AirAsia X (AAX) today announced that it will be flying from Kuala Lumpur to London, Dubai and Istanbul this year. At the same time the airline celebrates the launch of four new routes to Japan and Hawaii which are all on sale from today.
With today’s announcement, AAX is now offering flights across seven popular routes from Kuala Lumpur to New Delhi, Sydney, Seoul (Incheon), Tokyo (Haneda), Sapporo (Chitose), Osaka (Kansai), and from Osaka (Kansai) to Honolulu. All of these routes are on sale from today until 26 June 2022, for travel between 1 July 2022 to 26 March 2023, starting from RM499 (all-in-fare* one way) for economy seats and from RM1,499 for a Premium Flatbed.
Datuk Kamarudin Meranun, Executive Chairman of Capital A and Founder of AirAsia X said, “We are thrilled to return to London and to launch flights for the first time to Dubai and Istanbul.
Capital A President (Commercial) Colin Currie said, “Maximum value, maximum experience and maximum destinations are what the relaunched AAX stands for. However, the ethos of AirAsia – delivering low cost, high quality will continue to underpin the new-look AAX, providing maximum opportunity for everyone to go to their dream destinations.
“Capital A will support AAX moving forward, as a conduit to leverage synergies within our broad ecosystem of travel and lifestyle products. We will use our full resources including the airasia Super App, our cargo business Teleport, fintech arm BigPay and all of the other airlines in the AirAsia Aviation Group to take AAX to new heights.”
AirAsia X CEO Benyamin Ismail said, “I am confident all of our resumed or new services will prove to be very popular and that we will return to pre-Covid capacity on some of our core routes within the next 12 months.
“Our strategic new model, combining cargo and passengers enables AirAsia X to fly profitably where other airlines may not be able to, which makes operations to longer-haul routes like Dubai, Istanbul and London, commercially viable and more affordable for our guests at the same time.”
