AirAsia X has unveiled plans to launch direct flights between Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and Narita Airport in Japan.
AirAsia X will operate the route with four flights per week, delivering over 156,000 additional visitor seats through Narita Airport annually.
The flights, subject to government approval, are scheduled to launch on Nov 20.
“Our guests can now fly from Kuala Lumpur to Tokyo, Japan, either through Narita Airport or Haneda Airport, giving them more flexibility on flight times and connectivity,” said AirAsia X Malaysia CEO, Benyamin Ismail. “These new services are in response to overwhelming consumer demand and ahead of what will be a big year for Tokyo tourism in 2020. Operating from two airports in Tokyo with different flight times will also entice more Fly-Thru guests connecting from other cities within our global network, whilst at the same time, providing Malaysians more flight options to travel to Japan’s capital and largest city.”
AirAsia currently operates seven weekly flights between Kuala Lumpur and Tokyo - Haneda, as well as 21 weekly flights between Bangkok - Don Mueang and Tokyo - Narita.
Japan will this year host the Rugby World Cup while in 2020 Tokyo will host the Olympic Games.© Asia Travel Tips
