Following the resumption of passenger services to Sydney, Australia in February, AirAsia X (AAX) is expanding its flight network from Kuala Lumpur with new services to Incheon (Seoul), South Korea, and New Delhi, India commencing on 20 April 2022.
Flights to Incheon (Seoul) will initially be operated weekly on Wednesdays and returning on Thursdays. Flights to New Delhi will resume twice weekly on Wednesdays and Sundays returning on the same days. Both services are on sale now for travel between 20 April 2022 to 30 June 2022, with additional services to be added in the near future.
Guests with outstanding bookings or unused credit during the pandemic will be able to use these for future bookings, by updating their original flight booking for future travel or by utilizing their credit account to book the flights.
CEO of AirAsia X Benyamin Ismail said: “After two long years, we are thrilled to return to the skies once again with the best value airfares for medium-haul travel. Now that the world is finally opening up, we are gradually resuming flights to our key markets, starting with Sydney recently and now also to South Korea and India, with more popular destinations to be announced soon. We are confident our return to these markets will be well received, particularly for those longing to visit friends and family again or for much-anticipated leisure travel.
“With Malaysia’s international border reopening last week on 1 April, and quarantine free travel both ways on our new services, it is also the perfect time to welcome back international tourists, providing a significant boost to the nation’s tourism sector and the economy, as we did pre-pandemic.
“We continue to prioritize putting our guests first and while we were unable to fly for the past two years due to the unprecedented effects of the pandemic, we are pleased to confirm that anyone with outstanding bookings or Credit Accounts can now use these to book our new services. We are also preparing travel vouchers for our guests who have unutilized credit, to use for future bookings, which will be announced in the near future. We thank our guests for their patience and understanding and cannot wait to welcome everyone back on board soon!”
