AirAsia flies to Sarawak 113 times weekly from 1st Nov 2021, following the easing on limitation of flights into the state due to Covid-19 related Movement Control Orders (MCO) within Malaysia.
To welcome the announcement, AirAsia is offering flights from Kuala Lumpur to Kuching, Miri, Sibu and Bintulu with all-in fares from just RM99 one way. The flights are now available for booking for travel between 1st November 2021 and 31st March 2022. The promo tickets are limited and on the airasia Super App and AirAsia.com by clicking on the ‘Flights’ icon. These promo fares are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Guests with credit accounts may use them to redeem for these flights.
Riad Asmat, CEO of AirAsia Malaysia thanked the Sarawak State Government, the Ministry of Transport Sarawak and the Sarawak Disaster Management Committee for the decision to allow more flights into the state. He said the 113 weekly flights from the Peninsula and Sabah into Sarawak are:
….. more than double the 34 weekly flights we operate from outside of the state into Sarawak presently, and on top of the 76 weekly domestic flights we operate within Sarawak. Riad Asmat
Sarawak is a very important market and strategic hub for AirAsia and the airline looks forward to returning to the pre-Covid levels of 558 weekly flights to, from and within the State. AirAsia has six A320s stationed in their Kuching hub and this positive development encourages scaling up of operations, providing more jobs for Sarawakians.
As part of its strict Covid-19 mitigation plan, only fully-vaccinated guests are accepted onboard AirAsia flights and self check-in via the airasia Super App is mandatory. For added convenience and security, AirAsia will soon be rolling out our FACES facial recognition boarding system starting with klia2 and followed by all other airports including Kuching, Sibu, Miri and Bintulu. FACES will make the entire journey paperless, contactless and fully digital, further minimising physical contact between guests and employees.
