AirAsia X plans to increase capacity in the Malaysia-Australia market by 40% over the next five months from about 26,400 currently to 37,000 weekly seats in Dec-2013. AirAsia X typically adds capacity to Australia for the peak season but its Dec-2013 schedule also represents a 40% increase compared to Dec-2012 capacity levels. For the first time, AirAsia X will have more seats to Australia than rival Malaysia Airlines. Based on current Dec-2013 schedules, AirAsia X will account for 49% of total nonstop capacity in the Malaysia-Australia market compared to 44% for MAS and 7% for Emirates, which serves the Kuala Lumpur-Melbourne route with Qantas as a codeshare partner.
