  • AirAsia X began flights between Kuala Lumpur (KUL) and Jaipur (JAI) on 5 February. The low-cost long-haul operator will serve the 3,841-kilometre airport pair four times weekly with A330s and faces no direct competition. “India is one of our key growth markets, and we can build a stronger foothold here. We now fly to two destinations in the world-renowned Golden Triangle with the addition of the Jaipur flights to our existing Delhi services,” said Datuk Kamarudin Meranun, AirAsia Executive Chairman and AirAsia X Group CEO. “This latest route addition brings the total weekly flights connecting Malaysia to India under the AirAsia Group to 110 and a total capacity including AirAsia X to 22,755 seats. This new service to Jaipur is part of our goal to meet the growing demand for regional connectivity to tier-two cities in India. Through the increase in flight operations from airports in tier-two and tier-three cities, India’s regional connectivity will be enhanced. We expect this new route to boost passenger growth between Malaysia, India and the region.”
