AirAsia is to launch flights between its hub in Kuala Lumpur and Jeddah in Saudi Arabia.

The flights from Kuala Lumpur to  King Abdul Aziz International Airport, Jeddah will commence on 16 February 2013. The route will initially operate 3 flights weekly from 16 February to 30 April 2013, increasing to 4 flights weekly from 1 May 2013 onwards.

To celebrate the new route, AirAsia X is offering promotional fares from as low as MYR399 (SAR499) in Economy, and from as low as MYR1599 (SAR1999) for a Premium Flatbed from Kuala Lumpur to Jeddah one way.

 Bookings can be made from today (18/1/2013) until 20 January 2013, for travel between 16 February 2013 and 9 February 2014. Terms and conditions apply.

 “With Jeddah being the gateway to Holy cities of Madinah and Makkah, we are delighted that our services will provide more affordable travel for our Muslim guests in Malaysia and throughout the region to perform the Holy pilgrimage of Hajj and Umrah,” said Azran Osman-Rani, CEO of AirAsia X. “Similarly, guests from Saudi Arabia will have the opportunity to travel across our extensive network in South East Asia and beyond. We believe that AirAsia’s wide network and favourable fare structures make cultural, heritage, recreational and shopping destinations across Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand, Australia and other countries in the Asia Pacific region more accessible to guests and thus will create new travel demand from Saudi Arabia.”

AirAsia X Fly-thru destinations on offer concurrent with the promotional campaign include destinations from Jeddah to Australia (Melbourne) from SAR1,238, Indonesia (Jakarta, Medan, Surabaya, Bali) from SAR712 and Singapore from SAR620. The Fly-thru service allows passengers to purchase two flight sectors and seamlessly transit via Kuala Lumpur for their next destination.
