The move will afford AirAsia X passengers better onward connectivity both by air and surface. The Gatwick Express will provide passengers quick connectivity to London’s Victoria station and the London Underground.

AirAsia X launched its flight into Stansted in March 2009 and offers a good low fare connection across the “Kangaroo Route” between the UK and Australia and New Zealand. The carrier also leverages the strong regional network of its affiliate AirAsia for passengers between Europe and south-east Asia.
