Malaysia's AirAsia gets nod for KL-Singapore flights
Malaysia's government has agreed to let low-cost carrier AirAsia fly twice daily from Kuala Lumpur and Singapore, ahead of liberalization of air travel between the two countries, officials said Thursday.

Transport Minister Chan Kong Choy said the Cabinet has given the nod for AirAsia, Southeast Asia's biggest no-frills airline, to fly the lucrative route, the fourth busiest in Asia.

As a reciprocal arrangement, one Singapore budget airline will also be allowed to operate flights but this is up to the city-state to decide on which carrier, he said.

"The government's decision is to further enhance Kuala Lumpur's position as the leading low-cost hub in Asia," Chan told reporters.
