AirAsia X has launched flights to Tokyo's Narita Airport
from Kuala Lumpur.
Narita is AirAsia X’s second airport
in Tokyo after Haneda, which was launched on 9 Dec 2010.
celebrate the launch AirAsia X is offering promotional fares to
Narita from Kuala Lumpur from MYR549 (JPY20,000) in Economy Class
and from just MYR1,599 (JPY65,000) in Business Class. The fares
are available for online bookings until 30 November 2014 for
travel before 9 June 2015.
Azran Osman-Rani, CEO of AirAsia X said, “Our
service to Tokyo-Narita enhances our connectivity offering,
complementing our existing daily services to Tokyo-Haneda that
arrives at night, with this service via Narita airport that
arrives into Tokyo in the morning. Given the unique nature of
Tokyo’s airport constraints and the large size of the market, we
are confident that this dual-airport operation will work. Many
major Asian airlines operate from both Haneda and Narita airports,
and the existing operations of our affiliate, Thai AirAsia X
operating from Narita, gives us scale benefits.”
Natsume, CEO of Narita International Airport Corp. said,
“We extend a heartfelt welcome to AirAsia X at Narita Airport.
AirAsia X will be the only LCC at Narita Airport to operate on the
Kuala Lumpur route. This will provide our customers at Narita with
completely new options in terms of air fares and schedules, give
them inexpensive access to the extensive AirAsia X network
extending throughout the Asia region and to Australia, and make it
possible for them to create travel plans that are more diverse and
attractive than before.”
