Following its large-scale restructuring and the resumption of flights to Sydney in February, AirAsia X is now expanding its network from Kuala Lumpur with twice-weekly services to Delhi from April 13, and a weekly flight to Seoul-Incheon starting on April 20. Both routes will be operated with A330-300s featuring premium flatbed seats in business class.

On Wednesdays and Sundays, Delhi–bound Flight D7 160 will leave Kuala Lumpur at 9:35 a.m. and arrive at Indira Gandhi International Airport at 12:30 p.m. local time. The return service, Flight D7 161, will take off from Delhi at 1:25 p.m. and land back at KLIA at 9:25 p.m. the same day.

Flight D7 504, the outbound red-eye service to Seoul, is scheduled to depart Kuala Lumpur at 10:25 p.m. every Wednesday and arrive in Incheon at 5:55 a.m. the next morning. Flight D7 505 will then take off from Incheon International Airport at 7:15 a.m. on Thursdays to return to Kuala Lumpur at 1:05 p.m. in the afternoon. Tickets for both routes are on sale now for travel through June, with more services to be added in the near future.

AirAsia X says it is prioritizing those with outstanding bookings or unused credit due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Affected passengers can update their original reservation for future travel or utilize their credit account when booking flights to Seoul and Delhi.

The airline’s chief Benyamin Ismail said in a statement, “After two long years, we are thrilled to return to the skies once again with the best value airfares for medium haul travel… We are also preparing travel vouchers for our guests who have unutilized credit, to use for future bookings, which will be announced in the near future.” He added that news of flight resumptions to other popular destinations would also come soon.
