Ever wanted to live out your wildest safari dreams? Now you can, because AirAsia X has announced a brand new route to Nairobi, Kenya's capital in Africa!

Set to take its first flight on 15 November 2024, this marks a milestone for AirAsia X as the sole low-cost carrier in Malaysia to offer direct air connectivity to the city.

"This new route not only opens up Asia to Africa but also has the potential to strengthen ties in tourism, business, and trade between the two continents. It marks the beginning of a new journey into Africa, and while our roots are in Asia and Asean, our dream has always been to make Kuala Lumpur a global low cost carrier hub," said CEO of Capital A, Tony Fernandez.

"Situated in the heart of Kenya, Nairobi boasts acres of lush greenery, wide open grass plains that go as far as the eye can see, and an abundance of wildlife that often attracts throngs of tourists who hope to catch a glimpse of the near-extinct Northern White Rhino or the Great Migration in Masai Mara."

"If the breathtaking skylines or the thrilling safari experiences aren't captivating enough, the city is a bustling metropolis of vibrant nightlife, deeply rooted in culture and flavourful delights stemming from the various cultures and traditions it is home to," reads the press statement.

AirAsia X will operate four weekly flights to Nairobi.

From now until 14 July, the airline is offering a promotion with all-in one-way fares starting from RM699.

Additionally, the airline is providing free seats* on flights between Kuala Lumpur and Nairobi.

The travel period for the promotions are between 15 November 2024 and 8 October 2025.
