AirAsia announce extra Gold Coast flights to meet demand

31 July 2009

AirAsia have added a further two weekly return flights on its Kuala Lumpur-Gold Coast route due to demand, the carrier announced Thursday.

The additional flights will start from October 21, increasing from the existing four flights a week to six.

To celebrate AirAsia is offering sale fares from $149 ex Gold Coast to Malaysia available for booking from now until 9 August 2009 for travel between 20 October 2009 and 10 January 2010.

Fares include include airport taxes with no extra charge for administration or fuel surcharges.

“For the Gold Coast market alone, our passenger traffic grew by almost 15 per cent in the first half of 2009 versus the same period in 2008” said AirAsia X Chief Executive Azran Osman-Rani.

He said the increased growth the carrier was experiencing had proved that it was not a seasonal holiday route, as it is widely believed by skeptics.

“Loads have been consistently strong year-round and this has given us confidence to increase our capacity by 50 per cent with our two additional weekly flights.”
