AirAsia, one of the low cost airlines in Asia has announced that the domestic flight resumptions are starting on April 29 with other countries following in the days after. The initial recovery from COVID-19 or deadly coronavirus will not be the carrier’s full schedule. Instead, AirAsia will gradually bring back operations, with international routes restarting after domestic.
The schedule is not hard and fast. Governments still need to give their approval. This may not happen for a few days, or even some weeks, as the situation continues to evolve. The primary goal for governments is to restrict the spread of illness and to keep people at home.
Like many other airlines, the carrier is taking things slow with its service restart. It will begin with critical connections before adding international flights. Border restrictions will largely determine when the airline is able to open international routes.
