Jaipur : AirAsia X’s next destination!

by on November 6, 2017
 

Jaipur, the “Pink City” of India, is AirAsia X’s latest destination and second in India after New Delhi. The four times weekly flights will take off from 5th Feb 2018. Jaipur is currently on the route network of short-haul affiliate AirAsia Thailand.

AirAsia X is the first low-cost long-haul carrier to fly direct from Kuala Lumpur to  further improving its connectivity between its regional network in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and India. This follows a successful launch of the Bangkok-Jaipur route in September this year operated by its short-haul affiliate AirAsia Thailand.

This route will appeal to fly-thru travellers from outside Malaysia, especially those from Asean, Australia and New Zealand. The evening take-off from Kuala Lumpur makes flu-thru a convenient option.

Why Jaipur?

Jaipur was painted pink by Maharaja Sawai Ram Singh to welcome Queen Victoria’s son, the Prince of Wales, in 1876. The city was founded around 150 years earlier by Maharaja Jai Singh II, after whom it is named. Jaipur is the first planned city in India.
