AirAsia X to fly no frills from London to Kuala Lumpur

The first low cost long-haul route connecting Asia and UK has launched, easing the pockets of backpackers, holidaymakers and businessmen alike.As most airlines are tightening their belts and increasing prices, Air Asia X, an associate of Air Asia, has launched a cheap London Stansted-Kuala Lumpur flight allowing travellers to access Asia without paying premium prices.

Initially operating five flights a week the airline aims to connect the UK with the whole of Asia and the route is already popular amongst travellers taking the ‘Kangaroo route’ between Australia and Europe.

AirAsia X Chief Executive Officer, Azran Osman-Rani, said, “Stansted connects practically all of Europe to AirAsia X, allowing us to open up an amazing range of exotic, tropical, cultural and cosmopolitan destinations across Asia Pacific to suit everyone’s pocket.”

Using Kuala Lumpur as a hub passengers can then access a further 64 destinations such as Bangkok, Ho Chi Minh City and Bali for as little as £10, and on to Australia for under £100.

Commercial & Development director BAA Stansted, Nick Barton said: “Advance bookings on this new non-stop service prove how popular it is set to be, particularly with business and leisure passengers seeking affordable long-haul travel options.”

The economy promotional fare of £99 sold out within 48 hours and regular fares at £149 and £199 one way have been selling fast. Business class seats start at £699.

Anon: Thanks! Unfortunately, I have only flew once with Air Asia, from KL-Kuala Terengganu so I don't think my opinion will carry alot of weight.

Having said that, my first and only experience with Air Asia was a pleasant one.
