AIRASIA'S longhaul affiliate, AirAsia X, has added a fifth Australian destination to its flight network with a new Adelaide link.
Beginning October 30, Singapore residents can fly to Adelaide via Kuala Lumpur, through the AirAsia Fly-Thru service.
AirAsia operates 12 daily flights between Singapore and Kuala Lumpur, and AirAsia X will initially ply the Kuala Lumpur-Adelaide route four times weekly after its launch, and increase the service to daily for the peak December to February period.
The new route will be operated with a 377-seater Airbus A330-300 aircraft.
Speaking at a special ceremony in Adelaide, AirAsia X CEO, Azran Osman-Rani said: “We are thrilled to announce that AirAsia X is finally jetting into Adelaide, which means now every Adelaidian can fly to South-east Asia and beyond and vice versa.”
“Australia is one of our core markets where AirAsia X will see its wings expand and the Adelaide route has been a priority. Our goal since launching our first Australian service on the Gold Coast in 2007 was to operate in the five major states, and we are proud to have accomplished this within six years,” he added.
To celebrate the launch of the new route, AirAsia X is offering fares from Singapore to Adelaide starting from S$149 (US$117) on economy and from S$489 for premium. Promotional fares are available for booking online until August 4, for the travel period October 30, 2013 to August 5, 2014.
