AirAsia X has announced it will offer direct flights between Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and Beijing, China. The new route will begin on June 22, 2012, with four flights per week.
AirAsia rep Kathleen Tan said: “China is a key market for AirAsia X, and our entry into Beijing is another major milestone for us.”
“We are confident travel demand to Beijing will be strong and hope many will take the opportunity to visit Malaysia and use AirAsia as a gateway to the many exotic, far-flung destinations across the region.”
As a result of this new route, AirAsia X will be suspending its route from Kuala Lumpur to Tianjin, China, which is about 100 km from Beijing, effective June 21, 2012.
