AirAsia is to introduce two new routes: Singapore–Langkawi and Penang–Singapore, with daily services on both beginning on 1 June.

Alongside the new routes, the airline is increasing its frequency from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore, bringing the total frequency to eight direct daily flights from the current seven. The added frequency will also begin operations on 1 June.

"By opening up these routes, we are looking forward to stimulating more travel and tourism activities which will definitely benefit the country's economy," remarked AirAsia Regional Head of Commercial, Kathleen Tan. "Direct flight to these islands will offer more choices in holiday destinations for the Singaporean public, and our low fares will definitely be the utmost reason for them to visit new locations in Malaysia."
