AirAsia X operated its inaugural Kuala Lumpur-Adelaide service on October 31, marking the start of its year-round four-weekly schedule. The airline is the only one to offer a direct low-cost service between Malaysia and Adelaide.

The airline said it has been encouraged by demand for the new route, with the inaugural flight operating at a load factor in excess of 80 per cent. The service is operated using A330-300s with a seat capacity of 377.

South Australian travellers will be able to fly to onward destinations through AirAsiaX’s Kuala Lumpur hub using the airline’s popular Fly-Thru transfer service, allowing easy connections through KL’s Low Cost Carrier Terminal. Fly-Thru destinations available from Adelaide are: Chengdu in China; Bali, Jakarta, Medan, Bandung and Surabaya in Indonesia; Osaka in Japan; Kota Kinabalu, Kuching, Langkawi and Penang in Malaysia; Singapore; Seoul and Busan in South Korea; Taipei in Taiwan; Bangkok and Phuket in Thailand; and Ho Chi Minh in Vietnam.
