AirAsia goes to Goa

by on September 4, 2015
 

If you’ve ever been to Malacca, the six hundred year old trading port on the Malaysian west coast, which lends its name to the Malacca Straits, you would most likely know that it shares Portuguese links with the Indian West Coast city of Goa.

Many Malaysian families can trace a family history to Goa, including Group CEO of AirAsia, Tan Sri Tony Fernandes. Thus it was with obvious pride that he shared this information with assembled media and guests at a celebration of the new destination launch held in Kuala Lumpur on 3rd September.

He also let slip a few other interesting snippets about this new very affordable destination, including the friendliness of the people, the Portuguese influenced architecture and the beautiful beaches. He also made passing reference to the abundance of cashew nuts and a potent by-product, cashew nut wine!

If you’d like to visit this ‘affordable Bali’ AirAsia is offering promotional base fares starting from RM12* one way (*Malaysian Fees & Taxes RM36.92, Indian Fees & taxes RM14.67) in conjunction with the celebration. These promotional fares are available until 6th September 2015 for travel between 7th September and 30th November 2015, from the AirAsia website, Mobile site or AirAsia’s mobile app on iPhone and Android devices.

The Indian government has recently introduced an online application facility for tourists from 113 countries including Australia and Malaysia. Apply for your e-Tourist Visa on Arrival. The fee is USD 60 +USD2 processing fee.
