AirAsia to transition Melbourne services to Avalon Airport

KUALA LUMPUR, July 10, 2018

AirAsia X has confirmed it will transition its twice-daily Melbourne services from Tullamarine Airport to Avalon Airport -  Victoria's second international airport - from December 5.

“Our target is to carry half a million guests in the first year of operation, and we’re already reviewing other exciting destinations we could potentially launch from Avalon in the future,” said AirAsia X CEO Benyamin Ismail.

"As the flagship carrier to launch international services from Avalon Airport, this is a game changer for consumers, for tourism and for the industry.

"We're confident that our great value fares to and from Melbourne, will prove popular with Australians wanting to fly to KL or connect to our global network of 130 popular leisure destinations and conversely, Asean will benefit from consistently affordable and convenient access to Victoria," he added.

“To celebrate, we have put airfares on sale to Melbourne (Avalon Airport) starting from only RM199 ($49.3) all-in one-way which is the lowest ever seen on this route from AirAsia," Ismail said.

The special Melbourne fares are available for booking online from now until July 15, for travel from December 5 to August 13, 2019. - TradeArabia News Service
