I departed from Singapore and used the AirAsia Fly-Thru service to connect my flight to the direct flight from Kuala Lumpur to Nha Trang. My checked-in luggage was transferred directly from Singapore to Nha Trang. There is no need for me to go through the hassle of dealing with immigration clearance at transit.

The process is really fast and convenient! AirAsia’s excellent one-stop service enables me to travel at ease.
