AirAsia X is rolling out the red carpet to passengers at Kuala Lumpur’s Low-Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT).

For departing passengers, the new Red Carpet service includes a dedicated check-in counter, priority baggage tagging and loading, access to the LCCT’s Plaza Premium lounge, fast track immigration, security clearance and priority boarding with buggy transport to the aircraft. Passengers arriving at the LCCT will receive priority baggage delivery.

The offerings were initially launched for AirAsia passengers last year, but the service has now been extended to passengers of AirAsia X, the low-cost carrier’s long-haul subsidiary.

Guest can either pre-book the service online for MYR100 (US$32) or request the service at the airport for a walk-in rate of MYR125.

“The Red Carpet service option is an added ancillary value to our long-haul and low fare service offerings. We constantly ensure that our guests’ needs are met by improving and enhancing our services. By going the extra mile, we hope to provide a more comfortable and convenient travel option for guests travelling across our network,” said AirAsia X’s CEO, Azran Osman-Rani.

The move marks the latest ancillary offerings from AirAsia X. Last month the airline unveiled plans to add child-free ‘quiet zones’ on its aircraft.
