New Delhi : With the successful take-off of its maiden flight, AirAsia X now connects New Delhi directly to Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur.
With the airline offering rates as low as Rs. 13k, it is sure pose a competition for other companies. The inaugural flight, D7183, operated by AirAsia X Berhad on an Airbus A330, which flew with over 90 percent of the seats occupied is testimony to the same.
AirAsia X Chief Executive Officer, Benyamin Ismail on Thursday expressed his excitement in celebrating the return of AirAsia X flights to New Delhi.
“We now have stronger foundation to be in this 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. Moving forward, we plan to provide even greater connectivity to Australia and North Asia via Kuala Lumpur from this capital city,” said Ismail as he addressed a gathering at the launch of the new flight.
“In 2015, our affiliates Malaysia AirAsia and Thai AirAsia carried over one million guests in and out of India, and with AirAsia X’s entry into this market, we can provide even more connectivity for our Indian guests to the rest of Asia and Australia through our extensive route network, especially through our Fly-Thru product,” he added.
New Dehli is the low-cost airline’s 19th destination across Asia, Australia, New Zealand and Middle East. (ANI)
