Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Send to Friend ASIA Travel Latest Travel News Wednesday, 28 October 2009

From 3 February 2010, AirAsia is to increase its frequencies between Kuala Lumpur and Melbourne from eleven to twelve flights weeks weekly.

AirAsia X General Manager Australia Darren Wright said despite the difficult economic climate, the Melbourne route continued to show strong growth for AirAsia.

“The Kuala-Lumpur – Melbourne route has been particularly popular for us and it shows no signs of weakening any time soon,” he said.

“This new service will give passengers better two-way connectivity by reducing transit times when connecting to further destinations and beyond including London, China and the Middle East and other routes serviced by AirAsia’s growing network.”

The new flight will commence 3 February 2010 and will depart Melbourne every Wednesday at 1.25pm and arrive in Kuala Lumpur at 6.40pm that day, local time. The inbound flight departs Kuala Lumpur at 1.20am and arrives into Melbourne at 12.10pm, local time.

Coinciding with the extra flight, AirAsia in February will roll out its new Premium Class seating on the Airbus A330, replacing the existing XL Class and providing larger, reclining seats – particularly attractive to long-haul passengers flying with AirAsia to China, Europe and the Middle East.

To celebrate the launch of the additional Kuala Lumpur – Melbourne flight, AirAsia is offering seats for sale from A$119 ex Melbourne to Malaysia, on sale from 29 October until 1 November 2009 for travel between 3 February 2010 and 31 July 2010. Prices include airport taxes.

Melbourne Airport Executive General Manager Corporate Development Damian Tkalec said, “This is yet another win for passengers – both from Victoria and those travelling to Melbourne, offering even more options for travel between Melbourne, Kuala Lumpur and beyond.”

In further signs of growth for AirAsia X the airline is also adding an additional service to its Kuala Lumpur – Gold Coast route taking frequency on that route to daily flights effective 6 February 2010.
