Dave Segal

AirAsia X is seeking to begin the first-ever service from Malaysia to Hawaii before the end of the year.

The low-cost, long-haul airline of the AirAsia Group is proposing to fly four times a week between Kuala Lumpur and Honolulu beginning Nov. 1, with a fueling stop in Osaka, Japan, according to an application filed Monday with the U.S. Department of Transportation.

The Malaysian carrier said it will use Airbus A330-300 aircraft with 12 premium seats and 365 economy seats. It would be the airline’s first flight to any U.S. destination.
