Trichy airport airport director S Dharmaraj confirmed that Air India Express has sought slot allocation for daily flight service to Kuala Lumpur from May 24. Sources from Trichy airport say that the diplomatic clearance on operating Vande Bharat Mission flights was obtained from the Malaysian government on strict norms.

Indian passengers cannot travel to Kuala Lumpur, however Malaysian nationals are given exception provided they undergo quarantine for 14 days.
