AirAsia X is hoping it can generate enough traffic to Abu Dhabi that it can switch aircraft type to Airbus A330s.

The carrier's CEO Azran Osman-Rani says if traffic on the Abu Dhabi route increases it will switch to an A330 from an Airbus A340 and launch services from Abu Dhabi to destinations in Africa, the Middle East and Europe.

He says it may have some one-stop services from Kuala Lumpur to London Stansted via Abu Dhabi using A330s but will continue to also have non-stop services using the A340s.

But he says a higher priority is to launch A330 services through Abu Dhabi to destinations in Africa and other points in Europe.
