Air Asia is largest Malaysian airline by fleet size and destinations and is known for its low-cost operations. It is also renowned for being Asia’s largest low-cost airline by passengers carried and jet fleet. The launch of this new airline could be a great boon for Kashmir tourism as it will help increase number of tourists during the peak season. More flights during the peak season will also mean that airfare could get cheaper and lead to more visitors in the region which is one of India’s most beautiful tourist attractions. Also, since the Chief Minister has been insisting on getting local youth involved in projects, AirAsia has decided to recruit ground staff and cabin crew locally. This may strike a chord with local travelers making AirAsia a preferred choice. AirAsia also plans to connect Srinagar to other destinations of India soon. NOW SEE 5 best luxury hotels in Srinagar Also Read - Telangana May Extend Coronavirus Lockdown Beyond April 15, Says CM K Chandrasekhar Rao
