Male’, Maldives, 3rd March 2024 – In an effort to bolster ties between Malaysia and India, AirAsia continues to expand its seamless and affordable air travel network, with plans to grow its routes across India. Highlighted in an exclusive roundtable discussion in Chennai, AirAsia’s Chief of Airport & Customer Experience, Mr. Kesavan Sivanandam, emphasized the airline’s commitment to enhancing connectivity.

Rahim, Director of South India and Sri Lanka of Tourism Malaysia, the discussion involved over 20 media members from both countries.
