AirAsia X, the pioneering long-haul low-cost carrier is celebrating its 9th birthday with a string of anniversary specials which include promotional seats with base fares starting from RM99* one-way and daily flights giveaway.

Benyamin Ismail, CEO of AirAsia X Berhad says, “We have expanded our operations rapidly since our humble beginning in 2007. We are now covering 23 destinations across 4 continents and grew our fleet to 30 Airbus A330-300 with over 19 million guests flown, and we did it all within a decade! This is definitely no mean feat and we couldn’t have done it without the dedication of our Allstars and the unwavering support from our loyal guests.”

We hope to make our 9th anniversary memorable with 99,999 promo seats starting from just RM99* base fare one-way for our guests to mirror the launch fare when we first operated our maiden route to Gold Coast, realising everyone’s dream to fly even after 9 years. To top it all off, we even commissioned an aircraft with a special anniversary livery dedicated for our guests and Allstars, as they are both the driving forces behind the airline.”

“The past nine years are not without its turbulences for AirAsia X, but I believe that we have been through the worst and are now reaping what we have sowed from our on-going turnaround initiatives. Returning to the black for 3 consecutive quarters is just a start; with solid hard work of the team and every Allstar we are confident to achieve full-year profit and take the airline to greater heights. Special thanks to our business partners, airport authorities, and tourism bodies who believed in us and supported us in our journey, including our AirAsia X Allstars who have made this dream possible,” added Benyamin.
