AIRASIA Bhd will be offering one-way airfares as low as RM12 for flights to Penang, Johor Baru, Terengganu and Kota Baru starting Sunday until Oct 17.
The travellers can fly between Nov 1, 2021, until April 30, 2022.
Passengers can now book the flights via the SuperApp by clicking on the “Flights” icon and those with credit accounts can use them to redeem these flights.
Those with BigPay and AirAsia Hong Leong Bank cards can enjoy priority booking from 10am on Sunday.
Guests would also have the chance of saving up to 60% with AirAsia’s Snap deals which include a return ticket and a three-day two-night hotel stay which would only run between tomorrow and this Friday.
The latest flash sale features a flight and hotel package to Penang which only costs a total of RM179 per pax where the booking is available through the “Snap” icon in the app.
Those who opt to book their hotel stay separately can still enjoy 10% off by using the “AAHOTEL10” promo code at the “Hotels” icon.
Eligible guests who have redeemed their AirAsia-Ministry of Arts, Tourism and Culture Cuti-Cuti Malaysia e-vouchers can use them to claim a discount of RM50 on any AirAsia Malaysia domestic flights which are booked between Oct 4 to Nov 30.
However, the vouchers are still up for grabs on a first-come-first-serve basis and are subject to terms and conditions.
AirAsia Malaysia will be operating a daily flight schedule of 61 flights across 16 domestic destinations.
The low-cost airline said that more routes would be added later while it expects flight frequencies to increase as travel demand grows in tandem with the reopening of more leisure destinations soon and subject to approval from the authorities.
AirAsia Malaysia CEO Riad Asmat (picture) said the firm will continue to work closely with all relevant regulators, the federal and state governments, civil aviation and health authorities to ensure the highest standards of compliance and conformance are in place for every single flight.
In its efforts to reduce physical interaction which is a preventive measure in reducing the Covid-19 transmission, AirAsia has taken a step forward by making it mandatory for passengers to check in using their SuperApp.
This process also allows instant health document verification through the app’s integration with MySejahtera, enabling guests to pass through the airport clearance and boarding process with an e-Boarding Pass.
“Having the AirAsia Super App is the best choice as not only you’d need it for your check-in, it is the only all-in-one app that guests may need for their journey — from flight to hotel bookings, checking in, health document verification, through to boarding — with the e-Boarding Pass and inflight services onboard.
“This is where you can get the best travel deals and enjoy a multitude of other lifestyle services like food delivery, e-hailing, online shopping, fintech services and many more,” Riad said further.
AirAsia would be implementing their own facial recognition system “Faces” which would make the boarding process even more swift and efficient.
Those who wish to be verified using this technology in their upcoming flights can just simply approach any service counter.
AirAsia has spent more than 11⁄2 years improving and revamping its flight procedure and processes.
Only fully-vaccinated guests are allowed on flights while fully-vaccinated employees can only operate flights and be on-duty at airport terminals to ensure the health and safety of its guests and employees.
