AirAsia X has launched flights between Kuala
Lumpur and the Japanese city of Sapporo.
Flights to the New Chitose International Airport
are the airline’s 3rd destination in Japan, after Tokyo-Haneda and
Osaka-Kansai from Kuala Lumpur.
To celebrate the launch, AirAsia X is offering
promotional all-in-fares from RM349 one way for standard seats or
RM1,299 one way for the Premium Flatbed seats. These promotional
fares are available for online booking until 18 October 2015 for
travel before 3 January 2016.
Benyamin Ismail, Chief Executive Officer of
AirAsia X Berhad, said, “Japan is one of our core markets in the Asia Pacific region and we
are very proud to introduce another unique route connecting Kuala
Lumpur directly into Northern Japan. The healthy load factor of
90% for our inaugural flight and the growing forward bookings we
have received gives us confidence that this route will thrive. We
are proud to be the connection between both cities and look
forward to work together with all relevant parties to draw in
connecting passengers from all over Asia, Australia and beyond
Guests can also 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 the optional Fly-Thru service, guests can now travel
to Sapporo seamlessly from most cities, such as from Indonesia
(Bandung, Bali, Jakarta, Medan, Kuala Namu, Surabaya), Singapore
and Australia (Melbourne, Gold Coast, Sydney) to Sapporo through
