AIRASIA X will increase its flight frequency from Kuala Lumpur to Taipei and Perth in June as part of its strategic shift to focus on key markets.
Services to Taipei will be increased from daily at present to eleven flights a week starting June 22, while services to Perth will be raised from daily to nine flights a week from June 24, the airline said in a statement.
AirAsia X CEO Azran Osman-Rani said: “AirAsia X is responding to the strong and growing travel demand to and from Taiwan and Australia. The demand for travel to Perth and Taipei recorded strong average passenger loads in excess of 85 per cent in 2011.”
“The additional flights will open up new horizons for commercial activities and boost tourism in the ASEAN region, Taiwan and Australia. We are confident that the network realignment plan (will) strategically expand our growth in Australia and Taiwan.”
