Great news for Japan travel lovers as AirAsia X begins its Narita Tokyo flights effective 20th November 2019. 

The maiden flight D7552 departed KLIA 2 at 12.15 AM and is the first high-speed WiFi-equipped wide-body Airbus A330 aircraft for AirAsia X.

Passengers on board the inaugural flight to Narita, Tokyo.
The four times weekly return services will deliver over 150,000 additional visitor seats annually through Kuala Lumpur’s KLIA2 and Narita International Airports.

This flight route will also assist in boosting tourism and the economy ahead of Visit Malaysia 2020 and also the Tokyo Olympic Games 2020 in a two-way benefit for Japan and Malaysia. 

CEO Benyamin Ismail quoted;

“We are very proud to provide more options for our guests travelling to Tokyo, Japan, with our four weekly return services to Narita International Airport, complementing our existing services to Tokyo Haneda. 
This new service signifies our commitment to accelerating our growth in Japan and we are confident the route will be popular, especially for guests exploring Tokyo and the neighbouring northeast region in Tohoku.” 
“We wish to thank our airport, tourism and local government partners as well as the authorities for making this route a reality.”

The aircraft used is also the airline's first A330 aircraft to be equipped with high-speed AirAsia WiFi services. 

The high-speed WiFi will allow guests to stream videos and connect with real-time social media updates 35,000ft in the sky. 

For the inaugural flight, AirAsia BIG members on board were also treated to a complimentary 10MB internet plan.

About Narita Airport

Narita is the main international airport for Japan and is located just out of the main Tokyo Metropolis. From Narita, you can easily catch a train into Tokyo city while there are also express buses. 

Previously in early 2019, I visited Tokyo and explored both airports where I wrote an article review on Narita Airport and also a comparison on Narita Airport and KLIA.

The good news is that AirAsia X will be flying into Narita four times a week, and the arrival is perfect for Malaysians planning to visit Tokyo. 

Midnight departures will see passengers arrive at 8.15 AM in Tokyo which gives them one full day to explore the metropolis. 

Below is the AirAsia X Narita flight schedule;
