AirAsia X now connects Kuala Lumpur direct to New Delhi, India with the successful take-off of its maiden flight. With a flight load over 90 percent, the airline now provides Malaysians with better connectivity, low-fares and high-value service into the capital city of India.

The inaugural flight D7182 operated by AirAsia X Berhad on an Airbus A330 landed on time at 10.00PM (local time in New Delhi) last night and a press conference and celebration event was held today in New Delhi to commemorate the entry of AirAsia X into northern India.

AirAsia X is offering promotional all-in-fares from Kuala Lumpur to New Delhi from as low as RM459* one way for standard seats or from RM999* one way for the award-winning Premium Flatbed seats to celebrate the commencement of this four times weekly flight.

Benyamin Ismail, Chief Executive Officer of AirAsia X Berhad said, “We are excited to be here today, to celebrate the return of AirAsia X flights to New Delhi. We now have stronger foundation to be in this market, complementing the existing route network of our affiliates AirAsia Berhad, Thai AirAsia and AirAsia India, in addition to the growing demand for connectivity between New Delhi and Kuala Lumpur. Moving forward, we plan to provide even greater connectivity to Australia and North Asia via Kuala Lumpur from this capital city.”

“In 2015, our affiliates Malaysia AirAsia and Thai AirAsia carried over 1 million guests in and out of India, and with AirAsia X’s entry into this market, we can provide even more connectivity for our Indian guests to the rest of Asia and Australia through our extensive route network, especially through our Fly-Thru product,” added Benyamin.  

Guests can make use of the optional Fly-Thru service to connect to flights with their baggage checked-through to the final destination without the hassle of immigration clearance at the transit hub. With this optional service, guests can now travel to New Delhi seamlessly from most cities in Asia and Australia such as from Sydney, Bali, Phuket or Hong Kong to New Delhi via Kuala Lumpur. Guests can also connect to other cities in India such as Goa, Bengaluru or Guwahati directly from New Delhi via AirAsia India’s domestic operations (flight code I5).

New Delhi is the capital city of India located at the northern region. Together with the old Delhi, it is said to be one of the oldest existing cities in the world, estimated to be over 5,000 years old. From Hindu Kings, Muslim Sultans to the British Raj, Delhi has been the witness of many cultures over the millennia. Today, it is a modern city with many heritage monuments and architecture wonders worth travelling across the globe for.

Other than the Lotus Temple, The India Gate and The Red Fort, one of the most notable attractions nearby is the famed Taj Mahal located at the neighbouring city of Agra. A white marble mausoleum built by Mughal emperor Shah Jahan for his wife Mumtaz Mahal in 1632, this UNESCO World Heritage building is one of the world’s most celebrated structures.
