AirAsia X returns to Xi’An as the sole airline connecting Kuala Lumpur directly to the iconic Chinese city

AirAsia X resumes flights from Kuala Lumpur to Xi’An, enhancing Malaysia-China connectivity. Starting April 4, 2024, the service offers direct access to historical and cultural landmarks in Xi’an, aligning with AAX’s growth strategy in China.

AirAsia X (AAX) announced its service resumption from Kuala Lumpur to Xi’An, rekindling the link between Malaysia and this iconic Chinese city, known as one of the four Great Ancient Capitals of China and the starting point of the Silk Road.

Starting on 4 April 2024, travellers will have the opportunity to explore the capital of Shaanxi Province and the oldest surviving capital of China, home to thousands of years of Chinese heritage and history. From the Terracotta warriors of China’s first emperor, Qin Shi Huang, to the Great Wild Goose Pagoda and the Muslim Quarter, Xi’an offers a diverse range of experiences for everyone.

This resumption of three weekly flights aligns with AAX’s commitment to strengthen its presence in China with five destinations while complementing the AirAsia Group’s 12th destination in Mainland China. In addition, the resumed service marks AAX as the sole airline offering direct flights between Kuala Lumpur and Xi’An.

AirAsia X Malaysia CEO, Benyamin Ismail said: “We are proud to be the only airline connecting Kuala Lumpur directly to Xi’An with this route resumption. Resuming this route to Xi’An as part of our ever-growing network proves our steadfast commitment to our growth strategies in Greater China, especially in this significant year that marks the 50th anniversary of Malaysia-China diplomatic relations. As we expand our footprint in China, we wholeheartedly support Malaysia and China’s visa-free initiatives which facilitate easier travel between the two countries. We look forward to contributing to the continued success of the longstanding diplomatic relations between our two nations through tourism.”
