Male’ Maldives, 26th April 2023 – AirAsia Malaysia (AK) is set to be the first airline connecting Kuala Lumpur to Kertajati, Indonesia starting 17 May 2023.
Offering the only international connectivity out of Kertajati, the airline will bring the Greater Bandung and Cirebon metropolitan areas, as well as parts of the West Java and Central Java provinces, closer to Kuala Lumpur, which will provide a welcome boost to both countries’ economic and tourism growth.
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.
As AirAsia Malaysia’s 12th route in Indonesia, Kertajati strengthens the airline’s ongoing commitment to Indonesia as a core market and reinforces its mission to democratise air travel by connecting underserved cities in the region.
AirAsia Malaysia CEO Riad Asmat said: “We are thrilled to be the first airline connecting Kuala Lumpur to Kertajati commencing next month. This route will not only boost tourism and the economy in the respective regions, but also strengthen the ties between the two countries.
“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 (QZ), 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.”
In celebration of the new route launch, AirAsia is offering all-in* fares from RM149 one way starting today until 16 April 2023 for the travel period between 17 May and 23 October 2023 on airasia Super App or airasia.com.
