No More Hassle in LCCT with AirAsia’s Fly-Thru

17 January 2011, Singapore – AirAsia’s guests flying on multiple-flights from Singapore to their final destination (routes between Singapore and Gold Coast, Hangzhou, Mumbai, New Delhi, London, Christchurch) via Kuala Lumpur can do so without having to apply for a transit visa with Fly-Thru – A service that enables guests on multiple flights travel to perform a single check-in for their original and connecting flights right through to their final airport of destination.

Fly-Thru is available on selected AirAsia (short-haul) and all AirAsia X (long-haul) flights transiting through Kuala Lumpur whose original and forward flights have a connecting time of between 90 minutes and six hours. Guests can now connect to their next flight to their intended destination without the need for immigration clearance or a transit visa in Malaysia. Upon arrival in Kuala Lumpur, guests will be given access to the transit hall, which is directly connected to the departure hall and will need to be at the departure gate at least 20minutes before their connecting flight.

The service also eliminates the need to re-check luggage when connecting to the next flight to the final destination.  This is a big improvement to last year when I had to route through Kuala Lumpur from Singapore to get to London for the AirAsia British MotoGP.  I remember the hassle of clearing immigration and collecting my luggage when I flew in from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur’s LCCT and re-checking in and clearing immigration to get onto the AirAsia X flight from Kuala Lumpur to London.

AirAsia’s Regional Head of Commercial, Kathleen Tan said that Fly-Thru is the result of the airline’s continuous effort to innovate its service offerings and bring convenience to low-cost air travel.

“While creativity and effectiveness continue to drive AirAsia forward, we will continue to seek innovative tools and platforms that simplify air travel and provide a better service experience to all our guests”

“Fly-Thru enables guests to leverage on the strength of our network and connectivity to position Kuala Lumpur as the gateway for travel across ASEAN and beyond”, added Kathleen.

Guests who do not want to leverage on this service, will continue to be offered the option of point-to-point travel. Instead of the convenience of a single check-in service, they will be required to check in separately for their original and connecting flights and will not enjoy the check through service for their baggage.  Guests will also have to go through the immigration clearance at the check-points in Kuala Lumpur before being allowed to proceed to the departure gates for their connecting flights.
