AirAsia X launches direct flight to the “Pink City” in India from Kuala Lumpur!

AirAsia X will soon be achieving yet another milestone with the announcement of direct services from Kuala Lumpur to Jaipur, India with four times-weekly flights effective 5 February 2018.


Pink in color and pink in vibrancy, the city of Jaipur is one of most beautiful and magnificent cities of India. Apart from being the capital of Rajasthan, Jaipur is also the largest city of the state and is the first planned city of India.


With fantastic attractions all around the city, it invites tourists from all over the world. Jaipur’s rich cultural heritage is displayed in the traditions, customs, lifestyle, art, jewellery, textiles and architecture of the place. In fact the best understanding of Jaipur’s culture can be attained through its art, music and architecture. It is one city that, even after modernisation, still holds to its history, culture and values.


The majestic forts and havelis, the beautiful temples, the serene landscapes, and the rich cultural heritage, have made Jaipur an ideal destination for tourists. The foundation of the city dates back to the eighteenth century, with credit to the great warrior Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II, who ascended the Amber Throne in 1699.


The glorious past of Jaipur comes alive in the palaces and forts in the city where once lived by the royal clans. Apart from Amber Palace, among the must-see magnificent iconic landmarks in Jaipur are City Palace, Hawa Mahal, Jal Mahal, Nahargarh Fort, Birla Temple, Jantar Mantar and Panna Meena ka Kund. The pink colour of the city captivates every heart and the atmosphere of Jaipur bring joy and delight as the tourists set their foot in the city… I know I cannot wait to visit.. I had my eyes on this place but the travel time in the past made me think many times…, with a direct flight now, there is no reason not to visit..


AirAsia X launches the new unique route on the 6th November 2017, offering promotional all-in fares from as low as RM229* for economy seat and RM699* one way for Premium flatbed seats open for bookings on for the travel period between 5 Feb 2018 and 21 Nov 2018.


 AirAsia X will be the first low-cost long-haul carrier to fly direct from Kuala Lumpur to Jaipur, the capital city of Rajasthan, further improving its connectivity between its regional network in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and India. This follows a successful launch of Bangkok-Jaipur route in September this year operated by its short-haul affiliate AirAsia Thailand.


This new route offers travel convenience and affordable options for travelers. Before this, guests wanting to travel to Jaipur with us would have had to first fly from Kuala Lumpur to Delhi for five hours and 30 minutes or to Mumbai for five hours before taking a domestic flight, spending quite a bit for another hour from Delhi or two and a half hours from Mumbai to reach Jaipur.


For those who opt for ground travel, it will take at least five hours to get to Jaipur from Delhi and about half the journey from Mumbai. With this new route, passengers can cut short travel time and fly direct from Kuala Lumpur to Jaipur in only five hours and 30 minutes.

Besides from Kuala Lumpur to Jaipur, the airline also flies direct to New Delhi. The service which started in February 2016, has registered a healthy average load factor of 88 percent.
