Travelers can look forward to improved connectivity between Singapore and Malaysia as AirAsia reinstates five more routes beginning on April 16. Apart from increasing its Singapore–Kuala Lumpur daily frequency from one to four on that date, the low-cost carrier will also resume flights between Singapore and Kota Kinabalu. Services to Ipoh and Langkawi are due to follow the very next day, while those to Kuching and Miri will both restart on May 1.

Here is AirAsia’s planned flight schedule for services between Malaysia and Singapore:

Route Frequency Start Date
Singapore–Kuala Lumpur 1x daily, 4x daily from April 16 N/A (Existing)
Singapore–Penang Daily N/A
Singapore–Kota Kinabalu Daily April 16
Singapore–Ipoh 3x weekly (Wednesday, Friday, Sunday) April 17
Singapore–Langkawi 4x weekly (Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Sunday) April 17
Singapore–Kuching Daily May 1
Singapore–Miri 4x weekly (Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Sunday) May 1

Now that Malaysia has reopened its borders, fully vaccinated holidaymakers will only have to follow simplified entry protocols. International travelers are required to download and activate the MySejahtera contact-tracing app before departure; a PCR test within two days of the flight is a must, followed by a professionally administered rapid antigen test no more than 24 hours after one’s arrival in Malaysia. Foreign visitors will also need to purchase Covid-19 travel insurance with a minimum coverage of US$20,000.

Riad Asmat, AirAsia Malaysia’s CEO, said in a statement, “As we have done so for the past 20 years, serving the underserved has always been part of AirAsia’s DNA and we are committed to reconnect families and friends across international borders by providing the best deals and lowest fares to our guests.”

AirAsia says it has migrated 95 percent of its customers to contactless self-check in via its website and the airasia Super App. At all Malaysian airports, the airline’s counter check-in service is now strictly reserved for certain categories of guests, including senior citizens aged 70 and above, people with disabilities, children traveling alone, group bookings of 10 or more, and those on charter flights.
