Inline images 1

Malaysian low-cost long haul carrier AirAsia X has just announced its fifth Australian destination, with new services to launch between Kuala Lumpur and Adelaide effective from 30 Oct this year.

The move follows an expansion of bilateral capacity between Australia and Malaysia, with the new route to operate four times per week utilising a new Airbus A330-300 aircraft with capacity for 377 passengers.

AirAsia X ceo Azran Osman-Rani announced the move in Adelaide alongside SA premier Jay Weatherill and tourism minister Leon Bignell.

Launch fares lead in at just $99 one way in economy class or $599 in the AirAsia X flatbed-equipped premium cabin, and can be booked now. 

"Australia is one of our core markets where AirAsia X will see its wings expand, and the Adelaide route has been a priority," Osman-Rani said.

"Our goal since launching our first Australian service on the Gold Coast in 2007 was to operate in the five major states, and we are proud to have accomplished this within six years," he added.

Tourism Australia md Andrew McEvoy hailed the move, saying "AirAsia X's track record suggests that they will significantly grow the number of visitors from Malaysia and the region".
