AirAsia X to double Perth and Mel flights

AirAsia X will offer a double daily service on its Kuala Lumpur to Melbourne and Kuala Lumpur to Perth sectors from 1 July.

The carrier currently offers a daily flight on both sectors.

Azran Osman-Rani, CEO of AirAsia X said: “Australian guests have been using our Kuala Lumpur hub as a gateway to connect to other exciting holiday destinations including Bangkok, Singapore, Penang, Langkawi, Phuket, Ho Chi Minh and many others. And with the new services from Kuala Lumpur to the various points in India like Mumbai, New Delhi, Hyderabad, Bangalore and others will definitely stimulate further demand."

"Loads have been consistently strong year-round on all Australian services and this has given us the confidence to increase our capacity particularly on Melbourne and Perth routes and as we grow our network and expand aggressively in India.”
