Rejoice wanderlusts, because our favorite budget airline is planning on offering flights to Frankfurt and London from as low as RM715!
But not only that, the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) also gave clearance to Air Asia X to fly to the US!
Air Asia X will soon be offering direct flights to London from KLIA2 WITHOUT the need to transit. While customers who wish to fly to Frankfurt would get direct flights from Bangkok! So if you’re travelling from KLIA2, you’ll get to transit at Bangkok! Quick party stop anyone?
Air Asia CEO Tony Fernandes explained to the press,
“I would like to offer them for even less. Due to the low oil prices, we could even afford to set the airfare as low as €150 (RM715).”
“We are keen on attracting more Europeans to come to holiday in Southeast Asia as well as to help Asians who wish to explore Europe. We see this as a mutual market.”
Air Asia X’s CEO Datuk Kamarudin Meranun told the press,
“As part of our expansion plans, we are also looking to resume our very popular London route, and are working towards securing the necessary approvals.”
But aside from European countries, Malaysians can now budget-travel to the great America again.
Air Asia X just got clearance to fly to the US so now the airline is considering flights to hot spots like Hawaii, Reuters reported.
“Our expansion up until now has concentrated on Asia, Australasia and the Middle East, and we are excited about our first foray into an entirely new market as we look beyond Asia Pacific.”
“I’m confident travellers will respond well to our award-winning service and the kind of connectivity we can offer with our Fly-Thru product.”
Also, the awesome thing is, they are the very first to offer such a service in Asia.
“The airline is the first Asian low-cost carrier to secure approval to operate scheduled passenger flights to the US.”
Currently, AirAsia X serves 23 long-distance destinations.
Asia: Tokyo, Osaka, Sapporo, Seoul, Busan, Taipei, Xian, Beijing, Hangzhou, Chengdu, Shanghai, Chongqing, New Delhi and Kathmandu.
Australia: Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Gold Coast.
New Zealand: Auckland.
Middle East: Jeddah, Tehran and Muscat.
I think a ton of Malaysians are super grateful towards the Air Asia group for making traveling affordable. Thank you Air Asia
