AirAsia X makes KL?London flight daily
From 1 July, AirAsia X will increase the frequency of its flights between London Stansted and Kuala Lumpur to a daily service. Since its inaugural flight in March, the airline has operated five times a week between Stansted and Kuala Lumpur, but passenger demand has led to the introduction of a daily service less than four months after the maiden flight.
The airline notes that the demand has been especially realised from business travellers, taking advantage of low premium (XL) fares, and by students, who are "enjoying the travel opportunities offered by inexpensive long-haul air fares".
AirAsia X CEO Azran Osman-Rani commented, “Our aim has always been to open up travel for all. The popularity of the London–KL route is further testament to the pent-up demand for long-haul travel, provided the fares are low and the quality is high. We knew this service would be popular, but to increase the frequency so soon is beyond our expectations."
