AirAsia X Bhd’s (AAX) has resumed its flight to Tokyo’s Haneda Airport following the full reopening of the country’s border for international tourism.
In a statement, AAX said the thrice-weekly flights will be the airline’s first flight to Japan post-pandemic, ahead of its second route launch to Sapporo (Shin-Chitose) in December.
In commemoration of the service’s resumption, AAX celebrated the flight with a send-off ceremony at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport.
AAX is also offering great value with tickets for flights from Kuala Lumpur to Haneda priced at RM699 all in one way for economy and RM2,599 for the premium flatbed.
Seats available for booking are for the travel period from now until March 30, 2024.
Chief executive officer Benyamin Ismail said Japan is a core destination and the company is thrilled to return to Tokyo as it has always been one of the most popular routes.
“The resumption of services to Tokyo signifies our commitment to accelerating our growth as a mid-range airline. This is only the first of several routes to Japan that will be in service, including to Sapporo (Shin-Chitose) in December and Osaka next year.
“Our Malaysian guests love Japan but not only that, we have significant fly-through connectivity via Kuala Lumpur to Japan including from Australia and more.
“As demand increases, we will also add more flights to Tokyo gradually to meet strong forecast demand,” AAX said.
