High travel demand on some routes has led AirAsia to make changes to cope with increased passenger numbers in upcoming peak periods. These increased traffic needs are being met with changes in three main areas.

High holiday demand – upgraded aircraft

AirAsia will deploy Airbus A330 aircraft on the Maldives and Macao routes for one month between 19th April and 18th May 2017. In addition, passengers to these two destinations can enjoy promotional fares, available until 23rd April 2017 for travel during that period.

All-in, one-way fares directly to Maldives are now on sale from MYR 169 and to Macao starting from MYR 129. If you prefer a little more comfort, the Premium Flatbeds from Kuala Lumpur to both Macao and Maldives start from MRY 599. This fare includes extras such as meals and a 40kg baggage allowance.

Bookings can also be made using the AirAsia mobile app on iPhones and Android devices to enjoy the special promotional fares.

*** Promotional all-in fares quoted are for one-way travel, inclusive of taxes. Terms and conditions apply.

Additional flight frequencies

Six popular destinations will see additional flights out of Kuala Lumpur.

… we are also pleased to increase our connectivity further with additional flight frequencies to various destinations such as Kaohsiung, Siem Reap, Da Nang, Hanoi, Pontianak and Semarang, providing more flight options for guests travelling on AirAsia flights. Spencer Lee, Head of Commercial, AirAsia
