AirAsia X in talks with South Korea's Jeju over Kuala Lumpur service

Malaysian budget carrier responding to interest in island resort

SEOUL -- AirAsia X is in talks with Jeju's provincial government about direct flights between Kuala Lumpur and the South Korean resort island.

Jeju officials said discussions were held last week in Kuala Lumpur about frequencies in the absence presently of direct flights. "We hope that we will have flights by the end of this year," said Seo Hye-jin, a provincial official. "We have been marketing in Southeast Asia since last year." She declined to speculate on possible frequencies while discussions are ongoing.
