Read on the website of a French newspaper today: Air Asia X plan to start their flights between Paris ORY and KLIA with 2 weekly flights starting from beginning 2011.

For those who can read French, here is the article.

Looking forward to check their fares!

THAT is completely at odds with what's being mentioned on Airliners.Net. AirAsia X since last year, has already been given permission to fly 2 weekly between KL and Paris-Orly but the thing is, they're not happy with that and want at least 3 weekly services.

In addition, they do not have enough A340s to fly the route. The A330s are too short-legged and using any of their existing A340s will mean a cutback in London-Stansted service.

I just feel that the best new destination that Air Asia X could think about is Cairo .

That would definitely be a hot pick and may match 80,000 ticket sale for Seoul line. Cairo is a huge megalopolis, Egyptians in general are worldly-minded and far more adventurous compared to Arabian Gulfers thus we can draw budget travellers. Compared to its direct neighbors Egypt is decently cash-rich . Plus, not many competition as currently MS is the only operator on KUL-CAI.

MAS Now Has Online Booking From KL To And From Fukuoka, Nagoya
September 14, 2010 19:37 PM

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 14 (Bernama) -- Malaysia Airlines (MAS) now offers the easier online booking for passengers travelling from here to or from Fukuoka and Nagoya in Japan, the airline said in a statement on Tuesday.

MAS said it already served these routes through a codeshare agreement with ANA, but hitherto the tickets could only be purchased at MAS ticketing offices or travel agents and not online.

"Travelling to other parts of Japan is now very easy as customers can book our codeshare tickets online and, at the same time, the timing for the connecting flights is convenient, ensuring that customers don't have to wait for too long," said MAS Senior General Manager, Commercial Strategy, Dr Amin Khan.

The MAS daily flight to Fukuoka departs Kuala Lumpur at 11.30pm and arrives in Tokyo at 7.40am the next day, and the connecting flight departs Tokyo at 11.30am and arrives in Fukuoka at 1.30pm.

The flight to Nagoya departs Kuala Lumpur daily at 11.30pm and arrives in Tokyo at 7.40am, and the connecting flight leaves Tokyo at 10am to arrive in Nagoya at 11.20am.

Dr Amin said MAS was in the midst of expanding its operations and would introduce more flights to Japan.

He said that with the launch of Kota Kinabalu as a hub, MAS would offer three weekly non-stop flights from Kota Kinabalu to Haneda, the city airport in Japan, beginning Nov 15 next year.

MAS, which currently connects to Tokyo 11 times weekly and Osaka six times weekly, would also introduce twice-weekly services between Kota Kinabalu and Osaka from Jan 15 next year, he added.

AirAsia X opens tickets to Tokyo from next week
By B.K. SIDHU Wednesday September 15, 2010
http://biz.thestar.com.my/news/story...5&sec=business



Azran Osman-Rani says flying to Tokyo would be ‘super exciting.’

Airline will be first foreign low-cost carrier serving Haneda airport from Dec 9

PETALING JAYA: AirAsia X will begin flights to Haneda airport in Tokyo on Dec 9 and open ticket sales for the sector next week.

The airline plans to mount three weekly flights and it will be the first foreign low-cost carrier serving the airport that is expected to open for international flights in late October.

Asashi newspaper in Japan reported that AirAsia X was expected to price fares far lower than those charged for existing services between the capitals of Japan and Malaysia offered by Japan Airlines and Malaysia Airlines (MAS).

AirAsia X chief executive officer Azran Osman-Rani declined to reveal any pricing when contacted yesterday by StarBiz. But the market is abuzz with talk that the introductory price could range from RM99 to RM199.

Azran said that flying to Tokyo would be “super exciting as finally people will have choices and low fares to go to great places.’’

Three flights per week may be too few for AirAsia X but for now the airline does not have much of a choice.

It is learnt that the Japanese authorities had accorded seven rights and the Malaysian authorities awarded three each to AirAsia X and MAS, and one to Transmile.

“Japan is a high fixed cost city and with so few flights it would be difficult to make the sector sustainable so we will have to convince the authorities to grant us daily flights,” Azran said.

MAS will introduce three flights a week between Kota Kinabalu and Haneda from Nov 15.

Haneda airport is the main domestic hub for Tokyo but due to congestion in Narita, it will start receiving international flights next month. Haneda is just a 20-minute monorail or cab ride from downtown Tokyo whereas Narita is at least an hour’s train ride, and the trip can take over two hours by car on clogged roads.

To beat potential competition from six foreign low-cost carriers from China and South-East Asia, both Japanese carriers – Japan Airlines and All Nippon Airways (ANA) – want to set up low-cost airlines.

ANA has inked a deal with Hong Kong’s First Eastern Investment Group to set up a new airline that will start operations in the second half of 2011. ANA will own 39% in the venture and Far Eastern 33%. The balance equity will be sold to other investors.

What AirAsia X relies on, really, is the middle class, and it needs to charge significantly lower than what the competition is offering in order to be 'competitive'. If AirAsia X works out the sums, against the competition, particularly one-stop options such as Emirates, Qatar or Etihad, Turkish Airlines or even Singapore Airlines and of course, EgyptAir, and can set fares below them and STILL earn decent revenues, then Cairo can work.

I don't understand why D7 is allowed to fly KL-Tokyo Haneda while MH is stuck flying BKI-Tokyo Haneda. MH already flies to Tokyo Narita but Haneda has the attraction of being closer and more convenient to downtown Tokyo. Oh well, AirAsia X boleh!

AirAsia introducing in-flight calls and data access
Saturday September 25, 2010

KUALA LUMPUR: AirAsia Bhd is adding in-flight calls and data access to its range of services with an initial investment of US$1.8mil to equip the systems in six aircraft this year.

AirAsia non-executive chairman Datuk Abdul Aziz Abu Bakar said the airline had equipped four of its 96 fleet of A320 with GSM onboard system and was looking to install it on two other aircraft before the year-end.

“We are at a trial stage now and we plan to expand the service to more aircraft, going forward,” he said after the launch of the Maxis’ in-flight roaming service yesterday.

Abdul Aziz said the service was expected to boost the carrier’s ancillary income, which contributed about 15% of its total sales now.

AirAsia X chief executive officer Azran Osman-Rani said in a statement that the airline was looking at introducing the service for its long-haul flights.

The in-flight roaming service is with partnership with Maxis Bhd and in-flight connectivity provider, OnAir.

It will enable Maxis customers flying with AirAsia from Kuala Lumpur Low-Cost Carrier Terminal to stay connected while en route to their overseas destinations.

Meanwhile, Bloomberg reported AirAsia Bhd chief executive officer Datuk Seri Tony Fernandes as saying in Singapore that the company planned to hold an initial share sale for its Thai affiliate by the middle of next year.

AirAsia to increase KL-Guangzhou flights
Published: 2010/10/06
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...cle/index_html

AirAsia Bhd will increase its direct flights from Kuala Lumpur to Guangzhou from twice weekly to three times daily effective Nov 15, 2010.

In a statement here today, AirAsia said in conjunction with the additional flights, it would offer a special promotional fare, starting from RM88 one way.

"The promotion booking period is from Oct 6-10 for travel from Nov 15, 2010 to Aug 11, 2011," it said.

MALAYSIA AIRLINES (MAS) GETS PCI DSS CERTIFICATION
Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 7 (NNN-Bernama) -- Malaysia Airlines has been awarded the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard Certification (PCI DSS) for its Internet booking facility by Vectra Corporation Ltd.

PCI DSS is mandated by major payment card brands for any organisation that accepts or processes credit card transactions.

"With this, customers can rest assured that their credit card and personal data are protected right from the booking process until the issuance of electronic ticket," MAS Chief Information Officer Faridah Abdul Rahman said in a statement Thursday.

Faridah said the PCI DSS is one of the many certification programmes the airline will be embarking on to ensure data protection when clients purchase tickets via www.malaysiaairlines.com.

"Moving forward, other compliance programmes will address other aspects of information security to ensure the preservation of confidentiality and integrity of sensitive information of our customers," she added.

AirAsia X mulls new Jeddah, Sydney routes
Published: 2010/10/11
http://www.btimes.com.my/Current_New...cle/index_html

Long-haul budget carrier AirAsia X is looking at a possibility of adding new routes to Jeddah and Sydney following demand from consumers, chief executive officer Azran Osman-Rani said today.

These routes are popular and it is costing the country a lot of money right now because consumers now do not have enough choices for places like Istanbul and Osaka, he said.

"There is a lot of places where we're losing out in terms of the opportunity cost and people have to pay more than RM3,000 to go to Jeddah or Sydney," he told reporters after the StarBiz-ICR Malaysia CEO Forum 2010 here.

"Malaysia currently has less than half and often one-third the number of direct flight to these cities compared to Singapore and Bangkok," he said.


Singapore and Bangkok provide up to four different airlines serving these strategic routes compared to only one airline in Malaysia, according to Azran.

"We are far behind Singapore and Thailand. These routes are critical not just for tourism, it also for major economic centres, trade and investment flows, and also educational links," he said.

"In order to be a strong educational player, Malaysia needs to have viable economic direct air links," Azran said, adding that AirAsia X was ready to fly to these cities and waiting for government approval.

The airline has also placed orders for Airbus A350 aircraft to facilitate its services to North America. - Bernama
