AirAsia X Malaysia CEO Benyamin Ismail said: “India has never been more affordable so there is no better time to travel. We are running some of our biggest sales yet to every India destination we fly to, including this new route from Kuala Lumpur to Ahmedabad. At the same time, the cost for the tourist e-visa fee for Malaysians is currently at its lowest.”

Benyamin added: “We thank the Indian government for lowering the visa fees for Malaysians to facilitate tourism growth. India is a must-see destination on many people’s travel list and we are confident that our latest promotional campaigns and extensive flight network will stimulate travel to India and also entice more Indian travellers to visit Malaysia in conjunction with Visit Malaysia Year 2020.”

All-inclusive member fares from Kuala Lumpur to Ahmedabad are now available for booking on from RM199 one-way for standard seats and RM899 one-way for the award-winning Premium Flatbeds. This promotion will run until Feb 16 for travel between April 29 to Oct 30.

The city of Ahmedabad is endowed with a rich architectural heritage, which is why this walled city founded in the 15th century was also India’s first city to be declared as UNESCO World Heritage City in the year 2017.

Visitors can travel back in time at the Bhadra Fort, marvel at the magnificent Adalaj Stepwell, find peace at Hutheesing Jain Temple and pay homage to Mahatma Gandhi at the Sabarmati Ashram, where he had stayed for over 12 years. With its rich culture and majestic buildings, visitors will be surprised by what Ahmedabad has to offer.
