New Delhi, Feb 4: AirAsia X today rolled out an all inclusive one-way fare for Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, from here, starting from as low as Rs 6,790, a day after the airline re-launched its flight services in India. AirAsia X is the long-haul arm of the Malaysian airline AirAsia Berhad.
It resumed flight services to Delhi yesterday, four years after discontinuing the route along with Mumbai, citing high airports cost.
"We are excited to be here (again) today. We now have stronger foundation to be in the market, complementing the existing route network of our affiliates AirAsia Berhad, Thai AirAsia and AirAsia India, in addition to the growing demand for connectivity between New Delhi and Kuala Lumpur," AirAsia X Chief Executive Officer Ben Ismail said today.
He said the airline in its second coming would be selling the network unlike point-to-point travel in the past and focus would be on traffic emanating from India for regions such as Australia, North Central Asia, China and Thailand, among others.
"In 2015, our affiliates Malaysia AirAsia and Thai AirAsia carried over one million passengers in and out of India and with AirAsia X's (re) entry into the market, we can provide even more connectivity for our Indian guests to the rest of Asia and Australia through our extensive route network," he added.
AirAsia X is offering promotional all-inclusive fares from New Delhi to Kuala Lumpur, starting from as low as Rs 6,790 for standard (economy) seats and Rs 29,990 for premium flatbed seats, the airline said.
The tickets under the promotional fares scheme can be booked till February 14, starting today for a travel period between February 4th to June 30, 2016, it said.
