The resumption of a direct between the two cities must bring some good news to many Indian travelers and their counterparts in Malaysia, as it will be able to experience the carrier's 'fly thru' service through the Malaysian capital.
The airline used to operate a direct service between the two cities until it ceased operations in 2011.
Hyderabad is the state capital of Telangana and the fourth largest city in India located in the southern region of the country.
An AirAsia official said that the reopening of the route will give Indian travelers from the southern state to have a direct access to the bustling capital of Malaysia. It will enable travelers from the region to experience a hassle-free connection to some of Malaysia's major tourist destinations such as Kuching, Kota Kinabalu, Langkawi and Penang cities and many other exciting points in the country.
In the same manner, Malaysian travelers will have an easier and quicker way to explore the southern regions of India through Hyderabad, which is the major international gateway in the south. India's southern states offer a kaleidoscope of sights and sounds which complement the rich cultural heritage of their people.
The direct link will certainly encourage and stimulate residents to travel more between the two countries and enhance connectivity beyond their respective hubs.
From Kuala Lumpur, Indian travelers will have easy access to regional destinations like Bali, Phuket, Bangkok, Jakarta, Hong Kong, Singapore, Ho Chi Minh, Brunei, Sydney, Gold Coast, Perth and Melbourne.
The 'fly thru' flights will be available for booking starting October 7 through the airline's official website, www.airasia.com.
To usher in the relaunch of the service, AirAsia also held a ticket promo offering all-in one-way tickets for as low as Rs2,099.
The promo tickets were made available for booking until October 5. Tickets are valid for travel between December 8, 2014 and October 24, 2015.
