Passengers from 15 cities, including Bali, Melbourne, Sydney, Singapore and Bangkok, can connect to Amritsar (via Kuala Lumpur) alongside existing routes to New Delhi and Jaipur using AirAsia’s Fly-Thru service.

AirAsia X CEO, Benyamin Ismail, said, “We are excited to bring the AirAsia experience to Amritsar for the very first time. Amritsar is of significant interest to tourists thanks to the Harmandir Sahib (The Golden Temple) and the city’s numerous historic and cultural sites. Following a recent network review, Amristar and other cities in India were identified as being underserved from the Asia Pacific region, particularly when it comes providing affordable long-haul travel. We are confident the new services will prove popular for both tourist and domestic visitors alike.”

Since 2008, AirAsia has carried more than 19 million passengers across 21 cities in India, including more than 300,000 guests on its long-haul network to New Delhi and Jaipur.
