In a significant move for regional connectivity, AirAsia has announced the resumption of its services to Visakhapatnam, India, starting 26 April 2024. This marks a milestone as AirAsia becomes the sole Malaysian airline offering direct flights to this picturesque city. Known for its rich cultural heritage and natural beauty, Visakhapatnam, often called 'Vizag', is a hidden treasure on India's eastern coastline. The thrice-weekly flights will provide travelers an opportunity to explore its lush landscapes, historical landmarks, and traditional festivals.

Visakhapatnam is not just a cultural hub but also a paradise for beach lovers. Its serene beaches along the Bay of Bengal and the iconic Dolphin Hill offer unique experiences to visitors. To celebrate this new route, AirAsia is offering promotional fares until 14 February 2024, making it an enticing time for travelers to plan their journey to this majestic city.

Bo Lingam, Group CEO of AirAsia Aviation Group, shares his enthusiasm for this expansion, emphasizing AirAsia's commitment to enhancing connectivity in India, one of their key international markets. This launch is a part of a broader strategy to offer affordable and accessible travel options, fostering cultural exchange and tourism growth. The new Visakhapatnam route is a testament to AirAsia's dedication to creating more travel opportunities in the region.

This expansion is part of a series of new routes to India by AirAsia in 2024, including Thiruvananthapuram, Jaipur, and Ahmedabad, along with ongoing services to various cities in south and north India. This growing network underscores AirAsia's role in strengthening ties between Malaysia and India and enhancing the travel experience for passengers on both sides. As AirAsia continues to broaden its horizons, travelers can look forward to more affordable and diverse travel options in the coming year.
