AirAsia X selected Abu Dhabi as hub due to ADAC's persistence

AirAsia X stated it selected Abu Dhabi as its 'virtual' hub in the Middle East and credited its decision to launch services to the destination sooner than expected to Abu Dhabi Airports Company's (ADAC) persistence and willingness to work with the carrier to develop new markets (Emirates Business 24/7, 28-Aug-09). The carrier has postponed the launch of services to Amritsar, Delhi and Mumbai as a result.
