AirAsia has launched daily direct flights between the two capital cities of Sri Lanka and Malaysia - Colombo and Kuala Lumpur.

 Dato’ Sri Tony Fernandes, Group Chief Executive Officer of AirAsia, said, “Colombo has long been on our network radar and we are very proud to liberalize the market to the world. We have sold approximately 30,000 seats since we opened for sale about two months ago. This is indeed a clear testament that AirAsia’s low fares have empowered people to fly. We are excited play a key role in promoting Colombo’s beautiful city and people to the rest of the world,”

Mr. Bernard Goonetilleke, Chairman of Sri Lanka Tourism Promotion Bureau added, “The launch of daily flights to Colombo from Kuala Lumpur will be mutually beneficial to both Air Asia and Sri Lanka Tourism, as we can expect a considerable increase in both inbound and outbound travel to both destinations, which bodes well for tourism in both Malaysia and Sri Lanka.”

AirAsia is operating the new route with 180-seat Airbus A320 aircraft.
