26 Nov 2014 by GrahamSmith

Air Asia X is confident it will soon reopen its route between Kuala Lumpur and London, almost three years after cancelling the service.

Tony Fernandes, the low-cost carrier's CEO, today revealed that he will next week discuss the issue with London mayor Boris Johnson.

Writing on Twitter, he said "the reopening of the route is definitely on the cards" and that it is "the most wanted route for Air Asia X and we will deliver it, I am quite sure".

The Malaysian airline abandoned its Kuala Lumpur to Gatwick route, as well as its services to Paris, Mumbai and New Delhi, in March 2012 (see news, January 2012). It blamed the high price of fuel for its decision.
