AirAsia X Malaysia CEO, Benyamin Ismail, said, ďOur rapid expansion into Japan continues following the launch of services to Fukuoka and Tokyo Narita earlier this year. Okinawa is an island paradise that offers a different Japanese experience for leisure travellers, including white sandy beaches with clear blue waters, some of the worldís most famous diving spots and unique Ryukyuan cuisine. Like Fukuoka, we are building the foundation for more AirAsia flights to serve Okinawa in the near future, strengthening our regional network and allowing more travellers to discover the unique cultural heritage of this amazing destination.Ē

Travellers from Kuala Lumpur to Okinawa Naha are not required to obtain a visa during their 75-minute stopover in Taipei and may return to their seats after clearing a quick security check of their carry-on bags and inflight belongings.
