AirAsia Rewards offers more seamless user exp

AIRASIA BIG Rewards has been rebranded as AirAsia Rewards. This move will merge all features from the previous BIG Rewards app to be available within the AirAsia Super App, and users can enjoy a more seamless app experience as they no longer need to have two separate apps for earning and spending their reward points on the AirAsia Super App. With the new integration, users can benefit from an integrated rewards programme that further strengthens the AirAsia Super App platform. All user details and remaining points will be merged into the Super App and be renamed as AirAsia points, and the premier loyalty rewards points will now be the digital loyalty currency that can be used throughout the entire Super App ecosystem.
