AirAsia X celebrates the launch of the Delhi service

AirAsia X has relaunched flights to India, with the start of a new direct route between Kuala Lumpur and Delhi.

The Malaysian long-haul low-cost carrier suspended its services to Mumbai and Delhi in 2012, citing high operating costs. But this week the KL-Delhi route was relaunched, with more than 90% of seats on the inaugural flight being filled.

AirAsia X will now operate the route four times a week, with flights departing KLIA every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday at 1900 and arriving in Delhi at 2200. The return services will depart the Indian capital at 2315, arriving back into KL at 0730 the next morning.

The airline will serve the route using its 377-seat, two-class Airbus A330-300 aircraft.

“We are excited to be here today to celebrate the return of AirAsia X flights to New Delhi. We now have stronger foundation to be in this market, complementing the existing route network of our affiliates AirAsia Berhad, Thai AirAsia and AirAsia India, in addition to the growing demand for connectivity between New Delhi and Kuala Lumpur,” said Benyamin Ismail, CEO of AirAsia X.

“In 2015, our affiliates Malaysia AirAsia and Thai AirAsia carried over one million guests in and out of India, and with AirAsia X’s entry into this market, we can provide even more connectivity for our Indian guests to the rest of Asia and Australia through our extensive route network,” he added.

Passengers travelling from Delhi can also utilise the airline’s ‘Fly-Thru’, which offers transfers to destinations including Sydney, Bali, Phuket and Hong Kong, via KL.
