AirAsia was granted traffic rights by the Malaysian Aviation Commission (MAVCOM) to start five new Asian services from August onwards.

MAVCOM's latest bulletin shows that these flights will operate from Kuala Lumpur to Guangzhou, Jambi and Tanjung Pandan, alongside Sibu-Singapore and Penang-Kuala Terengganu routes.

New MAVCOM traffic rights

The low-cost airline was also cleared to raise frequencies on two domestic services, while both Malaysia Airlines and Malindo Air were permitted to add flights internationally.

Traffic rights on nine domestic and international routes were also returned in July, although MAVCOM did not specify operators whose traffic rights were given back. This covers three routes to China, two routes to Nepal, one domestic route, as well as one route each to Indonesia, Japan and Vietnam.
