Affiliated to Asia’s largest low-cost carrier – AirAsia, AirAsia X (operated by Fly Asian Xpress) is ready to fly out of KLIA this September 8!
Australia will most likely be its first destination. The first long-haul low-cost carrier in South-east Asia (excluding Hong Kong) will either fly to Avalon, near Melbourne or to Adelaide.
A day later on September 9, Jetstar – the low-cost subsidiary of Qantas – will start its operations from Sydney to KL.
Indeed, this will be a new chapter in Asia’s aviation.
