Kuala Lumpur-based low-cost carrier AirAsia X will start flights out of Adelaide on October 30.

Direct services from Adelaide to Kuala Lumpur will fly four times weekly from Adelaide International Airport to its hub in Kuala Lumpur, the airline announced today.

Adelaide will be AirAsia X's fifth Australian destination after the Gold Coast, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney. The route will be operated by a new Airbus A330-300 aircraft with a seating capacity of 377.

The new service was announced by AirAsia X CEO Azran Osman-Rani during a ceremony attended by South Australian Premier Jay Weatherill, Tourism Minister Leon Bignell and Adelaide Airport managing director Mark Young at the Adelaide Convention Centre.

The airline released promotional fares from Adelaide to Kuala Lumpur from just $99 one way on economy and from as low as $599 one way on premium.

The fares are available for bookings online between July 30 and August 4, 2013, for travel between October 30, 2013 and August 5, 2014.
