AirAsia X Bhd expects a better passenger connectivity of more than 50 per cent by year-end with its new operation at the klia2, said chief executive officer Azran Osman Rani.
He said as one of the airlines operating at the klia2, AirAsia X can offer its passengers more space and flights through greater connectivity.
"In the first quarter of the year, 47 per cent of AirAsia X passengers were connected. So, I expect we can go beyond the 50 per cent target," he told the media after the AirAsia Big Livery launch here today.
He said AirAsia X will continue to promote klia2 as its transit hub.
"This is in line with the long-haul strategy of the airline to grow by an average 40 per cent in terms of capacity, revenue and passenger load this year," he added.
Azran Osman said following the introduction of new flights to Nagoya, Japan and Xian, China recently, AirAsia X would announce a few more destinations soon.
For the financial year ended Dec 31, 2013, AirAsia X posted a pre-tax loss of RM212.98 million on the back of RM2.3 billion revenue.
