4 x weekl: Mon/Wed/Fri/Sun. Cheapest fare found is RM203.99 return excluding debit/credit card fee, food and beverage and luggage charge.

 

An interesting note for BBI:

..."AirAsia was selected through competitive bidding to start operations from Odisha. The state government had invited an Expression of Interest (EoI) from the scheduled air carriers for running flights to destinations in South East Asia like Singapore, Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur. To woo the air carriers, the state government had agreed to provide reasonable Viability Gap Funding (VGF) in the form of subsidy grant."

Hopefully this route will last long enough. QZ and XT have launched several route to other cities in Malaysia only to cancel few months later.

Heard that airasia has cancelled the b77w project. Rating cost and long term cost are not efficient. London to be delayed until a350 comes. Group is also studying using a330neo with a onestop in between for a possible earlier launch. Anyone can confirm?

If they had gone ahead with it, it will be a repeat of the A343 mistake.


I think that it would be easier to reconfigure an A333 with more lie flats (maybe 18) and have a larger quiet zone with 2-4-2 seating. That will reduce the load and perhaps enable it to fly to London direct. If not, it will at least be able to get to Paris or Frankfurt to operate a one stop service.

Competing with GA and NH... What equipment? Did they have enough aircraft at the moment?

This would be an Indonesia Airasia X route. They currently have two A330-300's that are leased to AK.

 

This route would relaunch Indonesia Airasia X (which suspended its Australia flights last Sept.) if it is confirmed.

The lease has ended on 16 March 2017, MFM and CMB flights has since returned to A320 fleets.

 

Its been happening for a while now, if anybody noticed there is QZ A320 operating out of KLIA2 doing KUL-JOG-KUL-LOP-KUL-PKU-KUL daily with QZ coded flight and QZ crew based in KUL.

Seems like AK is really short of aircraft - they sold a few planes last year to China owned airlines. But I guess that will be fixed this year - we should have a deluge of deliveries of ceos and neos.

AirAsia X Indonesia to Fly From Bali to Japan


Jakarta. AirAsia X Indonesia, the local branch of Malaysian long-haul budget airline AirAsia X, will start operating direct flights to Tokyo from Denpasar, Bali, on May 24, in a bid to cater to the growing exchange of tourists between Japan and Indonesia.


The announcement came after the airline has secured an approval from the Ministry of Transportation on March 16 and from Japan's Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport, and Tourism.


"We would like to thank both the Japanese and Indonesian ministries, and all other relevant authorities for their support. The launching of this direct flight will contribute to the economies of both countries," AirAsia Indonesia president director Dendy Kurniawan said in a statement on Tuesday (21/03).


The flights will operate four times a week on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday from Denpasar's Ngurah Rai Airport at 11.00 p.m., arriving to Narita Airport in Tokyo at 7.10 a.m. Flights from Tokyo will depart at 8.25 a.m. and reach Denpasar at 2.25 p.m.


On the newly launched route, the airline will operate an A330-300 Airbus with 377 seat, including 12 Premium Flatbed seats.

Just had a look at the AirAsia website... Looks like they will be flying the route daily and booking is open until early 2018! :nea:

 

I wonder how long this daily frequency will last until AK quietly reduces it to 3x or 4x per week, or cancel it altogether...

believed air asia x have 5th freedom to pick up passengers from Osaka to Honolulu. But for Malaysians travelling to US, do not see the market expanding much as firstly its not easy to apply a visa to US and be harder from now with its more detailed vetting as mentioned by trump and secondly the cost for a US visa is like rm700 which is alot to pay for a visa. I do not see air asia x flying to honolulu for long.
