Look out Ipoh.

AirAsia is coming your way. Come Wednesday, Dec 23, AirAsia will connect the “City Which Tin Built” to the legendary island of Langkawi.

There will be three flights per week on every Wednesday, Fridays and Sundays. Ticket prices start from RM54.30.

Flying time is expected to be around 50 mins. 

“The recovery of domestic tourism will be a collective effort from everyone in the industry, and AirAsia is committed towards it from both the perspective of increasing the connectivity of domestic networks coupled with low fares, as well as continued stringent health and hygiene procedures for everyone to travel confidently,” said Amanda Woo, airasia.com Chief Commercial Officer/

When contacted, Perak Tourism Association (PTA) President, Datuk Mohd Odzman Kadir said that the new flight connection is very timely since Ipoh folks have been awaiting this flight connection for a long time.

The Ipoh to Langkawi flight will help Ipohites from going to Penang International Airport to catch their flights to Langkawi. 

As for those travelling by road, they do not have to take the ferry anymore.

“We also hope for a good rate so that more people can travel.

“With this new flight schedule, local tour and travel agents can prepare tour packages to suit local holidaymakers,” said Odzman when contacted by Ipoh Hyperlocal.

“I only hope that the flights would not be for a short term as the move will surely help spur domestic tourism,” added Odzman.

Apart from this, AirAsia will also begin operations for other new routes next week, which are Penang – Kota Bharu and Johor Bahru – Kota Bharu on Dec 22.

All flight bookings made from now up to 31 December 2020 with the travel period from now until 31 March 2021 are entitled to unlimited date changes with no flight change fee via My Bookings.
