AirAsia X, the long-haul low-fare affiliate of AirAsia, has announced an increase in the frequency of its flights from Kuala Lumpur to Kathmandu, Nepal, from its current two flights weekly to three flights weekly, effective 15 September 2012.
The additional flight is in response to encouraging demand from customers in south-east Asia and beyond. In conjunction with the added frequency, AirAsia X is offering promotional fares from RM 399 on the route. Fares are available online, until sold out, for travel between 4 September and 22 May 2013.
The Kuala Lumpur–Kathmandu service, which commenced on 3 July 2012, was initially launched for sale via selected sales agents in Malaysia and Kathmandu. The airline opened the route for online bookings on 10 July in response to encouraging feedback and demand from its customers.
Azran Osman-Rani, CEO of AirAsia X, said, “AirAsia X is responding to the strong and growing travel demand to and from Kathmandu. Since we launched sales, demand has been positive and the added frequency would only provide our guests with better travel and flight options. Guests from the surrounding region may now explore Kathmandu’s heritage and natural attractions. Similarly, guests from Nepal will have a better travel option to travel to our strong network across south-east Asia and beyond.”
