Asian airline to establish Darwin hub

Indonesia AirAsia president director Dharmadi announced in Darwin on Tuesday that daily flights would begin from December 23 between Darwin and Denpasar in Bali.

To celebrate the new route Mr Dharmadi said 10,000 $99(AUD) one-way flights would go on sale at midnight on Tuesday, to fly between December 23 and November, 2011.

He said that when the four-day sale concluded, the flights would typically be priced between $175 to $200, but that they could cost up to $400.
He said the low-cost airline had not dumped any of its routes, either in Australia or Asia, since it began operating a decade ago.
Sly way to say that we dumped one route, KUL-AUH, Kuala Lumpur to Abu Dhabi.
