In the past few weeks AirAsia X announced two new routes for 2011–Christchurch and Paris–but the fast-growing carrier is not showing any signs of slowing down.
Tony Fernandes, one of AirAsia X’s investors, says that he hopes the carrier can fly to New York next year via a stop-over in Europe with fifth-freedom rights. In 2012 he hopes to see AirAsia X expand into Budapest, Moscow, and Prague.
That’s all swell, but AirAsia X will be constrained with the range of its A330-300s. (The carrier has two A340s but hasn’t shown an interest in acquiring more. Likewise it’s A350s on order will not arrive for a number of years.)
For that there are two solutions: Fernandes is pushing Airbus to extend the A330-300′s range and is also discussing purchasing longer-range A330-200 aircraft.
