PETALING JAYA: AirAsia X will fly to Fukuoka in Japan, starting February next year.
AirAsia X Group commercial head Barry Klipp said flights will run four times a week.
He said that the launch of the new route will be a boost for tourism of both cities and also strengthen bilateral ties between Malaysia and Japan.
"It will give local tourism and trade a much needed boost through AirAsia X's great value fares, which stimulate the demands of both business and leisure travels," he said during the launch of the Kuala Lumpur-Fukuoka route at The Oak here on Thursday (Nov 29).
He said that fares for the route will start at RM199 on standard seats, and RM799 on the airline's award-winning Premium Flatbeds.
The launch fares for flights to Fukuoka will be available from the airline's website at airasia.com starting Friday (Nov 30) until Dec 9, 2018 for travels between Feb 28 and Oct 28, 2019, he added.
