AirAsia X will be increasing flight frequencies to Australia and Taipei from 1 December 2011 to 31 January 2012 to cater for expected increased demand during the peak holiday season. Services between Kuala Lumpur and Melbourne will increase from 10 to 12 flights per week, while those to the Gold Coast will rise from five to six flights per week. Perth services will increase from daily to 10 flights per week, and the frequency to Taipei will be boosted from daily to 11 weekly flights.
The low-cost, long-haul airline’s Chief Executive Officer, Azran Osman-Rani said; “AirAsia X’s decision to increase our flight frequencies is timely with the holiday season and this shows our commitment to our guests as we are doing what we can to accommodate the high demand for our popular routes. Guests who are looking forward to visit Australia during its summer season and Taipei during Chinese New Year have more flexibility in choosing their flight times and date with the boost in our flight frequencies during the peak period.”
AirAsia X added that its supporting operations, such as check-in counters, guest services and baggage handling, will also be ramped up during this period.
