AirAsia X Bhd has recently welcomed two brand new Airbus A330-300 aircraft into its fleet in Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (klia2), bringing its total fleet to 31 aircraft.
Both aircraft with the registration numbers 9M-XBA and 9M-XBB were delivered from the Airbus facility in Toulouse, France to Kuala Lumpur on May 14 and 28 respectively. The new aircraft will begin operating commercial flights for the airline almost immediately.
“These aircraft are the final two we will receive until our next delivery of the Airbus A330-900neo in 2018. We are very happy to have these two aircraft as part of the AirAsia X family as it gives us the right capacity to introduce more frequencies and connectivity into our route network,” CEO Benyamin Ismail said in a statement.
The AirAsia X group operates a 100% Airbus A330-300 fleet with an average fleet age of less than five years.
