AirAsia Asean Pass for regional travel

KUALA LUMPUR: AirAsia Bhd has introduced its AirAsia Asean Pass where its clients need to buy one pass to travel within the region.

The Asean Pass, which will be commercially available in January 2015, involves a credit based system for flights within Asean.

The pass will have two options: at RM500 with 10 credits (each credit worth RM50), and the second being priced at RM900 for 20 credits.

"This is an ongoing promotion that does not (yet) include airport surcharges. There will be a quota for this which we will decide later. 

"The pass is valid for a month (from the date of first travel),"  said group CEO of AirAsia, Tan Sri Tony Fernandes.

AirAsia said the credit-based system acts like a single currency that reduces the hassle of differing foreign exchange rates as routes will be valued according to credits.

Pass holders will be able to purchase flights to over 137 routes throughout the region with these credits being priced from one credit up to a maximum of eight credits one way.

The pass will have numerous benefits including BIG points which can be used to redeem free AirAsia flights.
