AirAsia X is to increase its flights between Kuala Lumpur and the Gold Coast in Australia by two return flights, from four to six, each week.

The new flights commencing 21st October 2009 will depart the Gold Coast every Wednesday and Friday at 09:05 (AEST) and arrive in Kuala Lumpur at 15:25 that day, local time.

AirAsia X Chief Executive Officer Azran Osman-Rani said the Gold Coast had proved to be an enduring route for the airline, which also flies to Melbourne and Perth in Australia.

Despite a shrinking global aviation market, AirAsia X continues to buck the trend by delivering growth on all of our routes, Mr Osman-Rani said. For the Gold Coast market alone, our passenger traffic grew by almost 15% in the first half of 2009 versus the same period in 2008.

The increased flights coincide with the roll-out of new Premium Class seating which will replace the existing XL Class and includes larger, reclining seats - particularly attractive to long-haul passengers flying with AirAsia to Europe.

To celebrate the launch of the additional flights AirAsia is offering seats for sale from A$149 ex Gold Coast to Malaysia and are on sale until 9th August 2009 for travel between 20th October 2009 and 10th January 2010. Prices include airport taxes and terms apply.
