Malaysian low-cost airline AirAsia has introduced the resumption of direct flights from Kuala Lumpur to Nha Trang and Da Lat this week.

There can be two weekly flights on every sector, with fares costing RM179 (US$40.50).

They’d been suspended in April 2020 following the Covid outbreak.

Riad Asmat, CEO of AirAsia Malaysia, mentioned on the airline’s web site that travel demand to Vietnam has picked up following the lifting of Covid restrictions, and the resumption of economic flights is anticipated to help financial restoration within the two nations.

Vietnam has lifted most Covid restrictions besides travel insurance coverage for international vacationers and targets 5 million arrivals this 12 months, round 30 % of the quantity in 2019 earlier than the pandemic.
