AirAsia X to increase flights to Australia

  • Published by Vedat
Long-haul, low-cost carrier, AirAsia X is to increase its current flights from Kuala Lumpur to the Australian cities of Sydney, Melbourne and Perth to a double daily schedule later this year as it allocates its additional capacity for the remainder of the year to the market.

air-asia-xThis network growth is expected to position AirAsia X as Australia’s fourth largest foreign carrier by the end of 2013.

The announcement follows the finalisation of a revised bilateral agreement between the Australian and Malaysian governments and an expansion of AirAsia X’s long-haul fleet of Airbus A330-300s which will comprise 16 aircraft at the end of December 2013.

Under the new schedule the carrier will increase its current flights to Sydney and Melbourne from 12 weekly flights and Perth from its current 9 weekly flights to 14 flights a week. The double daily flights from Kuala Lumpur to Melbourne will start from October 1, 2013; and to Sydney and Perth from November 25, 2013. AirAsia X also recently announced its entry into Adelaide, with four weekly flights to its hub in Kuala Lumpur set to begin October 31, 2013 and a return to seven flights a week on the Gold Coast.
