Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Wednesday, 5 August 2009

AirAsia X is responding to the strong and growing demand from travellers with an additional four frequencies weekly between Kuala Lumpur and Melbourne.

Commencing 1 December 2009, AirAsia X will be ramping up its frequencies to Melbourne from seven to eleven flights weekly.

To celebrate the launch of the additional frequencies, AirAsia is offering seats for sale from A$99 ex Melbourne to Malaysia.

Bookings must be made between 6 and 9 August 2009 for travel between 1 December 2009 and 30 April 2010. Promotional seats are limited and available on first-come, first-served basis.

AirAsia X Chief Executive Officer Azran Osman-Rani said, The Kuala Lumpur Melbourne route has been particularly popular for us, with AirAsia carrying almost 100,000 passengers since we first touched down in Melbourne on November 12 last year. In fact, the route shows no sign of weakening with strong forward bookings.

These new additional frequencies would also offer passengers better two-way connectivity by reducing transit times when connecting to further destinations to ASEAN and beyond including London and other routes serviced by AirAsias growing route network.
