The AirAsia X Group (AAX) relaunch plan is gaining traction as the airline remains focused on medium haul destinations with proven demand in the short run. The AAX Group stated today that it will increase Malaysia AirAsia X (D7) flights to 44 weekly over 10 routes, and that it will expand Thai AirAsia X (XJ) operations to 22 weekly services across five routes in the next two months.
AAX recently launched direct flights from Kuala Lumpur to South Korea (Seoul-Incheon) and India (New Delhi), as well as the resumption of services to Australia (Sydney, Melbourne, Perth), New Zealand (Auckland), and Japan (Tokyo-Haneda and Sapporo-Chitose), with new routes to Saudi Arabia (Jeddah) and Taipei beginning in November. Thai AirAsia X has begun service from Bangkok to Japan (Osaka and Tokyo-Narita), South Korea (Seoul-Incheon), and Australia (Melbourne and Sydney), with new direct flights to Japan (Sapporo-Chitose) beginning in early December.
AAX remains committed to recalling all furlough pilots and cabin personnel as it returns to the air. AAX stated today that all furloughed pilots and retrenched cabin employees will be able to return to the skies by December of this year. AAX has already reactivated 175 pilots and 285 cabin crew since the epidemic, including rehiring 131 cabin crew who were laid off during the pandemic.
