Airlines and Aviation
AirAsia X will launch a nonstop route linking its hub in Kuala Lumpur with the South Australian city of Adelaide. Service will begin in October 2013. There will be easy connections to other travel destinations in Asia.
We have been working hard to attract a low-cost international carrier, and AirAsia X is a very welcome addition," says South Australia Premier Jay Weatherill.
"These low-cost flights - five times a week from the end of November - will make South Australia a more affordable and appealing destination to tourists in our key Asian markets.”
Ties between Australia and China have been growing ever closer in recent years, and the new route should encourage even closer ties in the future.
"AirAsia X's links into China will also help us capitalise on our fastest growing international market," Jay says. "With more affordable international links, we also hope to see more conferences in Adelaide and more international students being visited by family and friends.”
