AirAsia X to Almost Double Flights Between KL and Gold Coast of Australia

[HD video below] AirAsia X has confirmed that it will increase flights between Kuala Lumpur and the Gold Coast in Australia to eleven per week from daily flights effective 1 July 2016.

AirAsia X Chief Executive Officer Benyamin Ismail said the increase reflects the success of the route and demand for affordable long haul travel between Asia and Australia.

We are pleased to increase these services and provide additional flight options and convenience for our guests, Mr Ismail said. The four additional weekly services strengthens our long standing relationship with Gold Coast Airport and also our successful strategy in developing under-served markets.

Gold Coast Airport Chief Operating Officer, Ms Marion Charlton, said, AirAsia X has played a key role in delivering affordable air travel to and from South East Queensland since they commenced services to Gold Coast Airport in 2007. The increase to 11 services per week will provide an additional 78,000 inbound seats per year which is great news for the local tourism industry. The Gold Coast Kuala Lumpur service is vital for the Gold Coast as it improves connectivity with major international markets including China and India via Kuala Lumpur as a hub.
