Conclusion

With not much tourism since Covid19 hit the world in 2020, the aviation industry is now coming back slowly since Q3 and Q4 of 2021. More countries are opening up for tourism as well.

In Malaysia, several airlines have also opened up more routes since the country opened its local borders on 11th October, including Malaysia Airlines, AirAsia and even Malindo Air.

And to conclude, AirAsia is also the winner in the best low-cost airline category for the World’s Best Airlines 2021 by Skytrax.
