AirAsia launching tax-only fares

08 June 2010

Budget carrier AirAsia X is offering return fares from Australia to the UK from under $240 as part of a 48-hour sale.

The tax-only fares apply on routes across the entire AirAsia X network covering Malaysia and beyond.

The booking period for 'The World’s Best Sale' promotion runs for 48 hours only from June 9 to 10 for travel between October 11 and November 14, 2010. The online sale starts at 2am EST Wednesday June 9, 12.01am WST.

AirAsia X says the sale celebrates it's being named the 2010 World’s Best Low Cost Airline in the annual World Airline Survey by Skytrax, for the second consecutive year.

Fares include London (Stansted) via Kuala Lumpur and back from the Gold Coast from $217, from Perth from $235 and from Melbourne from $240.

These total fares to London and back to Australia are available by purchasing one way sale fares in each direction from either Gold Coast, Perth or Melbourne to Kuala Lumpur, then from KL on to the UK.

From just $10 passengers can also fly one way from Kuala Lumpur to a range of other destinations including Hangzhou, Tianjin, Taipei, Mumbai and New Delhi.

“This is undoubtedly The World’s Best Sale from the World’s Best Low Cost Airline but it’s only for 48 hours so you’ll have to get in quick,” AirAsia General Manager Australia Darren Wright said.

“Guests will have to pay only the taxes on these seats, making flying to London and back just as cheap as, or even cheaper than, a return domestic flight at home."
