We’re with AirAsia in welcoming the Malaysian government’s announcement for the resumption of domestic travel starting with a Langkawi domestic travel bubble from 16th September 2021. While full details are yet to be announced, the announcement means eligible travellers can start planning their travel arrangements.
You must also undergo an RT-PCR or RTK-Antigen Covid-19 test 48 hours before your flight. The results must be brought to the airport for inspection prior to departure. You will also have to show proof of fully vaccinated status.
Travellers are required to remain in Langkawi, Malaysia. Travellers must undergo a professional RTK-antigen (RTK-Ag) testing on day three and day five of stay.
Langkawi domestic travel bubble: Who’s eligible?
This move is highly anticipated by travellers, hopefully paving the way for more domestic and international travel resumptions in the near future. In the absence of confirmation, it’s safe to guess that your vaccination status will be important, and interstate travel bans will be relaxed. With rising numbers of fully vaccinated residents, the situation in Malaysia is continuing to improve.
…. Malaysians are eager to start travelling again and Langkawi is by far one of the top domestic destinations, famed for its world-class facilities, pristine beaches, family-friendly atmosphere and local cuisine. The government’s decision to commence this travel bubble bodes well for the recovery of the whole tourism industry in Langkawi, and we look forward to working closely with the government, Langkawi Development Authority (LADA) as well as Tourism Malaysia, to support the revival of the tourism sector.

…. Flying is the safest mode of transportation, not only due to the comprehensive safety measures that we undertake, but the built-in features of the aircraft itself such as its cabin air filtration system and the vertical downward air circulation inside the cabin further prohibit the risk of infection during flying.
