AirAsia Malaysia expands its network with its first route to Australia.
AirAsia Malaysia (AK) reached a new milestone in its expansion strategy by introducing its first Australian route to Perth.
Double the number of flights to Perth from Kuala Lumpur with low fares on sale now from less than AUD200* all-in one-way.
Starting 11 March 2024, AirAsia will enhance its flight offerings by adding Perth, Australia, to its destinations. Guests can now enjoy even more travel options between the capital of Western Australia and other destinations. The number of weekly flights will increase from seven to 14. This expansion to Perth demonstrates AirAsia’s dedication to making air travel accessible to all. It reinforces the airline’s position as a leading low-cost airline in Asia.
Seamless Connections with AirAsiaX and New A321neo
AirAsia Malaysia CEO Riad Asmat said: “We are thrilled to announce our very first route to Australia to be operated by AirAsia Malaysia (AK), complementing the daily medium-haul operations currently flown between Perth and Kuala Lumpur by our affiliate airline AirAsia X (AAX). Just as we continue to seamlessly complement AAX’s Fly-Thru connecting services from numerous medium-haul destinations, including from Australia to Asean and beyond. With new specification aircraft models capable of flying beyond the usual four-hour radius, this enhanced range facilitates extended connections between destinations, opening up new possibilities. With the addition of new model A321neo aircraft joining the AirAsia Malaysia fleet, including longer-range capability, we can now make these services to Australia a reality.
“Perth has consistently been one of AirAsia’s most popular destinations, attracting travelers for leisure, tourism, education, and visiting family and friends due to its proximity to Southeast Asia. From 1 January to 30 October 2023, approximately 30,000 guests flew from Malaysia to Perth, with the top five nationalities being Australians, Malaysians, Indians, Chinese, and New Zealanders. Based on increasing demand, we believe now is the right time to expand our network into this new market in West Australia. We also anticipate introducing more routes in the region in the near future.”
