Airasia X flew 1.02 million passengers in 2Q14

 KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 6 (Bernama) -- AirAsia X Bhd flew 1.02 million passengers in the second quarter of 2014 (2Q14), up 46 per cent from the 700,000 in the same period last year.
In a statement Tuesday, the long-haul, low-cost airline said the positive figures helped AirAsia X to maintain its position as the market leader in passengers carried to each of its core markets in Australia and North Asia.
It also said that AirAsia X's planned capacity expansion to achieve and maintain global leadership in the long-haul low-cost carrier market continued with a 47 per cent year-on-year growth in available seat kilometres (ASK) to 6.265 billion.
"This increase arose primarily from capacity introduced in the second half of 2013 to the company's core markets in Australia and North Asia," it said, adding the new capacity is now reaching its third quarter of maturity.
AirAsia X said during the same period under review, the company's fleet size expanded from 14 to 23 aircraft.
For 2Q14, it took delivery of an A330-300 on operating lease, bringing its total number of A330-300s to 20, including two A330-300s leased to Thai AirAsia X and one A330-300 leased to Indonesia AirAsia X.
