AirAsia Ticket Sales For Flights To Langkawi Go Hard!


 AirAsia showed a strong surge in demand for flights to Langkawi following the reopening of the tourism sector as announced last week.

AirAsia Malaysia Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Riad Asmat said the company had secured 200,000 ticket sales through the reopening of the island.

Through ticket sales by AirAsia, it has recorded a sales rate of around 30,000 tickets for the first day booking period alone.

According to him, AirAsia Malaysia flight tickets for September and October have sold out and he is confident that the momentum will continue.

CEO of airasia Super App, Amanda Woo stated that the company will also offer an e-hailing service (AirAsia ride) to operate in Langkawi Island on 16 September.

Meanwhile, the CEO of the Langkawi Development Authority (LADA), Nasaruddin Abdul Muttalib expressed the hope to work strategically with AirAsia to attract more tourists to the island.

It also hopes that the effort will open up opportunities for more new domestic and international trips to Langkawi through support from the Federal government.

In the meantime, LADA also collaborated with the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture to prepare a comprehensive SOP for the international market.
