To mark the opening for sale of the new route, AirAsia X is offering promotional all-in fares from MYR199 (KRW60,000) in Economy Class, and from MYR699 (KRW349,000) in Premium Class for flights between Kuala Lumpur and Busan one way.

These special fares are available online for booking from 17 April (time: 00:00 Malaysia/0:100 Korea) to 28 April 2013 for travel between 15 July 2013 and 30 April, 2014.

Azran Osman-Rani, Chief Executive Officer, AirAsia X, said, We estimate that more than 60% of AirAsia X passengers to and from Busan will be first time visitors, which will contribute significantly to tourism growth, allowing AirAsia X the opportunity to open up new market segments from Malaysia and Busan with its affordable fares. Guests from Malaysia and surrounding regions may also fly to Busan via Kuala Lumpur hub or use Busan as a gateway to beautiful Jeju Island which is only an hour away by flight.
