AirAsia X to resume Delhi flights

AirAsia X will relaunch flights to Delhi in February 2016, four years after it suspended the service. The Malaysian low-cost carrier has confirmed that it will start operating four weekly direct flights between Kuala Lumpur and India’s capital on February 3. Flights will depart KLIA every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday at 1900, arriving in Delhi at 2200. The return services will then leave the Indian capital at 2315, arriving back in KL at 0730 the next morning. The flight time is approximately five and a half hours. Like all other AirAsia X flights, the Delhi service will be operated using a 377-seat Airbus A330-300 aircraft, offering flat-bed seats in business class. AirAsia X pulled out of India in 2012, suspending its Delhi and Mumbai routes due to high operating costs. It will now compete with Malaysia Airlines and Malindo Air on the KL-Delhi route.
