AirAsia X to Haneda

The Malaysian-based long haul, budget airline AirAsia X is to introduce a three times weekly service from Kuala Lumpur to Tokyo Haneda on 9 October.  This is the 12th destination for the airline after Australia, China, India, Korea, Taiwan and Europe.

Flight time is around 6½ hours.  The airline is unique in that the premium cabin is in the centre of the aircraft.  In this section the flat-bed seats are to standard Business Class specifications of 20" width, 60" pitch with a length of 77" in full recline position.  The seats feature universal power sockets, adjustable headrests and built-in personal utilities including a tray table, drink holder, reading light and privacy screen. 

The airline uses the low cost terminal at Kuala Lumpur where passengers can transfer on to sister airline Air Asia’s large South East Asian route network. www.airasia.com
