AirAsia X has launched flights to two new destinations, Colombo and Male, from Saturday. The airline said it operated the first flight into Colombo, Bandaranaike International Airport and Male, Ibrahim Nasir International Airport from Kuala Lumpur on 28 September 2013. AirAsia X will commence four weekly flights into Male, Maldives and Colombo, Sri Lanka from Kuala Lumpur. In conjunction with the launch of our new destinations, AirAsia X is offering hot deals from as low as MYR219 on Economy and MYR959 on Premium to Colombo and from as low as MYR399 on Economy and MYR959 on Premium to Male from Kuala Lumpur. Bookings are available online until 29 September 2013 for travel between 28 September 2013 and 29 March 2014. Terms and conditions apply. AirAsia X CEO Azran Osman-Rani said: “We are excited to announce our latest route to Colombo as well as to the capital city of Maldives that is Male. Our guests may now fly to Sri Lanka to take in the rich flavours and cultures that Colombo has to offer, and also to Maldives for a quick scenic and relaxing getaway. Both places have their very own unique charm and we are pleased to offer our guests more destination choices for their travel and holiday getaways.” “What’s unique about this new route is that, guests may opt to hop on our flights to Sri Lanka, or continue on to Maldives or fly direct to Maldives and vice versa from the Kuala Lumpur hub. With greater connectivity, more of our guests would be able to experience the crystalline blue waters of Male and experience the natural beauty of lush greens in Colombo and its surrounding regions. We are confident that these two new routes will stimulate new travel demand and boost tourism and business potential for us and the two countries,” concluded Azran.
