AirAsia X has launched flights between the Low Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT) at Kuala Lumpur's International Airport and Taipei, Taiwan.

The new Kuala Lumpur - Taipei route, operated with 383-seat Airbus A330 aircraft, will offer travellers 5 direct flights weekly.

Dato Sri Ong Tee Keat said, I am proud that the Kuala-Lumpur-Taipei route has finally taken off. Again, AirAsia has made another achievement in Malaysias aviation industry. AirAsias move in promoting connectivity to places beyond Malaysia is seen as an effort to promote more travel and business opportunities for both Malaysians and foreign users. With Taipei added into AirAsias route network, this further strengthens AirAsias foothold in this region and enhance economic ties between the two countries.

AirAsia Group CEO Dato Sri Tony Fernandes, said, Taipei has great history, culture and is famed as a food paradise. The city embraces modernity while retaining its traditions and old world charm which I anticipate would be highly popular for both business and leisure travelers.

We expect to see excellent traffic from Asia, Europe and Australia feeding into our flights connecting to Taipei via our hub in Kuala Lumpur. And similarly, we look forward to welcoming passengers from Taiwan into Malaysia connecting them to destinations on our extensive route network across ASEAN countries, as well as to Australia, China, India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and Europe.
