AirAsia X leaps onto Iran bandwagon

Airline to link Tehran with Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok
AirAsia X will launch new routes from Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok to Tehran starting next month.
Flights to the Iranian capital from klia2 and Don Mueang airports will be operated thrice-weekly, starting June 21 and 22, respectively. AirAsia X is a Malaysia-based long-haul, low-cost airline, a sister company of AirAsia.
“The recent lifting of sanctions opens up exciting new prospects for Iran as a tourist destination,” said Benyamin Ismail, CEO of AirAsia X.
“We believe that the revival of direct flights to Tehran from Kuala Lumpur is timely and we foresee that our direct flights from both ASEAN cities of Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok can improve bilateral relations while encouraging trade and tourism activities between the cities.”
