AirAsia passengers planning on multiple-flight travel from Hong Kong, Macau and Guangzhou can now do so without having to apply for a transit visa, thanks to AirAsia’s Fly-Thru service.

The service, already available at selected AirAsia points of departure, enables passengers on multiple-flight travel to perform a single check-in for their original and connecting flights right through to their final airport of destination.

Fly-Thru is available to passengers travelling from Hong Kong, Macau and Guangzhou to continue with long haul flights to AirAsia X destinations by transiting through Kuala Lumpur, whose original and forward flights have a connecting time of between 90 minutes and six hours. Passengers can connect to their next flight to their intended destination without the need for immigration clearance or a transit visa in Malaysia.

Upon arrival in Kuala Lumpur, passengers will be given access to the transit hall, which is directly connected to the departure hall and will need to be at the departure gate at least 20 minutes before their connecting flight. The service also eliminates the need to re-check luggage when connecting to the next flight to the final destination.

From Hong Kong via Kuala Lumpur, passengers could connect with to AirAsia X flights to Australia (Perth, Gold Coast), India (Delhi, Mumbai), France (Paris) and New Zealand (Christchurch).

Passengers flying from Macau can connect to Australia (Perth, Melbourne), India (Delhi), France (Paris) and New Zealand (Christchurch).

AirAsia Regional Head of Commercial, Kathleen Tan said, “Now with Fly-Thru already available from Hong Kong, Macau and Guangzhou, our passengers may leverage on the strength of our network and connectivity to fly to various destinations across ASEAN and beyond with AirAsia and AirAsia X. With Kuala Lumpur as the gateway, one just needs to bring into play their creativity and imagination because with AirAsia, the possibilities are endless.”

Non Fly-Thru passengers will continue to be offered the option of point-to-point travel. Instead of the convenience of a single check-in service, they will be required to check in separately for their original and connecting flights and will not enjoy the check through service for their baggage. Passengers will also have to go through the immigration clearance at the check-points in Kuala Lumpur before being allowed to proceed to the departure gates for their connecting flights.
