First low-cost Asian airline to fly to US

First low-cost Asian airline to fly to USMalaysian budget carrier AirAsia says it has agreed with the US authorities to fly its jetliners to American airports that will be the first low-cost Asian airline to operate between the two countries.

The US flights will be operated by its long-haul affiliate, AirAsia X, which currently focuses on destinations in Asia-Pacific, the Middle East and Africa.

The airline says it's considering flights to several US states including Hawaii. It's hoping it will have more success in the US than it did in Europe, where it abandoned flights to London and Paris in 2012 because of weak demand.

For US travelers who are willing to waive some of the comforts of international flights, AirAsia's services could offer a cheaper route to Asia.
