AirAsia X resumes flights between Sydney and Kuala Lumpur

I am a huge admirer of Air Asia and its offshoots.

You get exactly what is promised: cheap fares all over south-east Asia, and decent food on board. 

Now, following a successful restructuring process, AirAsia X is resuming its commercial service between Kuala Lumpur and Sydney starting from February 14.

The airline says it will be prioritising full redemptions for passengers affected by the restructuring. 

Flights will initially be operated weekly on Mondays from Kuala Lumpur to Sydney and returning on Tuesdays from February 14 to March 22. Schedules for the autumn/winter seasons will be announced in mid February.

Fares start from RM1,399 ($460) one way all-inclusive in economy or guests can choose to experience the Premium Flatbed service from RM3,999. 

From Sydney to Kuala Lumpur, fares start from $399 and $1,299 one way. 

Benyamin Ismail, CEO of AirAsia X, said: “Following our travel downtime over the last two years, and the recent completion of our restructuring process, we are thrilled to be able to relaunch and commence our gradual return to the skies. 

"This would not have been possible without the overwhelming support from our guests and creditors and we thank them for their patience and understanding.

“Without any domestic routes AAX has been significantly affected by the pandemic. We now see light at the end of this long tunnel and we are working hard to operate again in all of our key markets, as one of the world’s leading low-cost medium haul operators. 

"Starting with flights to and from Sydney, we will progressively continue to honour outstanding bookings and credit accounts for our guests and creditors in other markets as soon as possible.

“As we anticipate the gradual reopening of international borders around the world in 2022, we are delighted to return to Australia first, as one of our most popular markets. 

"This new weekly service for guests marks a significant milestone for the resumption of our commercial services and will contribute to our growth post-restructuring.

“We look forward to announcing additional new services soon."
