AirAsia Aviation Group, Bo Lingam said: “We’re thrilled that our first ever services for AirAsia Malaysia between Jaipur and Kuala Lumpur route took  flight today and are honoured to be the only airline in Malaysia to offer this direct connectivity.  Jaipur ‒ often known as the ‘Jewel of Rajasthan’ ‒ is an exquisitely-beautiful city with plenty to offer, as is Kuala Lumpur thanks to our world-famous sky-scrappers and cultural melting pot of local delights.

“AirAsia first commenced flights from between India and Malaysia in 2008 with the sole aim of enabling travellers to experience the beauty and wonder of both countries with ease and affordability.  We have since gone on to fly millions of guests between  India and  Malaysia in the last decade and a half.  The inauguration of this route commemorates AirAsia’s steadfast commitment to further expand our network in India, and we look forward to welcoming more visitors to our homeland Malaysia, particularly following the government’s announcement of visa free entry into the country last year.”

AirAsia currently flies directly from Kuala Lumpur to an incredible 13 cities in all of India with 78 flights weekly to Trivandrum, Chennai, Tiruchirappalli, Kochi, Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Kolkata, Jaipur, Bhubaneswar,  (flights to commence on 28 May 2024), Visakhapatnam (flights to commence on 26 April 2024) and Ahmedabad (flights to commence on 1 May 2024). Medium haul affiliate airline AirAsia X Malaysia (flight code D7) also provides two direct routes from Kuala Lumpur to New Delhi and Amritsar with 8 flights weekly.
