AirAsia to add 11,400 fixed-fare seats to Sabah, Sarawak for Hari Raya

SEPANG: A total of 11,400 AirAsia seats to east Malaysia states will be offered at fixed fares in conjunction with the Hari Raya Aidilfitri celebrations this year.

The Transport Minister said that the campaign would be the second after the airline launched the same campaign for Chinese New Year in January.

“We’ve come together as a nation to overcome the tough past few years and it’s commendable of AirAsia to ensure that inexpensive travel is an available option for many,” said Anthony Loke.

He said the fixed fares will enable thousands of people to ‘balik kampung’ and reunite with their nearest and dearest in an affordable manner.

“I implore other industry players to follow suit and bring down the cost of travel ‒ particularly during the festive periods so that they can enjoy making precious memories with their friends and families,” he said at the launching event at AirAsia’s headquarters here on Tuesday (March 7).

The flights from Kuala Lumpur and Johor Baru are fixed at RM199 to Sarawak and RM249 to Sabah and the value fares would serve Kuching, Sibu, Bintulu and Miri in Sarawak and to Kota Kinabalu, Sandakan and Tawau in Sabah.

Loke also said that AirAsia would be adding an extra 62 flights to its current arrangements to ensure that the airline could meet the demands by travellers upon the festive season.

The booking for the fixed fares would start today at 6pm, and the travel period will be between 19 to 21 April and between 28 to 30 April.
