Tan Sri Tony Fernandes, Group CEO of AirAsia, together with YB Anthony Loke, Minister of Transport Malaysia, announced the addition of late night flights at fixed low fares during this year’s Kaamatan, Gawai and Hari Raya Aidilfitri celebrations.
A fixed one-way fare of RM99* from Kuala Lumpur to destinations like Alor Setar, Kota Bharu, Kuala Terengganu and Johor Bahru, RM149* from Peninsular Malaysia to Sarawak and RM199* from Peninsular Malaysia to Sabah will be available from 31 May to 17 June 2019. In addition, AirAsia will also provide low fares on selected routes to East Malaysia from 27 to 30 May 2019. The seats are now open for sale at airasia.com
Tan Sri Tony said that more than 115,000 seats will be made available during this festive period. He also expressed his gratitude to the government for their support in obtaining the flight approvals.
YB Anthony said that the additional flights with fixed fares offered Malaysians the best value during the upcoming festive celebrations, especially for those travelling between Peninsular Malaysia and Sabah and Sarawak.
He also stressed the importance of aviation players and the government in working together to make travelling more affordable for everyone.
This initiative was first launched by the airline with the support of the Ministry of Transport during this year’s Chinese New Year period and was well received by the community. Its success prompted the airline to repeat the initiative for the Kaamatan, Gawai and Hari Raya Aildilfitri celebrations with even more flights and seats.
Guests travelling during these busy periods are advised to check-in online and print out their boarding passes beforehand. Web and mobile check-in is also available 14 days prior to departure on all AirAsia flights. Guests departing from Senai International Airport in Johor Bahru meanwhile, are encouraged to use AirAsia’s Fast Airport Clearance Experience System (FACES). The airline’s all-new facial recognition system offers a seamless experience from check-in to aircraft. Registering for FACES is free of charge and you can learn how to do it here.
The seats are now available for sale. For more information and to book your seats, visit airasia.com
