We have strong growth in demand from South East Asia and this new service will go a long way to fulfilling this increased interest in visiting our stunning country.” Tony Fernnades, founder of AirAsia X, added “Rich in heritage, sophistication and a sense of adventure with an unforgettable scenic experience, Christchurch represents an important feeder market into our growing international network. The four times weekly flight will strengthen our business and tourism links with New Zealand, adding real convenience and providing affordable international travel for everyone.”
