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

“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.
