As the country is currently going through the recovery movement control order (RMCO) and more and more Malaysians are open to travelling domestically, the demand for flights within Malaysia has increased as well. Prompted by this, low-cost airline, AirAsia has recently revealed that the company will be increasing the frequency of flights to several locations in Malaysia.
Chief executive officer Riad Asmat said, as reported by Malay Mail, these locations are the most sought after by Malaysians planning to travel domestically. The routes that will enjoy the increased frequency are Kuala Lumpur to Langkawi, Kuching and Kota Kinabalu, as well as from Johor Baru to Kuching and Penang. He elaborated,
“Since the resumption of our flights post-hibernation mode, we are witnessing encouraging demand for domestic travel. We will continue to monitor demand and hope to gradually increase the frequencies from our other hubs such as Kota Kinabalu, Kuching, and Penang in the near future.”
Riad also mentioned that the airline is taking the fight against Covid-19 seriously. Hence the company has taken various measures such as temperature screenings, limited hand-carry item, face mask usage, end-to-end contactless procedures, proper hygiene standards and inflight medical training for cabin crew.
