AirAsia X, the low-cost long-haul carrier affiliate of AirAsia, today celebrates the First Anniversary of its commercial service with a birthday bash at its base at the Low Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT) of the Kuala Lumpur International Airport here.

The airline started its commercial service with its flight from Kuala Lumpur to the Gold Coast, Australia on 2 November 2007, before adding the Kuala Lumpur-Hangzhou route in February 2008.

Exactly a year later, AirAsia X ushered in a new chapter of low-cost international travel by flying to its second Australian destination, Perth. The inaugural AirAsia X flight between Kuala Lumpur and Perth touched down on Western Australian soil at 2.40 pm yesterday, using the airline’s brand new wide-bodied Airbus A330. The A330 was freshly delivered from the Airbus facility in Toulouse, France on Friday.
