AirAsia X Restarts Services To Sydney

The move comes after the end of an $8.1 billion restructuring process, with the carrier stating that it will prioritise full redemptions for passengers affected by cancellations. Flights will initially operate once per week, with fares starting at $399 one way or $1,299 in the Premium Flatbed cabin.

Flights will be operated weekly on Mondays from Kuala Lumpur to Sydney, returning on Tuesdays, beginning 14 February 2022 and to 22 March 2022.

Fares from Sydney to Kuala Lumpur start at AU$399 and AU$1,299 one-way all-inclusive of check-in baggage, one meal and one drink.

AirAsia X has stated that it will prioritise complete redemptions for travellers affected by the restructuring. The airline guests may rebook their flights and use their credit cards to do so.

The autumn/winter schedules will be announced in mid-February.

“Following our travel downtime over the last two years, and the recent completion of our restructuring process, we are thrilled to be able to relaunch and commence our gradual return to the skies, said Benyamin Ismail, CEO of AirAsia X.

“This would not have been possible without the overwhelming support from our guests and creditors, and we thank them for their patience and understanding.

“Without any domestic routes, Air Asia X has been significantly affected by the pandemic. We now see light at the end of this long tunnel, and we are working hard to operate again in all our key markets, as one of the world’s leading low-cost medium-haul operators.

“Starting with flights to and from Sydney, we will progressively continue to honour outstanding bookings and Credit Accounts for our guests and creditors in other markets as soon as possible,” he said.

Fully vaccinated Australian citizens, permanent residents, international students, and eligible visa holders can travel to and from Australia without applying for a travel exemption.
