 Operated exclusively by AirAsia Berhad (flight code AK), the direct flight marks the airline’s 10th route from the Pearl of the Orient, further strengthening AirAsia’s inter-ASEAN connectivity. Flights from Phuket to Penang will operate with daily direct flights.

Spencer Lee, Head of Commercial for AirAsia Malaysia said, “Penang is undoubtedly one of Malaysia’s pride with its World Heritage status, internationally acclaimed cuisines, vibrant cultures and beautiful architecture. More importantly, its strategic location at the crossroads in the region has helped boost the growing inbound and outbound travel demand that saw seven million tourist arrivals via air travel last year.”

Aside from Penang, AirAsia also flies directly from Phuket to Kuala Lumpur (31 times weekly one way).
