No one thought low cost, long haul could be done successfully, so it was truly a pioneering flight from Kuala Lumpur to the Gold Coast five years ago, AirAsia marketing manager, Stuart Myerscough, said. Not only are we the worlds first low cost, long haul airline, our strong network of destinations, low cost base and new efficient aircraft has made us world leaders in what we do having been named the Worlds Best Low Cost Airline over the past four years. So to celebrate five successful years in Australia we have all the low fares you could wish for.
