AirAsia X to expand further in China

BEIJING: AirAsia X, which will launch its inaugural direct flight to Beijing next month, aims to expand its network further into China.

“Our guests from Beijing have been waiting for years and we are able to finally meet the robust demand for this exciting destination,” AirAsia group head of commercial Kathleen Tan said at the official launching of the direct flight here.

“Our entry into Beijing is another major milestone for us.”

With the direct flight to Beijing, the airline would suspend its Tianjin route in late June.

AirAsia X will fly four times a week from its hub in Kuala Lumpur to Beijing Capital International Airport effective June 22. It will also start offering daily direct flights to Beijing from August 6. - Bernama
