Long-haul low-cost carrier AirAsia X plans to increase frequencies on its Taipei and Perth services, starting from 22 June.

The carrier will increase its Kuala Lumpur-Taipei Taoyuan service from daily flights to 11 times a week and its Kuala Lumpur-Perth service from daily flights to nine times a week.

"The additional flights will open up new horizons for commercial activities and boost tourism in the ASEAN [Association of South East Asian Nations] region, Taiwan and Australia. We are confident that the network realignment plan would strategically expand our growth in Australia and Taiwan," said the airline's CEO Azran Osman-Rani.

AirAsia X did not specify the type of aircraft it plans to use but schedules in Innovata show the airline uses Airbus A330-300s on the two routes.
