On Monday (October 11, 2021), AirAsia announced that following Malaysia’s reopening of interstate travel and tourism activities, they will launch 61 daily flights to 16 domestic destinations. AirAsia Malaysia will offer service from Kuala Lumpur to Langkawi (63x weekly), Alor Setar (10x weekly), Kota Kinabalu (35x weekly), Bintulu (2x weekly), Kuching (10x weekly), Labuan (14x weekly), Miri (4x weekly), Penang (21x weekly), Sibu (2x weekly), Sandakan (21x weekly), Johor Bahru (10x weekly), Kuala Terengganu (28x weekly), Tawau (28x weekly) and Kota Bharu (35x weekly).
In Monday’s announcement, AirAsia Malaysia’s CEO Riad Asmat, said,
“The government deserves the greatest credit for the successful rollout of the national vaccination programme which has now culminated in the safe resumption of domestic travel. AirAsia 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 we operate.
“AirAsia is taking the lead by making check-in via the airasia Super App mandatory for all guests. Apart from allowing for instant health document verification through its integration with MySejahtera, this process will also allow guests to pass through the airport clearance and boarding process with an e-Boarding Pass that will significantly reduce physical interaction and paper contact, a key preventive measure in curtailing the spread of Covid-19 and other viruses.
“Having the airasia Super App is the best choice as not only you’d need it for your check-in, it is in fact 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.
“Very soon, AirAsia will roll out FACES, our contactless facial recognition system that will make the boarding process even more swift and efficient. We would like to encourage everyone to enroll into FACES now with just a few simple steps on the airasia Super App and when you’re at the airport for your next flight, just approach any service counter to have your FACES verified against your travel documents and you’re good to fly without having to worry about holding any paper documents in hand.”
To celebrate the reopening of interstate travel, the carrier is offering low one-way fares from Kuala Lumpur to Penang, Johor Bahru, Terengganu and Kota Bharu from only RM12. Discounted flights are now available for booking on the AirAsia Super App by clicking the ‘Flights’ icon through October 17th, for travel from November 2, 2021 through April 30, 2022.
