Set the pace for 2012 with a Formula 1 Grand Prix trip, flying AirAsia X


Need some cheer to escape the February gloom?


Catch a last minute ticket to a Spring Grand Prix in sunnier climates - the Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix is in Melbourne from 15-18 March 2012 and the Petronas Malaysia Grand Prix follows soon afterwards from 23-25 March 2012 at the Sepang International Circuit. Fly there in style with AirAsia X, Asia’s leading long-haul, low-fare affiliate of AirAsia.  


All-in fares to Kuala Lumpur from London start from as low as £229* and from £90* to Melbourne from Kuala Lumpur. 


Melbourne’s track circuit is temporarily built on  the road that circles Albert Park Lake, a small man-made lake just south of the Central Business District of Melbourne. The city is considered the ‘cultural capital of Australia,’ being the birthplace of  institutions such as Australian film, Australian television, Australian rules football, the Australian impressionist art movement and Australian dance. 


Malaysia’s Sepang International Circuit is noted for its sweeping corners and wide straights. The unusual layout boasts a very long back straight separated from the pit straight by just one very tight hairpin. Why not take advantage of AirAsia’s extensive low-fare high-value south-east Asia route network and enjoy an extended tropical getaway from Kuala Lumpur to the beaches of exotic Bali from just £40*? Or fly and flop on the beautiful Malaysian archipelago of Langkawi, located in the Andaman Sea and boasting UNESCO World Geopark status from just £18*Or even jet off to sunny Singapore from just £11* to take in fabulous cuisine, night markets and unrivalled modern Asian architecture. 


The promotion period is available for booking from 4pm 14 February 2012 -  4pm 26 February 2012, for the travel period of 22 February 2012 - 31 March 2012 via


AirAsiaGo, is the one-stop online travel portal where you’ll find everything you’re looking for – rooms to meet every budget, activities of every kind and travel services to compliment. For more information and to book, please visit
