KUALA LUMPUR, July 11 (Bernama) -- AirAsia and AirAsia X have introduced 139 brand new Fly-Thru routes, a connecting flight service transitting through Kuala Lumpur (klia2) or Bangkok-Don Mueang (DMK) without the need for immigration clearance or a transit visa in Malaysia or Thailand.
The service, effective immediately, also eliminates the need to re-check-in luggage all the way through to the final disembarkation point, AirAsia said in a statement Friday.
"Fly-Thru guests will receive an onward flight boarding pass from the first point of embarkation and will be allowed to bypass immigration clearance at the airline's Fly-Thru hubs -- klia2 or DMK with all check-in baggage tagged for automatic transfer to the consecutive flight, all the way to the final destination.
"With these brand new routes, AirAsia guests could enjoy more than 700 Fly-Thru routes, via the airline's Fly-Thru hubs in klia2 and DMK, with the initial and consecutive flights' connecting time of between 90 minutes to six hours," it said.
Upon arrival at AirAsia's Fly-Thru hub guests will be given access to the transfer hall which is connected to the departure hall and issued with a subsequent flight boarding pass.
Among popular Fly-Thru routes includes Phuket-Melbourne, Phuket-Sydney, DMK- Osaka-Kansai, Penang-Taipei, Kota Kinabalu-Beijing, Kuching-Melbourne, Langkawi-Melbourne and others.
