AirAsia X resumes flights between Kuala Lumpur and Osaka


AirAsia X (AAX) has resumed flights between Kuala Lumpur and Kansai Airport (KIX) in Osaka.

The thrice weekly flights to Osaka are expected to carry more than 116,000 travelers between Malaysia and Japan monthly and deliver a welcome boost to both countries’ tourism and business sectors.

“Following the resumption of services from Kuala Lumpur to Tokyo (Haneda) and Sapporo late last year, we have carried close to 30,000 guests between Malaysia and Japan post pandemic,” said AirAsia X Malaysia CEO Benyamin Ismail. “We had a strong passenger load factor for our inaugural flight of more than 95% and we are confident that this route will be very well received despite the competitive landscape. As travel demand rebounds, we will continue to expand our services to exciting destinations in Asia from our regional hubs in Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok.”

As a group, AAX flies to three destinations in Japan namely Tokyo, Osaka and Sapporo from Kuala Lumpur operated by AirAsia X Malaysia (D7) and from Bangkok (Suvarnabhumi) operated by AirAsia X Thailand (XJ).

AirAsia X operates flights with Airbus A330 aircraft in a two-class configuration.

One of many scammed by this airline. About $500 of refund! No emails or chats for 4 months and counting. No proper support, email, support service. Just the app saying work in progress. I just hope this airline be closed and punished by proper authority.
