The continued growth in AirAsia services to India ensures a comprehensive and seamless travel experience for AirAsia’s guests across India to the widest low-cost network in Asia. 

Leveraging its Fly-Thru connectivity, where AirAsia passengers can fly from India to Southeast Asia, Australia, New Zealand, and other destinations with one seamless booking, the airline is transforming the way its guests experience international travel, making overseas exploration more accessible and affordable.

AirAsia Aviation Group CEO Bo Lingam commented: “India has always been a key market for AirAsia and following recent changes to our operations in the country, we remain committed to serving the market. We have flown a remarkable 1.6 million guests from India between January and November this year, showcasing the enduring strength of our great value fares and connectivity.

“As we continue to strengthen our presence in India, we are excited to announce our expansion plans, including the launch of a new route to Thiruvananthapuram soon. We are dedicated to making international travel from India not only accessible but also affordable for everyone.”

Over the years, we have witnessed tremendous growth, connecting countless cities and regions in India to the world, and we are proud to share that AirAsia now serves 11 destinations in India. Our expansion in India has resulted in 104 weekly flights, making us a vital and reliable link between India and the globe.
