AirAsia X Welcomes Increased Competition with Fares from $99*

AirAsia X is welcoming increased competition over the skies of Perth with a red hot fare to Kuala Lumpur from just $99* one way.

The Super Special Deal from Perth to AirAsia X’s Malaysian hub is available for booking for 48 hours only (12-13 December), and valid for travel 13 January to 28 February 2014.

“We think there’s no better way to welcome increased competition over the skies of Perth than with a great, big, super low fare,” AirAsia X Head of International Marketing Stuart Myerscough said. 

“The commencement of more competition in Perth will help stimulate travel for all operators and provide greater choice and lower air fares for travellers.

“AirAsia X has long championed low cost travel and we look forward to seeing increasingly competitive airfares as more players enter the local market.”

AirAsia X last month boosted its flight frequencies from Perth to its hub in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to double daily services, rising from nine flights per week.

The leading low cost airline began services in Perth in November 2008 with six weekly flights.
