AirAsia to Begin Direct Flights from Avalon Airport

Whether for business or for pleasure, flying to Asia has just become a whole lot easier!

In an exciting launch in a hangar at Avalon Airport in February it was announced that AirAsia would move their Melbourne operations to Avalon Airport, with flights beginning from the end of this year.

The daily direct flights to Kuala Lumpur from Avalon will provide access to an enormous number of thrilling connections. In fact AirAsia flies to over 130 stunning destinations so there will be no limit to the creativity of travel plans.

AirAsia’s motto – Now Everyone Can Fly – is indicative of the type of fares they offer. Their low cost comfortable flights means that travellers can spend less on travel and more once they’ve reached their destination.

The partnership with Avalon Airport means that not only will international travel be more affordable for Melbournians – in particular residents of Werribee and surrounds - but the entire overseas experience will be easy from the moment passengers step foot in the airport.

“Low-cost flights combined with an easy airport experience makes for the perfect partnership,” said Avalon Airport CEO Justin Giddings. “We’re extremely pleased to welcome AirAsia to Avalon Airport.”

Avalon Airport is well known for its ease of experience. With parking right out the front of the terminal or SkyBus direct from Geelong, getting to the airport is simple.

Avalon is easily accessible, being all one level, offers a comfortable Departure Lounge with free wifi, a multitude of mobile device charging points, a café, bar, newsagent and everything you need right by the gate.

Two flights a day will leave for KL from Avalon Airport, mid morning and mid evening.

AirAsia X Airbus A330s will fly the long haul between Avalon Airport and Kuala Lumpur. From KL passengers can catch AirAsia connections to an enormous number of destinations right around Asia.

AirAsia X Airbus A330s are fitted out with Economy, Quiet Zone and Premium Flatbed options allowing passengers to opt for saving an absolute bundle or to experience a little more inflight comfort.

The launch on 4 February was attended by special guests including the Minister for Foreign Affairs, the Hon. Julie Bishop, AirAsia Group CEO and AirAsia X Co-Group CEO Tony Fernandes, Founder of Linfox, Lindsay Fox AC, Executive Chairman Linfox Airports, David Fox, AirAsia X Malaysia CEO Benyamin Ismail, Minister for Industry and Employment, the Hon. Ben Carroll, Avalon Airport CEO Justin Giddings, and local TV personality Catriona Rowntree as master of ceremonies.
