AirAsia X to boost Tokyo services
Sepang, February 2, 2012
 

AIRASIA X will hike the frequency on its Kuala Lumpur-Tokyo Haneda route from three flights weekly to six weekly, effective March 23. The carrier will up the services to a daily starting June 22.

 

The frequency hike is part of AirAsia X’s realignment strategy, which will focus on increasing services to its core markets in Australasia, China, Taiwan, Japan, and South Korea (TTG Asia e-Daily, January 13, 2012), the airline said in a statement.

 

AirAsia X CEO, Azran Osman-Rani, said: “The increase in flights to and from Tokyo is in response to the growing demand for the sector, which continues to see steady increase in passenger traffic and yields.”

 

The move to boost Japan services follows AirAsia X’s recent announcement of Sydney flights starting April 1 (TTG Asia e-Daily, January 30, 2012). The carrier also operates four-weekly to Osaka (Kansai).
