More Aussies are likely to require overseas travel money for Asian destinations, as another budget carrier announced new services to the continent.

AirAsia X has revealed it will start flying between Sydney and Kuala Lumpur on a daily basis from April 1st, having recently suspended flights from Australia to London and Paris.

Aussies now have more choice than ever when selecting the cheapest flights to Asia and the extra service could also benefit tourism in New South Wales.

Chief executive at AirAsia X Azran Osman-Rani commented: "Australia is a key market for AirAsia X and the Sydney route has long been a priority due to strong demand from travellers across the globe, especially Asia."

Towards the end of 2011, Air Scoot – a subsidiary of Singapore Airlines – also revealed it would put on new flights between Sydney and Singapore in mid-2012.

Bosses told the Australian that the carrier could offer services between the two destinations that are 40 per cent cheaper than those issued by legacy airlines.
