Leading low cost airline AirAsia X has announced special rescue fares to passengers affected by today’s grounding of Qantas planes due to on-going industrial action.
AirAsia X head of commercial Darren Wright said, "Anyone holding a valid Qantas ticket to any of our AirAsia X destinations for immediate travel in the next 48 hours can access our special rescue economy fares of AUD$150* (all inclusive) per sector outbound from our Australian ports."
“For example it will be possible for these passengers to reach destinations including London and Paris for $300 one way from Australia.
“We are sympathetic to their plight and doing everything we can to assist with their travel plans.”
AirAsia X flies to Kuala Lumpur from Gold Coast, Melbourne and Perth where passengers can access the extensive AirAsia network onto over 78 destinations.

AirAsia X service counters open three hours prior to flight departure to access the special offer.
The offer applies to long haul AirAsia X (D7) sectors only. Passengers can take advantage of booking other AirAsia low cost fares online at www.airasia.com to reach their onward destination.
