GSA welcomes Air Asia flight increase


Air Asia X - the low-cost longhaul arm of Malaysian carrier Air Asia – has added a new destination and frequencies to its winter 2009 schedule, opening up new opportunities for its Irish cargo GSSA IAM. 
On 19th October, Air Asia X introduced four flights per week from its Kuala Lumpur hub to Chengdu. The services operate on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday using A330 aircraft. 
At the same time, Air Asia X has boosted flights to Gold Coast (Australia) from four to six flights per week, with new services operating on Wednesday and Friday. 
From December, the carrier will add four more flights per week to its Kuala Lumpur-Melbourne service, bringing flights to a weekly total of 11. Again, all flights are performed using A330 aircraft.
IAM was appointed to represent Air Asia X in March, when the airline commenced its first longhaul services from London (Stansted) to Kuala Lumpur, now operated daily. Since then, IAM has seen steady growth in traffic for the airline’s network, which currently includes 20 widebody services per week from Kuala Lumpur to Australia.
Says IAM MD Ian McCool: “Ireland’s continuing focus on airfreightable commodities such as pharmaceuticals means that every new carrier and destination is welcomed. The market was therefore very receptive to Air Asia X. 
“Although Air Asia X  - like most airlines - is offline to Ireland, we connect to their Stansted gateway using nightly express truck services, and this has made their network viable to our local market. The addition of these new frequencies and a further key destination represents a significant enhancement to the service we are offering”. 
AirAsia, founded in 1993, is the largest low cost carrier in Asia, operating over 400 flights daily from its hubs in Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia. Launched in January 2007, AirAsia X focuses on low-cost, long-haul, high-frequency services. Air Asia and Air Asia X collectively operate 78 Airbus A320, A330 and A340, with another 142 Airbus aircraft on order.  
IAM is the lead company in a successful aviation services group, represents 13 major airlines, and is the exclusive Irish member of EGSAC, the world’s largest GSA network with 130+ stations in 30+ countries.
