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.
