KUALA LUMPUR, Apr 10 — AirAsia Malaysia is set to be the first airline connecting Kuala Lumpur to Kertajati, Indonesia starting May 17, 2023, strengthening its commitment to Indonesia as a core market and reinforcing its mission to democratise air travel by connecting underserved cities in the region.

It will be the only international connectivity out of Kertajati, bringing the Greater Bandung and Cirebon metropolitan areas, as well as parts of West Java and Central Java provinces closer to Kuala Lumpur. The route will boost both countries’ economic and tourism growth, AirAsia said in a statement today.

“The two weekly flights will land and depart from Kertajati International Airport located in Majalengka Regency in West Java province, which is the second largest airport in Indonesia,” it said.

AirAsia Malaysia chief executive officer Riad Asmat said: “Serving the underserved underpins our brand. As an airline group with extensive connectivity in Asean and the Asia Pacific, together with our affiliate, Indonesia AirAsia, we will continue to connect travellers directly to numerous unique and inadequately serviced cities in Indonesia and Malaysia as well as to the major destinations.

“Just as we pioneered connectivity into Bandung in 2004, we are excited to bring more people to West Java to experience the rich culture and natural wonders of this incredible region. We are also looking forward to flying more travellers to Kuala Lumpur where we can connect them to the rest of Asean with our extensive network,” he said.

To celebrate the new route launch, AirAsia is offering all-in fares from RM149 one-way starting today until April 16, 2023, for the travel period between May 17 and Oct 23, 2023, on airasia Super App or airasia.com.
