KUALA LUMPUR (Aug 17): AirAsia X Bhd (AAX), the long-haul, low-cost affiliate of AirAsia Group Bhd, has started four times weekly flights between Kuala Lumpur and Amritsar, India, bringing the total number of destinations served by the AirAsia Group in India to 22.
“Following a recent network review, Amristar and other cities in India were identified as being underserved from the Asia Pacific region, particularly when it comes providing affordable long-haul travel. We are confident the new services will prove popular for both tourist and domestic visitors alike,” AAX chief executive officer Benyamin Ismail said in a statement today.
To celebrate the new service, AAX is offering promotional all-in fares from RM299 one-way on standard seats runs from Aug 16 to 26 for travel period between Aug 16, 2018 and Jan 31, 2019.
The new flights bring the number of AirAsia Group services between Malaysia and India to 85 weekly.
Since 2008, AirAsia has carried more than 19 million passengers across 21 cities in India, including more than 300,000 guests on its long-haul network to New Delhi and Jaipur.
