If you’re worried about flying AAX, given that they have been unable to fly passengers since the Malaysian borders closed almost two years ago, don’t worry. They’ve been flying cargo, to keep both crew and aircraft in good condition.
…. We have been very active on all cargo flights throughout the pandemic and this has been a lifeline for us. For the first time, we are adding on passengers to supplement cargo revenue in our push to be a major combination carrier in this part of the world.
AirAsia X acknowledges that take up will be gradual, but they see a gradual improvement in coming months as more people return to the skies and assure travellers that they are ready for the pent up demand. With the lack of domestic routes AAX has been significantly affected by the pandemic. The airline recognises this would not have been possible without the overwhelming support from AAX passengers and creditors and they thank them for their patience and understanding.
…. As we anticipate the gradual reopening of international borders around the world in 2022, we are delighted to return to Australia first, as one of our most popular markets. This new weekly service for guests marks a significant milestone for the resumption of our commercial services and will contribute to our growth post-restructuring. CEO of AirAsia X Benyamin Ismail
He added that:
…. Starting with flights to and from Sydney, we will progressively continue to honour outstanding bookings and Credit Accounts for our guests and creditors in other markets as soon as possible. We look forward to announcing additional new services soon.
