The first flight of Malaysia’s AirAsia Airlines from the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur to Can Tho International Airport in the Mekong Delta landed on the morning of April 8.

Ms. Laddawan Meesupwatana, AirAsia’s Director of Products and Indochina Market, said Can Tho has great potential for tourism development and 8.5 million Vietnamese tourists visited Malaysia in 2018. The direct flights will help push the local economies and tourism sectors of the two cities and connect people living in the Mekong Delta with Southeast Asia and beyond through AirAsia’s extensive network. There will be four flights a week from Can Tho to Kuala Lumpur and return, on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.

According to Ms. Meesupwatana, AirAsia will also open flights connecting Can Tho with Bangkok, starting in May.

To mark the opening of direct flights to Kuala Lumpur, AirAsia is offering promotional fares starting from only VND730,000 ($33) one-way, including taxes and fees. Bookings can be made at www.airasia.com or on the AirAsia mobile app from now to April 21, for flights from April 8 to September 30.

AirAsia operates 16 direct routes to Vietnam, connecting Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Da Nang, Nha Trang, Phu Quoc, and Can Tho with six destinations in Malaysia, Thailand, and the Philippines. Can Tho is the sixth airport in Vietnam where AirAsia conducts international flights, with this route joining two other international routes to Taiwan and Bangkok.
