Air Asia introduces Additional Flights On the Stansted Airport Route

Thursday 25 Mar 2010 8:08pm

Air Asia has stated that it will begin running additional flights from between Kuala Lumpur and Stansted Airport to keep up with rising needs. Today, this service operates seven times every week, but starting in July, August, September, and December 2010 and January 2011, an additional two more flights will occur every week. On top of this, Air Asia's London to Kuala Lumpur flight service will now feature flat bed seats available. 'We have seen surging demand on the London to Kuala Lumpur route despite 2009 being one the toughest years for the aviation industry,' Azran Osman-Rani, chief executive of AirAsia, clarified. Air Asia claims that Kuala Lumpur has evolved into a 'regional hub' within Asia, and that more and more customers are utilizing this airport to make connections for additional destinations around the Asian continent. More than 220,000 individual passengers took advantage of these flights from Stansted Airport in the first year they operated alone. As a reminder, passengers flying via British Airways on flights departing from Gatwick Airport or Heathrow Airport on particular dates throughout March have been warned that there will be delays, since the British Airways cabin crew announced that they would be striking then.
