AirAsia's long-haul airline AirAsia X is moving its flights to Melbourne’s Avalon Airport, 50 kilometres South-west of the Victorian capital.

Tickets have gone on sale for the first-ever international flights from Avalon Airport that will take off on December 5, 2018.

The double-daily flights will depart mid-morning and later in the evening, and will replace flights from Melbourne Tullamarine airport after almost a decade of operations.

AirAsia X Malaysia CEO Benyamin Ismail said, “Since announcing we'd be the flagship carrier from the state of the art new terminal at Avalon Airport in February, we've been preparing to make this much anticipated open-for-sale announcement.

“In preparation, we're ramping up our presence in Victoria through a range of regional and state tourism marketing and branding partnerships alongside greater engagement with the local travel trade.

“We're also making tweaks to our inflight and ground service offerings, introducing Australian cabin crew and revamping our onboard menu to include locally sourced and produced Victorian items.”

Promotional all-in fares for one-way travel only are being offered for a short time.
