AirAsia X, a Malaysia-based long-haul budget airline, will be introducing daily flights to Hallyuwood beginning Nov 1…and fellow K-popped! Malaysians have gone wild with glee.
It was reported on Aug 10 that the airline had set a new sales record with over 80,000 seats snapped up, and the cash register rang in over RM20mil in introductory sales! Impressive, no?
The airline unleashed a "RM99 fare to Seoul" campaign and bookings for the new destination even surpassed previous campaigns for London, Melbourne and Taipei. 아싸! The airline, he added, expected over 100,000 passengers for its daily Seoul service in the first year of operation.
“Tourists from Malaysia and other neighbouring countries will also be able to enjoy South Korea during the winter season and opt for a skiing holiday as there are many ski resorts in the country,” he said.
