Exciting news from AirAsia! The Kuala Lumpur - Vientiane route will resume on July 2, 2024. With this announcement, AirAsia Malaysia will become the only airline to offer direct flights to all ten ASEAN countries.

As the leading low-cost carrier in ASEAN by passenger numbers, AirAsia plays a vital role in driving the regional economy. Its contribution extends beyond significant job creation to include tourism spending and various other important aspects of the local economy that have a significant positive impact.

The return of two weekly flights to Vientiane, in line with the Lao government's efforts to attract 2.7 million foreign tourists by 2024, is expected to boost bookings for the upcoming summer holidays.

Before this route was temporarily suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic, AirAsia successfully carried nearly 50,000 passengers between Kuala Lumpur International and Vientiane in 2019. This made AirAsia the most popular airline on the route, demonstrating the significant public interest in its services.

AirAsia's extensive network in the region, which is home to some 800 million people, not only facilitates connectivity but also strengthens economic growth and cultural exchange through tourism.

Bo Lingam, CEO of AirAsia Aviation Group, expressed his pride to be part of an ASEAN airline re-introducing this route. He highlighted AirAsia's strong commitment to the ASEAN region, with operations in five countries and connectivity to 130 destinations in the region and beyond.

For travelers who want to explore the entire ASEAN region, AirAsia has launched AirAsia MOVE, formerly known as AirAsia Superapp, as an innovative platform that connects the entire ASEAN region. Through its flagship product, the ASEAN Explorer Pass, you are invited to explore the richness and beauty of ASEAN in ways never before imagined.

With the ASEAN Explorer Pass subscription, you can explore the entire ASEAN region on AirAsia's international and domestic flights and enjoy benefits like hotel discounts and AirAsia Ride access for a whole year.
