AirAsia X To Drop Tianjin In Favour Of Beijing

Malaysian low cost carrier AirAsia X has revealed plans to launch services to Beijing next month, fulfilling a longtime goal to serve the Chinese capital. The airline has also decided to end flights between Kuala Lumpur and Tianjin, which it has touted as a gateway to Beijing.


Kuala Lumpur – Beijing Nonstop from 22 June 2012

Flight D7 7316 will initially operate 4 times a week, departing Kuala Lumpur at 1845 hrs on Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays to arrive in Beijing at 0050 hrs the next day. The return flight, D7 7317, takes off from Capital International Airport at 0205 hrs to land back at Kuala Lumpur International Airport at 0830 hrs.


The flight upgrades to a daily service from 6 August 2012, with the outbound leg departing later at 1900 hrs and arriving in Beijing at 0105 hrs, while the inbound sector’s schedules remain unchanged. AirAsia X will operate its 2-class Airbus A330-300 jets on the route, configured with 12 Premium Flatbed and 365 Economy Class seats.


Kuala Lumpur – Tianjin to End 20 June 2012

With Tianjin situated an hour from Beijing, AirAsia X will withdraw from the city on 20 June 2012. Affected customers will be provided the option to switch their bookings to the Beijing route, a change of travel dates, convert the fare paid to credits for other AirAsia transactions or a full refund.
