The resumption of services will initially start with key selected domestic routes, which will increase gradually to include international destinations once the situation improves and governments lift border and travel restrictions.
The flights are already open for booking via the Airasia.com website and mobile application. Passengers can use their credit accounts to redeem points for these flights.
Further details on more routes and flight schedules will be announced in the coming weeks, subject to approval from the authorities.
“We are very pleased to be able to fly again and to serve our guests starting with domestic routes, and hope to resume full operations as soon as possible,” president of Airlines Business at AirAsia Group Bo Lingam said. “We have undertaken a thorough review of our guest-handling procedures both on the ground and onboard in light of the Covid-19 pandemic. We have been working closely with airport authorities to ensure that all the relevant precautionary measures are in place to ensure a safe, pleasant and comfortable journey for everyone.”
Passengers are advised to adhere to universally recommended protective precautionary measures, including wearing a face mask, social distancing and observing strict personal hygiene. The aircraft, which are fitted with hospital-standard High Efficiency Particulate Air filters, will also be thoroughly disinfected after each flight.
