Preparations for a return to the skies
AirAsia X has recently been working on a restructuring plan which was approved by shareholders earlier this week. This paves the way for the airline to restart flights as soon as Malaysia’s borders reopen and its citizens are allowed to resume international travel. The airline has been preparing by taking some of its currently hibernated aircraft to the skies again.
Since early February, they have made non-passenger flights to various popular destinations across Australia, Asia and the sub continent. This will also get their pilots back up to speed with their hours as required, in aircraft that have been well tested in flight. These measures will give confidence to travellers, who will be pleased to know that neither aircraft, engineers or crew have been ‘sitting idle’ the past 15 months.
