New low-cost carrier eyes Aussie destinations
July 24, 2007 - 4:32PM

New long-distance budget airline Air Asia X says it will announce its first Australian destination within days, and its promotional fares to London will be as low as $11.30.

The carrier - an offshoot of Asia's biggest low cost airline Air Asia - hopes to fly to Australia for its inaugural flight from its Kuala Lumpur base in September.

It expects to offer Australians standard fares 30 to 50 per cent cheaper than its competitors, to the Malaysian capital, and then a host of far flung places, including the UK, Middle East, India and China.

Might be a better way of getting to Asia than Tiger or Jet*, so as to then pick up cheap onward fares to the rest of the world.

I'll be keeping my eye on it...
