KUALA LUMPUR, June 10 2020:  AirAsia will launch an unlimited pass to help stimulate and revitalise Malaysia’s domestic tourism.

AirAsia Malaysia chief executive officer Riad Asmat said the move is to support the government’s effort, following the announcement that domestic travel in Malaysia will resume today.

He said the AirAsia unlimited pass Cuti-Cuti Malaysia, priced at RM399 nett, is available to all Malaysia-based AirAsia BIG Members to purchase on airasia.com/deals or AirAsia mobile app (under the Deals Tab) from June 11 to 13.

“Buy now and travel later where flights can be redeemed for travel from June 25, 2020 up to March 31, 2021,” said Riad in a statement today.

He said the offer will cover 16 destinations namely, Alor Setar, Langkawi, Penang, Ipoh, Johor Bahru, Kuala Lumpur, Kota Bharu, Kuala Terengganu, Kuching, Miri, Bintulu, Sibu, Kota Kinabalu, Sandakan, Tawau and Labuan.

He said AirAsia is looking forward to working with all tourism stakeholders including hoteliers and travel agents to help revive domestic tourism. 

“For AirAsia, the Unlimited Pass is our key offering for guests to redeem unlimited flights within our domestic network across 16 destinations. 

“By travelling domestically, we can all support the local communities and contribute to rebuilding our economy. As travel reopens we ask for the cooperation and understanding of our valued guests – please remember to practise high personal hygiene and wear a mask,” he said.
