Ever wanted to go to India? Ever thought it might all be too hard, or too expensive?
Not anymore. AirAsia X is celebrating the launch of four-times-weekly flights to Jaipur, India, via Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, commencing on February 5, 2018.
AirAsia X, regularly voted as world’s best low-cost airline, is running a special promotion with all-in-fares to Jaipur from $241 one-way. Fares are available online and on the AirAsia mobile app for booking now until Saturday.
Travel dates are February 5, 2018, until May 6, 2018.
AirAsia X is the first low-cost long-haul carrier to fly direct from Kuala Lumpur to Jaipur, the capital city of Rajasthan. This follows a successful launch of the Bangkok-Jaipur route in September this year operated by its short-haul affiliate AirAsia Thailand.
Jaipur is the 12th destination in India on the AirAsia Group network.
AirAsia X Chief Executive Officer Benyamin Ismail said: “This new route will offer travel convenience and affordable options for our guests.
"Before this, guests wanting to travel to Jaipur with us would have had to first fly from Kuala Lumpur to Delhi for five hours and 30 minutes, or to Mumbai for five hours before taking a domestic flight, spending quite a bit for another hour from Delhi or 2 1/2 hours from Mumbai to reach Jaipur.
"For those who opt for ground travel, it will take at least five hours to get to Jaipur from Delhi and about half the journey from Mumbai. We are expecting to carry between 132,000 and 143,000 passengers between February and December next year for this route."
The "pink" city of Jaipur is one of most beautiful cities in India. As the capital of Rajasthan, Jaipur is also the largest city in the state and is the first planned city of India.
AirAsia X, together with AirAsia Group, provides Australians with low-cost fares and access to over 130 destinations across 24 countries in Asia, the Middle East and New Zealand, departing from Melbourne, Sydney, Gold Coast, Darwin and Perth.
