- AirAsia has restarted operations to Dhaka (DAC) after a gap of nearly four years on 10 July. The 2,641-kilometre sector from Kuala Lumpur (KUL) will be flown daily using the carrier’s A320s. The LCC will face strong competition on the city pair as it re-enters the market, facing Malaysia Airlines (21 times weekly), Malindo Airways (11), Biman Bangladesh Airlines (7), United Airways Bangladesh (6), and Regent Airways (5). Spencer Lee, AirAsia’s Head of Commercial, commented on the launch by saying: “We are very glad to be returning to Dhaka. It is always a proud moment for all of us at AirAsia to see another inaugural flight take off, as it signifies yet another addition to our extensive flight network, adding on to our excellent connectivity to Asia and beyond for our passengers.”
