AirAsia X to Launch Kuala Lumpur - Jeju Flights

AirAsia X has unveiled plans to launch flights between Kuala Lumpur and Jeju, South Korea.

 The airline will operate the route four times per week from 12 December 2017.

AirAsia X CEO, Benyamin Ismail, said, “South Korea is an important market and we have seen tremendous growth from our existing routes to Seoul and Busan which will now be complemented by our new service to Jeju, saving our guests the hassle of domestic transit to the island province. This new route will provide additional over 150,000 capacity annually and will be a significant boost to strengthen business and tourism ties between Malaysia and South Korea.”

Travellers will be able to make use of AirAsia's Fly-Thru service to connect seamlessly to Jeju from other cities within AirAsia and AirAsia X’s extensive flight network with just one additional stop, or utilise the multi-city option to explore Jeju together with Busan or Seoul before flying back to Kuala Lumpur.
