AirAsia X to operate Sydney services
Sydney, January 30, 2012
 

AIRASIA X will introduce direct flights from Kuala Lumpur to Sydney’s Kingsford Smith International Airport starting April 1, 2012.

 

The Kuala Lumpur-Sydney route will be operated daily, using an Airbus A330-300 aircraft with 12 premium flatbed and 365 economy seats.

 

“Australia is a key market for AirAsia X and the Sydney route has long been a priority due to strong demand from travellers across the globe especially Asia,” said AirAsia X CEO, Azran Osman-Rani.

 

Sydney, AirAsia X’s fourth destination in Australia after the Gold Coast, Melbourne and Perth, will also be available for fly-thru bookings from Indonesia (Bali, Medan, Surabaya, Jakarta), Thailand (Bangkok, Phuket), Singapore and Vietnam (Ho Chi Minh City), allowing passengers to seamlessly purchase two flight sectors and connect via Kuala Lumpur.

 

Destination NSW CEO, Sandra Chipchase said: “Destination NSW in conjunction with Sydney Airport, Tourism Australia and AirAsia X will be investing in a two-year marketing and promotion plan for the new AirAsia X Kuala Lumpur to Sydney route.”
