Malaysian low cost carrier AirAsia Bhd announced today that it will resume its daily direct operations between Kuala Lumpur and the capital of Bangladesh, Dhaka. The airline said today its aircrafts will start flying on this route again from 10th July.
Kuala Lumpur to Dhaka Promotional All-In Fares from RM399
AirAsia is also offering all-in promotional air fares from RM399 for customers who want to travel this route. The price is for one way and it comes with free checked baggage allowance of up to 30 kilograms.
In a statement it released earlier today, AirAsia said:
The offer is available for booking from now to 28th June, 2015 for travel period of 10th June, 2015 until 31st May, 2016. Bookings can be made at airasia.com, mobile.airasia.com, or on AirAsia’s mobile app on iPhone and Android devices.
“Tapping into a Vast Market”, Says AirAsia
The airline also said it wants to tap into a “vast market” with a population exceeding 18 million people. This, according to the Malaysian carrier, will boost economic growth of both Kuala Lumpur and the capital of Bangladesh, Dhaka, as they receive an inflow of both leisure and business travelers.
Spencer Lee, AirAsia’s Commercial Chief Executive said:
Malaysia and Bangladesh have an existing strong bilateral tie, especially in trade and investment. We are pleased to contribute in boosting this further by providing better connectivity between both nations.
