SEPANG, 16 September 2021 - AirAsia is celebrating more than just its maiden flight from Kuala Lumpur to Langkawi today with the launch of its very first ride hailing services on the island also part of the celebrations.

To facilitate this movement, we have prepared extensively and implemented robust and comprehensive health and safety protocols to ensure all of our guests can travel safely, with our 100% vaccinated crew and frontliners. Guests are advised to make full use of the airasia Super App for a seamless and contactless experience throughout the journey - from checking in, uploading and securing health document verification online, through to boarding with an e-Boarding Pass and including inflight services.'

'After months of preparation, we are thrilled to get the country flying again and are ready to scale up our operations to meet overwhelming demand. We hope more travel bubbles will be established across the country soon in line with the accelerated vaccination roll out, and eventually across the region when it is safe to do so.'

Amanda Woo, Chief Executive Officer airasia Super App said, 'This is a proud day for AirAsia, as we begin to mobilise the airasia ecosystem to support Langkawi Development Authority (LADA) and all other industry players on the island, and to revitalise the tourism and economic recovery in Langkawi.'
