AirAsia X has further expanded its network in Asia Pacific by adding a new route to South Korea’s second largest city, Busan. This is its second destination in South Korea, with the first being Seoul! AirAsia X will be offering four flights a week between Gimhae International Airport, Busan, and the Low-Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT) from 15th July 2013. It would be using the Airbus A330-300 aircraft with 12 premium flatbed seats and 365 economy seats.
AirAsia X CEO Azran Osman Rani said the airline’s entry into Busan was in line with the strategy of adding flight frequencies and destinations to priority Asia Pacific markets:
We estimate that more than 60 per cent of AirAsia X passengers using this route will be first-time visitors, which will contribute significantly to tourism growth, allowing AirAsia X the opportunity to open up new market segments from Malaysia and Busan with affordable fares.
The airline will be offering launch fares to Busan from Kuala Lumpur from as low as RM199 (economy) and RM699 (premium flatbeds). Online bookings are available from today to 28th April 2013 for travel between 15th July 2013 and 30th April 2014 next year.
