AirAsia X ups flight frequency to Australia, Taiwan

SEPANG (March 14): AirAsia X, the long-haul and low-fare unit of AIRASIA BHD [], will increase its flight frequency from Kuala Lumpur to Taipei and Perth as part of its network realignment strategy announced earlier this year.

It said the additional frequencies would see current daily flights to Taipei increasing to 11 a week from June 22 and to Perth to nine flights a week effective June 24.

"AirAsia X remains focused in strengthening its core market network in Australia, Japan, South Korea, China, Taiwan and Iran where it can build a leadership position in the long-haul and low-cost aviation sector this year," it said in a statement.

AirAsia X Chief Executive Officer Azran Osman-Rani said they are responding to the strong and growing travel demand to and from Australia and Taiwan.

"The demand for travel to Perth and Taipei recorded strong average passenger loads in excess of 85 per cent last year," he said.

Azran said the additional flights would open up new horizons for commercial activities and boost tourism in the Asean region, Australia and Taiwan.
