AirAsia X to Halt New Zealand Flights

Singapore-based AirAsia X has announced their decision to suspend all flights to and from Christchurch, New Zealand in an effort to focus on their core markets.  The airline says that the route and its viability have been affected by the high cost of jet fuel.  Azran Osman-Rani, chief executive of AirAsia X, said that jet fuel costs have risen 30% since they first established their route to Christchurch.

Currently, the airline flies from Kuala Lampur to Christchurch four times per week and these flights will be suspended.  The final flight out of Kuala Lampur will be on May 30, 2012 and the final return flight will depart Christchurch on May 31.  To compensate their customers, AirAsia X is offering passengers who have flights booked after these dates three options: to get a full refund, to rebook on a flight prior to the May 30-31 dates, or to rebook on a flight to another destination served by AirAsia X.
