Inaugural flight of Indonesia AirAsia X Airbus A330-300 to Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport (CSIA), Mumbai.
The flight operated from Bali to Mumbai via Kuala Lumpur as “XT852”.
The airline has two Airbus A330-300s in its fleet. This flight was operated by 11 years old airframe, PK-XRA.
She is powered by 2 Rolls Royce Trent 772B Engines which cost $23.25M, weigh 6,160 kg and produce 72,000 lbf of thrust each.
In a world dominated by plain/white liveries, Air Asia’s bright red livery looks fantastic, especially on their Airbus A330s. I enjoyed photographing this aircraft so much.
Unfortunately, the airline stopped operations to Mumbai few months later, and the current status of their fleet shows stored as well.
Hope they fly again soon.
