AirAsia celebrates 300 million passengers with RM3 fare

AirAsia has announced “celebratory” fares on three million seats, from as low as RM3 one way, to celebrate 300 million passengers having flown on the airline.

You can fly from Kuala Lumpur to Langkawi, Bandung, Pattaya, Kalibo, Maldives, Hyderabad, Kaohsiung, Siem Reap, Nanning, Xi’an, Osaka and Seoul; Penang to Singapore, Manila and Kochi, and from Johor Baru to Lombok, Bangkok and Ho Chi Minh City.

The promo seats are up for grabs on www. airasia. com and on the airline’s mobile applications until Aug 16, for travel between Feb 15- Aug 31, 2016.

To mark its 300 million passenger milestone, the budget airline provided its 300 millionth guest, Jakarta-based art director Jodie Lazuardie, with three million BIG points from AirAsia’s loyalty programme, which can be used to redeem any flight within AirAsia’s network.

AirAsia reached its 100-millionth milestone in October 2010, and the 200-millionth mark in September 2013.

AirAsia group chief executive officer Tan Sri Tony Fernandes, who hosted a reception for Lazuardie at the Ritz Carlton hotel in Jakarta, said the airline had come a long way since its inception 14 years ago.

“Today, we have operations in Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Philippines, and India with over 17,000 Allstars, with 199 aircraft flying to over 100 destinations in 22 countries.

“We will continue to revolutionise air travel to serve the underserved, and most importantly, to give back to the communities in which we operate,” he said in a statement yesterday.
