Melbourne welcomes low-cost carrier AirAsia X
Melbourne Airport welcomes another airline with low-cost international carrier AirAsia X commencing services today with their inaugural flights to and from Melbourne.
The long-haul budget carrier will commence services flying direct between Melbourne and Kuala Lumpur four times per week, providing opportunities for increased business and leisure travel between Malaysia and Victoria.
Melbourne Airport CEO Chris Woodruff said that the AirAsia X services were a major win for both Victoria and Tasmania. "The important role direct international air services provide to Melbourne and Victoria cannot be understated," said Mr Woodruff.
Melbourne currently has a third of the market share of Malaysian visitors to Australia, the largest of any Australian state and these additional flights to and from Kuala Lumpur will only serve this market better.
"AirAsia X's services to Kuala Lumpur will provide increased direct access to a range of Asian and European markets. Not only will the new services offer more travel options to Victorians, but they will give greater opportunities for Tasmanians to utilize current connections to Melbourne and then fly international direct on budget flights."
AirAsia X has also announced plans to increase services to daily return flights during the peak season.
