AirAsia operates a robust network servicing eight and counting routes directly from India to Malaysia in both northern and southern cities ‒ Chennai, Tiruchirappalli, Kochi, Hyderabad, Bengaluru and Kolkata, New Delhi, and Amritsar via its short-haul and medium-haul airlines. Come February 2024, AirAsia will be commencing flights to Kuala Lumpur from another exciting destination ‒ the city of Thiruvananthapuram making it the second direct route to the state of Kerala after Kochi.
The birth story of AirAsia, the World’s Best Low Cost Airline and the aviation arm of Capital A, is an industry legend. It started back in 2001 when Tony Fernandes and Kamarudin Meranun bought an ailing airline with two aircraft and 200 staff and turned it into the largest low-cost carrier in Asia and home to thousands of AirAsia ‘Allstars’ around the globe. In the last two decades, the airline has gone on to carry close to a billion passengers to over 130 destinations in 23 countries within its network. With the mission to serve the underserved, AirAsia has connected people and places, and has largely been credited for democratising air travel in the region with its famous tagline ‘Now Everyone Can Fly’.
