AirAsia X lands at Gatwick

AirAsia X has finally arrived at Gatwick after switching its London base from Stansted to Gatwick.

The airline now operates a five-times-per-week Gatwick to Kuala Lumpur service using AirAsia X’s 327-seat Airbus A340-300, which includes 18 Premium Fly Flat bed seats.

AirAsia Head of Commercial, Darren Wright said: “Gatwick Airport was chosen as it demonstrated the passion to work with us in realising our objectives to grow passenger traffic between our hubs in London and Asia Pacific.

“With our new home base in Gatwick, guests will be able to further benefit from the airport’s regional access and market connectivity potential with faster and cheaper rail connectivity to the city as compared to Stansted. AirAsia X sees strong potential for the airport as we believe our entry will address the fact that direct services to Asia have been significantly underserved from Gatwick.”
