Not bookable yet by the looks of things:
AN AIRFARE war is set to break out on flights to Asia following the announcement budget carrier AirAsia X will begin flying from Sydney to Malaysia. The airline is offering introductory flights to Kuala Lumpur from April from $99 one way, on to Bali from $159 and Phuket in Thailand from $139.
It follows Singapore Airline's budget offshoot Scoot's announcement last month that it would begin flying from Sydney to Singapore to July.
The new airlines will make it quicker and cheaper to get to Asia than ever before, with AirAsia X offering links to more than 80 destinations.
AirAsia X already flies to KL from the Gold Coast, Melbourne and Perth and the introduction of flights from Sydney had been highly anticipated.
