Abu Dhabi is new Mideast hub for AirAsia's long-haul carrier

01 August 2009

KUALA LUMPUR: AirAsia's Group CEO Tony Fernandes has confirmed that Abu Dhabi will be the new Middle East hub for its long-haul carrier AirAsia X.

Having a hub means that the carrier will be able to base its planes outside Kuala Lumpur, and it will not be limited to servicing destinations within an eight-hour radius from the Malaysian capital.

This will allow its network to extend to North Africa and Europe, as it can use the Middle East port as a stopover.
