ROUTES | AirAsia X Launches First Direct Service Flight From Hong Kong to Kuala Lumpur

AirAsia X (AAX) has started its first flight from Hong Kong to Kuala Lumpur, which marks the medium-haul airline's initial direct route to and from the cosmopolitan city. The first flight took off from Hong Kong International Airport at 3:30 PM and landed at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (Terminal 2) at 7:25 PM local time.


The passengers on this inaugural flight were given special AirAsia merchandise to add excitement to their journey. AAX's 22nd route overall and 8th route in Greater China, Hong Kong, further develops the airline's extensive network and commitment to expanding its services in the region. This milestone reflects AAX's strategic focus on connecting essential destinations and fostering increased accessibility for travelers from Greater China to ASEAN and beyond.

AAX operates the A330 aircraft with a maximum seating capacity of 377 seats. This new route launch marks the first time the larger widebody aircraft will be operating in the Hong Kong market, providing more capacity for passengers in the Greater Bay Area to explore Southeast Asia or even fly further to Maldives, Bali, Perth, Gold Coast, and many more popular destinations. Setting itself apart from other existing AirAsia flights on the same route, AAX offers three cabin options, including the immensely popular Premium Flatbed, Quiet Zone, and Standard Cabin, providing more value and choice for guests than ever before. Benyamin Ismail, AirAsia X Malaysia CEO, said, "We are excited to commence our inaugural services to/from Hong Kong, which complement the existing flights operated by AirAsia Malaysia (flight code AK).
