When waving off the inaugural flight, AirAsia X Malaysia CEO, Benyamin Ismail noted that the airline’s service resumption to Beijing reflects their commitment to boosting their network in China, historically always been one of our biggest and most popular markets.
…. We are also looking at ramping up the frequency to four weekly flights starting 1st June 2023 to meet growing forecast demand, further boosting exchanges between the world’s second largest economy and Asean, and the region’s tourism recovery.
