KUALA LUMPUR: AirAsia expects a strong recovery for air travel in all key domestic destinations and for international flights to resume in the near future, complemented by stringent health and safety protocols that the airline has put in place.

In a statement today, AirAsia said that following the government’s announcement of the resumption of interstate travel and the reopening of tourism activities once the vaccination rate for adults reaches 90% in Malaysia, the budget carrier is geared up to fully restore its domestic and international services.

“This is further spurred by the success of the Langkawi travel bubble that commenced on Sept 16,” it said.

The airline has recorded overwhelming demand for leisure destinations that have reopened recently, including Langkawi (Malaysia), Boracay, Cebu and Bohol (the Philippines), and Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai and Hat Yai (Thailand).

“Load factors for these leisure destinations have been in the healthy range of 80-90% with more frequencies and routes to be added soon in line with consistently strong forward bookings.
