AirAsia spreads its wings to the historical state of Melaka with new daily direct flights from Penang starting July 1, 2019.

The new flight will boost tourist arrivals to the city, helping to support the state government’s target to attract 20 million visitors in 2019.

Riad Asmat, AirAsia Malaysia Chief Executive Officer, said:

With its UNESCO world heritage listing and rich history, Melaka is one of the number one places to visit in Malaysia. This new route further strengthens our tourism footprint in Malaysia, providing more options for international visitors to travel between the states of Penang and Melaka.

“We look forward to continuing our work to explore even more new routes to Melaka from other parts of our Asean network.”

One of Malaysia’s most sought after holiday destinations, Melaka is listed as a UNESCO heritage site since 2008.
