AirAsia X Adds X-otic Malaysia onto its Fly-Thru Network
AirAsia X, Asia’s leading long haul, low fare airline recently launched its new Fly Thru Service across AirAsia’s domestic sectors in Malaysia, already made available for online bookings effective today.
The launch of the new service across our domestic sectors will facilitate a more convenient transit process for connecting guests across all AirAsia X destinations via its hub in Kuala Lumpur to its selected domestic network in Malaysia.
The enhanced Fly-Thru service is available for all AirAsia X destinations departing from its long haul destinations from China, Taiwan, Australia, Korea and Japan to our renowned domestic destinations in Malaysia namely; Penang, Langkawi, Kota Kinabalu and Kuching. Similarly guests from the new domestic Fly-Thru destinations may also book Fly Thru and connect directly to their final destinations across Australia, China, Taiwan, Korea and Japan via its hub in Kuala Lumpur Low Cost Carrier Terminal.
“With the implementation of the fly-thru services across our domestic network in Malaysia, AirAsia X guests need only clear immigration upon arrival in Kuala Lumpur low cost carrier terminal, and directly proceed to the domestic gate without the hassle of checking in their luggage twice in order to connect to their onward domestic destination in Malaysia “explained Azran Osman-Rani, CEO of AirAsia X.
“Our aim is to ensure seamless travel for connecting guests who prefer to transit in Kuala Lumpur and travel with us to other destinations between the AirAsia X and AirAsia network. The addition of our domestic routes in Malaysia on our Fly Thru service radar would further boost tourism traffic into the country and further promote our popular travel destinations such as Penang, Langkawi, Kota Kinabalu and Kuching, offering guests transit convenience within our group network,” added Azran.
In conjunction with the newly added domestic destinations onto our Fly Thru network, AirAsia X will be offering fares from as low as MYR379 one way from AirAsia X destinations (Australia, Korea, Taiwan, China, Japan) to Penang, Langkawi, Kota Kinabalu and Kuching. The promotional offer is available for online bookings from 26 June to 8 July, 2012 for travel between 18 September to 30 November, 2012.
AirAsia X’s Fly-Thru service allows guests to conveniently book a connecting flight under one booking itinerary. Connecting guest’s check in luggage(s) will be tagged and transferred directly to the final destination. Guests will be able to connect within a shorter time period, with the exemption of transit visas.
“At AirAsia, we are continuously ramping up our efforts to give the best to our guests. We have seen a strong feeder market within our network, and this has encouraged us to review our products and services and offer guests the convenience of connecting seamlessly. Like AirAsia, AirAsia X is always committed to delivering low fares to the people and at the same time ensuring that they enjoy only the best quality service from us,” concluded Azran.
