AirAsia will offer Hyderabad passengers its Fly-Thru service which allows booking of connecting flights to domestic destinations in Malaysia like Penang, Langkawi, Kota Kinabalu, and Kuching and other international destination served by AirAsia and AirAsia X like Singapore, Bali, Jakarta, Bangkok, Phuket, Hong Kong, Ho Chi Minh City, Brunei, Sydney, Gold Coast, Melbourne and Perth.
