NEW DELHI: Airlinks between Malaysia and India need to grow to restore tourism to pre-pandemic levels, said Deputy Tourism, Arts and Culture Minister Khairul Firdaus Akbar Khan.
Malaysia Airlines, Batik Air, AirAsia and IndiGo operate 170 flights weekly, offering 29,000 seats from India to Malaysia.

Tourism Malaysia is making a strong push this year to boost arrivals from India, a key market, with promotional activities in major cities.
