AirAsia X is to increase its current flights to Sydney and Melbourne from 12 weekly flights and Perth from its current 9 weekly flights to 14 flights a week.

The double daily flights from Kuala Lumpur to Melbourne will start on 1 October 2013; and to Sydney and Perth on 25 November 2013 effectively.

Overall, the airline has carried over 3.4 million passengers to and from its Australian routes since it began operations in Australia in 2007. Australia contributes over 40% of the airlines total revenue, with an average of 83% passenger load in the first half of 2013, said Azran Osman-Rani, CEO of AirAsia X. We are delighted to increase the current flights to double daily flights on our Australian routes. Our flights from Kuala Lumpur to Sydney, Melbourne and Perth routes have performed extremely well and the new double daily services will help meet increasing demand.

The sale is available for online bookings until 1 September 2013 for the travel period for departures from Kuala Lumpur between 1 October 2013 and 5 August 2014; and Perth and Sydney departures from 25 November 2013 to 5 August 2014.
