Who can travel to Malaysia now? You must note that these flight services are specifically meant for Indian passengers who are stranded in Malaysia due to lockdown and various other reason. In these flights, the Indian passengers cannot travel to Kuala Lumpur. However, the Malaysian nationals are given exceptions provided they undergo quarantine for 14 days upon their arrival at the airport.

Check new RT-PCR test rule: Starting from May 22, all passengers traveling out from India must have to have a negative Covid-19 (RT-PCR) report with a QR code linking to the original report. In case, any passenger failed to provide a negative RT-PCR test with a QR code they would not be allowed to board.

Fully vaccinated crew: It must be noted that Air India Express earlier this month operated the country’s first international flight with a fully COVID-19 vaccinated crew. Flight IX 191 flew from Delhi at 10:40 AM for Dubai with the pilots and all crew fully vaccinated against the coronavirus.

“Captain DR Gupta and Captain Alok Kumar Nayak captained the flight with cabin crew members Venkat Kella, Praveen Chandra, Pravin Chougle and Manisha Kamble. The same crew operated the return flight IX 196, on the Dubai-Jaipur- Delhi sector,” the airline said.
