AirAsia has introduced an RM399 unlimited pass for domestic travel to allow people to fly as many times as they want within the country
According to a statement issued today, 10 June, the low-cost carrier has come up with this move to stimulate and revitalise Malaysia's domestic tourism amidst the lifting of the interstate travel restrictions.
"The AirAsia Unlimited Pass Cuti-Cuti Malaysia, priced at RM399 nett, is available to all Malaysia-based AirAsia BIG Members," the statement said, adding that it can be purchased on AirAsia's website.
The pass is available from 11 June to 13 June 2020
"Buy now and travel later where flights can be redeemed for travel from 25 June 2020 up to 31 March 2021," AirAsia said, adding that the offer will cover 16 destinations across the country.
They are Alor Setar, Langkawi, Penang, Ipoh, Johor Bahru, Kuala Lumpur, Kota Bharu, Kuala Terengganu, Kuching, Miri, Bintulu, Sibu, Kota Kinabalu, Sandakan, Tawau, and Labuan.
You can purchase the unlimited pass starting 10am tomorrow, 11 June, until 11:59pm on Saturday, 13 June, through the deals section of AirAsia's website or mobile app.
However, the pass covers the base fare only and is subject to government taxes and fees, add ons, and other applicable charges that you will have to pay from your wallet.
"Flight bookings must be made at least 14 days before departure, embargo period, and other terms and conditions apply," according to the statement.
