Reflective of a deepening economic crisis in Europe, Asia’s leading low-cost airline, Malaysia-based AirAsia has announced that they will cease flight services to Europe and India in February 2012.

Kuala Lumpur-Mumbai four-time weekly flights will be suspended on January 31, 2012.
Kuala Lumpur to New Delhi daily services will cease on March 22, 2012. Flight in March will be reduced to four flights per week.

The six weekly flights Kuala Lumpur to London end on March 31, 2012.
The four weekly flights Kuala Lumpur to Paris end on March 30, 2012.

The airline has followed up the announcement of flight cessations by emphasizing they will continue to focus its low-cost long-haul service on its existing services to Australasia, China, Taiwan, Japan, and Korea “where we have built up stable, profitable routes within an infrastructure that supports low cost services." The airline says services to these areas will be enhanced in the near future.

Meanwhile, AirAsia is blaming the end of service to Europe on high jet fuel prices, declining demand for air travel and exorbitant government taxes have made it impossible to offer their extremely low fares between their Kuala Lumpur base and Europe.

The Indian government’s restrictive, complicated and expensive visa restrictions between Malaysia and India together with escalating handling and airport charges were cited by AirAsia as “not conducive to the low cost model.”

Since the commencement of flight to London by AirAsia in March 2009, oil prices of US$40/barrel have since tripled. Fuel costs are estimated to represent 50% of operating costs on long-haul flights.

The cancellation of flights can not also be divorced from plan to increase the U.K. Air Passenger Duty from the current £92 per departing passenger to £184, effective April 1, 2012. This follows an increase in carbon taxes on the Emission Trading Scheme introduced by the European Union on January 1, 2012.

It's sad, as I loved to fly with them to Europe. Great quality for a very great price.
I can understand their reasons, but people with bookings after 31 March get in trouble because of this. Finding a ticket at the same rate won't be easy, not to say impossible.

Yeah, that is the risk you take if you want to fly as cheap as possible.

You will find cheaper, but what airline gives you the possibility to book 30kgs of luggage without going for business class or without charging you 50-80 Euro for every kg above 23-25kgs ??
Thats one of the main reasons I started flighing AirAsia, I always booked the 30kgs option as lots to take with and leave behind.

No airline does that because they know it costs a lot of money.. the result is that they now do not fly that route anymore.

If you really need to transport more than the allowance, why not send a 5 kilogram box for less than 40 euro from the Netherlands to Indonesia by post.nl mail service? No hassle and you don't even have to fly to Indonesia for it as well, so you save hundreds of euro's. Emoticon: Shiny

Ik heb een vraag wat betreft Air Asia, als ik van Denpasar naar Jakarta vlieg moet ik dan apart betalen voor mijn bagage? Ik heb namelijk een promo gezien als ik vlieg op 21 augustus, dan vlieg ik met Air Asia voor 27.31€, dit is zo goedkoop dat ik me afvraag waar zit het addertje?

Oeps verkeerde topic geloof ik, ik had dit beter kunnen vragen bij binnenlandse vluchten. Ik hoop toch dat mijn vraag beantwoord wordt.

Bij die prijs van 27,31 , ik neem aan dat die van ticketindonesia is , heb je m.i.al een bagagetoeslag voor 15 kg inbegrepen. Wil je meer meenemen, betaal je een paar euro meer. Je kunt , als je over een creditcard beschikt, ook vrij eenvoudig boeken via de site van Air asia zelf. Dan is de prijs iets van ruim 16 euro, en komt er wel nog een toeslag bij voor bagage, en de overige toeslagen nog natuurlijk, zodat je rond de 30 euro uitkomt. Je kunt dan zelf bepalen , hoeveel bagage je meeneemt, eventueel stoelen reserveren (is eigenlijk niet nodig) , en eventueel een maaltijd reserveren voor een paar euro extra.
Het betreft in dit geval z.g. promotie-tickets , die je niet meer kunt wijzigen of annuleren.
Daar is niets mis mee , als je vrij zeker bent van je reis , en geen wijzigingen verwacht. Ik maak zelf ook regelmatig gebruik van Air Asia promotietickets, en ze zijn vergeleken met andere maatschappijen , vaak een stuk voordeliger.
