AirAsia Malaysia has started additional daily flights between Malaysia and Perth, Western Australia, doubling the frequency from seven to 14 weekly flights. This expansion marks the airline’s first route to Australia, adding over 3,000 weekly seats through Perth Airport.

AirAsia X is expanding its service with new daily flights to complement the existing daily flights between Kuala Lumpur and Perth. These flights are on the A330 widebody aircraft and currently offer over 5,200 seats weekly through Perth, Western Australia’s major gateway airport.

Airbus A321neo’s Longer Range Makes Flights From Malaysia To Perth Possible

AirAsia Aviation Group CEO, Bo Lingam said: “AirAsia Malaysia is thrilled to launch its first ever route to Australia. Perth is an incredibly popular destination for our guests for leisure, visiting friends and family, education and due to its close proximity to Southeast Asia – with Malaysia being a top five destination of origin last year. Conversely Asia is one of the most popular destinations of choice for West Australians for affordable and unique, culturally diverse travel experiences. 

“We are confident these new services operated by AirAsia Malaysia will be popular – our inaugural flight to Perth was 95% full which is a great sign of things to come.

“Thanks to the addition of new model aircraft like the A321neo with longer range capabilities (over five hours) and numerous operational efficiency, we are able to make these new services a reality on a narrowbody aircraft from Kuala Lumpur.

“With over 300 new specification aircraft on order for the AirAsia Group, we look forward to reviewing more services to Australia in the future including places we have never flown before, which will be announced in due course.

The Most Capacity AirAsia Group Has Added To Western Australia

“With todays’ announcement, this is the most capacity the AirAsia Group including affiliate medium haul airline AirAsia X, has ever had into West Australia which is now the fastest growing destination in Australia with over 15,000 visitor seats flown weekly or nearly 800,000 annually, through Perth Airport,” Lingam concluded.

AirAsia Malaysia’s new service between Perth and Kuala Lumpur offers more options for travel between Western Australia and Malaysia’s capital. Malaysia is Western Australia’s fourth biggest international visitor market. It contributed $99 million to the WA economy in visitor expenditure for the year ending in September 2023.

“We’ve got strong business, education, trade, and tourism links with Malaysia, and this new non-stop service provides further opportunities by adding more than 170,000 new seats annually to the Perth market. We look forward to building a strong partnership with AirAsia Malaysia, to ensure the success of this service,” Perth Airport Chief Commercial and Aviation Officer Kate Holsgrove said.
