AirAsia has resumed its Kuala Lumpur to Singapore flights today, allowing cross border travel for essential and official travellers following both countries’ announcement on the Reciprocal Green Lane (RGL) scheme.
The flight departed from klia2 today at 11:50hrs to Changi International Airport, and returned to klia2 at 14:35hrs.
AirAsia Malaysia CEO Riad Asmat said, “Both countries have taken relentless efforts and strict discipline in containing the spread of COVID-19, and the RGL is a first step towards reviving the economy, especially for those who have essential travel needs between both countries.
“We look forward to seeing more ‘travel bubbles’ and ‘green lanes’ formed between countries with low infection rates or active cases, and proven pandemic curbing systems to facilitate the need for air travel. At the same time, we urge all guests to adhere to the required regulations and follow the safety measures for a safe flying journey.”
AirAsia will continue to review the suitability of introducing more frequencies between the two countries.
AirAsia would like to remind guests of travel requirements set by both countries under the Reciprocal Green Lane (RGL) scheme.
