Malaysian-based low-cost airline AirAsia will boost services between Kuala Lumpur and Melbourne by offering two return flights daily.
From February 2, AirAsia will increase its frequencies to Kuala Lumpur to 14 flights weekly in response to increased passenger demand.
To celebrate the extra flights, AirAsia is offering fares from Melbourne to Kuala Lumpur from $119* one way. The sale runs until November22 for the travel period between February 2 and 28 and July 2 and 30.
AirAsia X GM Australia Darren Wright said the increased service will not only give passengers better two-way connectivity, but will reduce transit times when connecting to further destinations and beyond including London, China and the Middle East and other routes serviced by AirAsia’s growing network.
“We’re delighted with the success of the Kuala-Lumpur – Melbourne route and there’s no better way to celebrate our new double daily flights than with a sale starting from $119* one way.”
