AirAsia ties up with Makemytrip, Yatra

Malaysian low-cost carrier AirAsia has hooked up with online travel agencies Makemytrip and Yatra to sell tickets for its proposed airline venture in India, putting a big question mark over its exclusive arrangement with joint venture partner Expedia.

“As per our contract, we are exclusive and we would like to maintain that exclusivity,” says Vikram Malhi, general manager, South Asia and Southeast Asia, Expedia, the world’s biggest online travel company.

AirAsia too sells tickets directly on the international routes from India.
