A333 9M-XXB AIRASIAX PERTHAirAsia X has announced that it is increasing frequencies on its services from Kuala Lumpur to Melbourne and the Gold Coast.
From February 3, the airline will introduce an additional Wednesday service to Melbourne, lifting its total number of flights each week to 12. “This new service will give passengers better two-way connectivity by reducing transit times when connecting to further destinations and beyond including London, China and the Middle East and other routes serviced by AirAsia’s growing network,” said AirAsia X general manager Australia Darren Wright.

From February 6, the airline will fly daily to the Gold Coast, and follows the airline raising its services to six times per week on October 21. The airline says the move has been driven by strong demand. “We’re delighted with the acceptance of this route. The people of southeast Queensland and northern NSW have voted with their feet and we’ve responded accordingly,” said Wright.

Both services will coincide with the rollout of new lie-flat premium class seating on the airline’s A330 fleet which replaces the XL seats previously offered.
