AirAsia X is preparing to launch flights between Kuala Lumpur and Tokyo, Japan; the twelfth destination for the long haul low cost airline after Australia, India, Taiwan, China, Europe and Korea.

AirAsia X will commence direct services to Haneda Airport International terminal on 9 December 2010 with three non-stop weekly flights.

To mark the opening for sale of the new route, AirAsia X is offering all in fares from as low as RM99 one way from Kuala Lumpur to Tokyo for the booking period from 23 to 26 September 2010 for the travel period from 9 December 2010 to 31 July 2011.

Azran Osman-Rani, Chief Executive Officer, AirAsia X, said, “We estimate that more than 60% of AirAsia X passengers to and from Tokyo will be first time visitors, which will contribute significantly to tourism growth, allowing AirAsia X the opportunity to open up new market segments from Tokyo. This will further boost tourism traffic into Malaysia from Japan, which has already shown an increase in visitor arrivals to date in 2010 compared to last year. AirAsia X’s direct connection will be able to stimulate new travel demands and further tap the young working adults and families, to travel to Malaysia and thereafter use Kuala Lumpur as a gateway to over 132 routes in South East Asia that includes regional ASEAN cities or long-haul sectors serviced by AirAsia X. This translates into a low-cost yet efficient travel experience for guests who benefit from using the LCC Terminal in Kuala Lumpur to connect to destinations as diverse as Australia (Gold Coast, Perth, Melbourne), China (Hangzhou, Tianjin, Chengdu), Taipei, and London.”
