New air service to heighten demand for Malaysia trips

Asian destinations have always been popular among Australian holidaymakers and the number of budget airlines offering flights to the continent has grown sharply in recent years.

AirAsia X is the latest to introduce an affordable service between Sydney and Kuala Lumpur and the first plane connecting the two cities touched down yesterday (April 2nd).

With a favourable climate, long sandy beaches, plenty of culture and the cheap cost of living – it is little wonder that holidays in Malaysia are so appealing.

People searching the internet for the best travel money rates will find that one dollar will currently get them more than three Malaysian ringgit, which is a decent rate of exchange.

Speaking to Bernama, Tourism Malaysia's director in Sydney Shahrin Mokhtar said that the number of Aussies heading to the Asian country has grown sharply in the past five years.

He suggested that inexpensive new services offered by the likes of AirAsiaX will only further enhance the nation's popularity down under.
