D7 received permission to operate 4x weekly KUL-IST flights to begin in November. Let's see. TK's 3 additional weekly flights seem to be doing really well too. Can't imagine the sudden surge in EU-MY travel.

Good to know. I was starting to think nobody was flying to/from Europe because their airports are chaotic and our country is in shambles!

Seems like AirAsia X is adding two ex-Philippines Airlines A330-343E to their fleet. Both nine years old airframes.

  1. MSN 1467 previously RP-C8784 https://www.planespotters.net/airframe/airbus-a330-300-2-rpca-fly-leasing/rzqlx9

AirAsia X bullish on Australian, New Zealand markets, to add flight frequencies

https://www.theedgemarkets.com/node/642216?

MELBOURNE (Nov 2): AirAsia Aviation Group's medium-haul affiliate airline AirAsia X Bhd (AAX) plans to increase frequencies to both Australia and New Zealand to seven flights per week by the first quarter of next year, reflecting its bullish outlook on its operations there.

AAX chief executive officer Benyamin Ismail said the carrier currently operates three direct flights weekly from Kuala Lumpur to Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Auckland.

The key thing for us right now is to bring back [AAX’s fleet size] to 24 aircraft (the pre-pandemic level). We’re sourcing. Hopefully, we will get that completed in the next few months, and then we can get ready for [new] deliveries to come through,” he said.

 

Wonder who will lease A330s to them, given their previous ugly court battle with various lessors, also highly doubt AirAsia X will take up the conversion charges. AirAsia X now has 12 A330-343 with two more (ex-PR) due for delivery and Thai AirAsia X has six A330-343 with two A330-900neos.

Capital A sells remaining 16.33% stake in AirAsia India to Tata affiliate for RM89m

https://www.theedgemarkets.com/article/capital-sells-remaining-1633-stake-airasia-india-tata-affiliate-rm89m

KUALA LUMPUR (Nov 2): AirAsia Aviation Group Ltd (AAAGL) (formerly known as AirAsia Investment Ltd, or AAIL), the holding company of Capital A Bhd, announced it has sold all its remaining shares in AirAsia (India) Private Ltd (AAI) to Air India Ltd, an affiliate of Tata Sons Pte Ltd (TSL), the holding company of the Tata Group.

In a bourse filing, Capital A said the remaining shares represented 16.33% in AAI. AAAGL is expected to receive a gross proceeds of  INR 1.56 billion (RM89.25 million) from the stakes sale.

“There will be no gain or loss on the disposal as Capital A has marked the remaining 16.33% in AAI to its fair value,” it noted.

AAI was launched in 2014 as a 49:51 joint venture company between AAAGL and Tata Group. In Dec 2020,  AAAGL sold 32.67% in AAI to Tata Group for US$37.66 million, which saw Tata Group raise its stake AAI  to 83.67%.  

“Post the closing of this transaction, AAAGL will not hold any equity interest in AAI and the brand license and technical services agreement between AirAsia Bhd and AAI will be terminated after 12 months from the date of termination of the shareholders agreement between the parties or at an earlier date as may be intimated by AAI,” it said.
