AirAsia X now connects New Delhi direct to Kuala Lumpur, with the successful take-off of its maiden flight. The airline now provides Indians with better connectivity, low-fares and high-value service into the capital city of Malaysia.
The inaugural flight D7183 operated by AirAsia X Berhad on an Airbus A330 departed on-time at 11.15 pm from Indira Gandhi International Airport last night and a press conference and celebration event was held today in the city to commemorate the entry of AirAsia X into northern India.
The celebration event was graced by His Excellency Datuk Naimun Ashakli Mohammad, High Commissioner of Malaysia to India; Amaran Abdul Rahman, North India Director, Tourism Malaysia and Benyamin Ismail, CEO of AirAsia X Berhad.
AirAsia X is offering promotional all-in-fares from New Delhi to Kuala Lumpur from as low as INR6790* one way for standard seats or from INR29,990* one way for the award-winning Premium Flatbed seats to celebrate the commencement of this four times weekly flight.
These promotional fares are available for online booking from today until 14 February 2016, for the travel period from now until 30 June 2016.

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 most cities in Asia and Australia such as from Sydney, Bali, Phuket or Hong Kong from New Delhi via Kuala Lumpur. Guests can also connect to other cities in Malaysia or Thailand directly from Kuala Lumpur via AirAsia Berhad (flight code AK) or Thai AirAsia’s domestic operations (flight code FD).
Kuala Lumpur has a lot to offer as a travel destination, the colourful cultures from the racial diversity and the vast variety of cuisines available continues to be a draw for people to visit Kuala Lumpur. It is home to the world-famous Twin Towers at the city-centre filled with skyscrapers which will leave you in awe; or drive up to the renowned hill resort Genting Highlands for the cooling weather which is just an hour away from the bustling city.
