AirAsia has launched flights between Kolkata and Kuala Lumpur. For all flights to India, AirAsia utilizes a brand new modern fleet of comfortable and spacious Airbus A320 aircraft fitted with leather seats.

Kathleen Tan, Regional Head of Commercial Airasia said, With Kolkata added to our extensive network, AirAsia is unlocking the potential of international air travel from Kuala Lumpur to eastern India and its surrounding areas. We are thrilled to be serving Kolkata direct, a huge market that no other airline is serving direct. With the commencement of the direct service to Kuala Lumpur, the people in West Bengal and India may now use Kolkata as a gateway to our extensive route network to ASEAN and beyond.

We always strive hard to continue expanding our presently extensive network, and there are plans to initiate services to other cities in India soon. Be on the lookout for more surprises from us, Ms. Tan added.

AirAsia is currently the largest low-cost carrier in Asia and services one of the most extensive route networks in South East Asia with over 70 destinations across 20 countries and 9 major hubs in Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Kota Kinabalu), Thailand (Bangkok, Phuket) and Indonesia (Jakarta, Bali, Surabaya, Bandung). It has grown from a modest two aircraft to its current fleet of 85, servicing over 130 routes in just 7 years.
