Low-cost carrier AirAsia Indonesia has extended the suspension of flight operations in Indonesia until May 31.

Previously, the airline had announced it would suspend flights operations within the country until May 7

Following the latest decision on the suspension of operations due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which was announced on Friday, earlier plans to resume limited flight operations from Surabaya in East Java to two Malaysian cities, namely Kuala Lumpur and Johor Bahru, on May 18 have been shelved.

According to a statement, the company will gradually begin QZ-coded scheduled flights on selected international and domestic routes starting on June 1, in response to the extension of large-scale social restrictions (PSBB) in several regions.

Passengers affected by the suspension are advised to look for the latest information on airasia.com or the carrier's app.

All AirAsia Indonesia passengers will be required to wear face masks throughout their flight, from check-in to baggage collection at their destination airport. The company also urged them to bring a spare face mask and hand sanitizer. (kes)
