AirAsia’s maiden flight to Okinawa, Japan landed at Naha Airport, marking the beginning of a unique low-cost passageway connecting the island with East Asia and Southeast Asia, providing over 150,000 visitor seats annually.
Tan Sri Rafidah Aziz, chairman of AirAsia X said: “With the addition of Okinawa as a new destination, from now on, AirAsia X flies to 35 destinations; and together with AirAsia Group, our combined fleet of over 250 aircraft can now connect Okinawa with over 150 destinations across Asean, Asia Pacific, the Middle East and the US.”
Guests from Kuala Lumpur to Okinawa Naha are not required to obtain a visa during their one-hour stopover in Taipei and may return to their seats after clearing a quick security check of their carry-on bags and inflight belongings.
The carrier is also partnering with Berjaya Hotels & Resorts in a joint-marketing collaboration to promote travel to Okinawa following the hotel group’s recent launch of ANSA Okinawa Resort, a 123-room property located on the high ground of Uruma City with panoramic views of the East China Sea and the Pacific Ocean.
