These new routes will simultaneously commence on June 1, 2009 with daily services.
"By opening up these routes, we are looking forward to stimulating more travel and tourism activities which will definitely benefit the country's economy," said AirAsia Regional Head of Commercial, Kathleen Tan, in a statement today.
"We always remain bullish that our low fares will help to stimulate and induce new travel demand, and will help boost tourism potential on both ends," she said.
The free seats deals are exclusively available online via AirAsia's website at www.airasia.
Booking period is from April 27 to May 3, 2009 for travel between June 1, 2009 and Jan 31, 2010.
Alongside the new routes, the airline is increasing its frequency from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore, bringing the total frequency to eight direct daily flights from the current seven.
The added frequency will also commence operations on June 1, 2009, with free seats on offer to mark its initiation.
The free seats offer is also available online with similar booking and travel period as the new routes above.
"Our Kuala Lumpur - Singapore route on the other hand, received tremendous response ever since it was first introduced, with an average load factor of 80 percent," said Tan.
The free seats offer exclude airport tax, admin fees and are applicable for one-way only.
