AirAsia X to Launch KL - Sapporo Flights

AirAsia X is to launch 4 times weekly direct flights between Kuala Lumpur and Sapporo, Japan, on 1 October 2015.

To celebrate the launch, AirAsia X is offering promotional all-in-fares from as low as RM99 one way for Economy, and RM999 one way for a Premium Flatbed. The promotional fares are available for online booking starting until 2 August 2015 for travel between 1 October 2015 and 31 August 2016.

“We are thrilled to expand our network to Japan with direct flights to Sapporo, Hokkaido! We are happy to see our network growing from strength to strength and I am sure many Malaysians share the same excitement as us as AirAsia X will be the only airline operating scheduled direct flights from Kuala Lumpur to this world class destination!” said Benyamin Ismail, Acting Chief Executive Officer of AirAsia X Berhad. “AirAsia X has carried over 1.5 million passengers between Japan and Malaysia. We are confident this route will also draw more inbound Japanese tourist traffic arriving from Sapporo who are often interested to explore surrounding cities in the region. This direct route will entice them to visit Malaysia and subsequently connect to various destinations in ASEAN and beyond.”

Travellers will be able to make use of the optional Fly-Thru service to connect to flights via the AirAsia Group’s multiple transit hubs with their baggage checked-through to the final destination without the hassle of immigration clearance at the transit hub. With this optional service, passengers can travel seamlessly between all Asian and Australian cities, such as from Indonesia (Bandung, Bali, Jakarta, Medan, Kuala Namu, Surabaya) Singapore and Australia (Melbourne, Gold Coast, Sydney) to Sapporo through Kuala Lumpur, making this beautiful city in Northern Japan just one stop away.

AirAsia X Berhad currently flies from Kuala Lumpur to Japan with 5 times weekly flights to Osaka and daily flights to Tokyo.
