Low-cost carrier AirAsia X today announced its return to New Zealand, launching flights to Auckland from Kuala Lumpur via Australia’s Gold Coast beginning Mar 22, 2016.
AirAsia X is currently offering a promotion of all-in fares from RM499 for economy seats to RM1,499 for Premium Flatbed seats (both only applicable for one-way travel). Customers may book these promotional fares from Jan 13 to 24, 2016, for the travel period of March 22, 2016 to Feb 5, 2017.
An Airbus A330-300 aircraft will be used on the route with a seating capacity of 377.
In April 2011 Air Asia launched a four-times weekly service to Christchurch, but withdrew in May the following year as it focused on its Asian network and Australia.
