Malaysian long-haul buget carrier AirAsia X will launch its 15th international destination — from Kuala Lumpur to Christchurch, New Zealand — with four weekly nonstops, starting April 1, 2011, and using new Airbus A330 aircraft. "AirAsia X flights will open up routes and connectivity to New Zealand not just from Malaysia, but from India, Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia, China and London via AirAsia X's Kuala Lumpur hub," said Tourism New Zealand CEO Kevin Bowler. "We have strong growth in demand from Southeast Asia, and this new service will go a long way to fulfilling this increased interest," Bowler added.
