AirAsia has said it is delighted about the announcement by Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Najib Tun Abdul Razak regarding the granting of landing rights in Paris by the French government.

Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Najib, who was on a four-day official visit to France, told reporters in Paris that French President Nicolas Sarkozy had conveyed approval of the landing rights in their meeting at the Elysee Palace.

“The French government’s approval places AirAsia in a significant position, in line with the plans by AirAsia X to expand our operations in Europe,” said AirAsia X CEO Azran. Currently, AirAsia X flies seven times a week to London-Stansted, the airline’s sole destination in Europe.

“AirAsia X had initially considered launching a route from Kuala Lumpur to Nice, France, next year but with this latest news, the airline will re-calibrate its strategy as we now have an opportunity to fly to Paris. We will work closely with the relevant authorities to make this flight a reality.”

“The date for the launch of our flights to Paris will be decided upon completion of further discussions with the relevant officials. We will provide more updates as further developments arise,” added Azran.

AirAsia X operates out of Kuala Lumpur. The airline extends AirAsia's short-haul success to the long-haul segment.

In addition to London, AirAsia X operates flights to cities in Australia and China as well as to Taipei, Taiwan. In November, the airline will operate its first route to the Middle East, with the inaugural flight to Abu Dhabi.
