AirAsia, the world’s best low cost airline for 12 consecutive years is all geared up to welcome everyone onboard, following the government’s announcement of the resumption of interstate travel and the reopening of tourism activities.
The airline assures that the highest safety standards are in place as part of its Covid-19 mitigation plan including by accepting only fully-vaccinated guests onboard, making it mandatory to check-in via the airasia Super App that integrates with vaccination records on MySejahtera, and soon rolling out FACES facial recognition boarding system — making the entire journey fully digital and paperless thus further minimising possible human contact between its guests and employees.
To kickstart the resumption of interstate travel, AirAsia will operate a daily flight schedule of 61 flights across its 16 domestic destinations. To start it off, AirAsia Malaysia (flight code AK) will fly 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). More routes will be added and frequencies increased as the travel demand grows in tandem with the reopening of more leisure destinations in the near future and subject to approval from the authorities.
Guests can enjoy unbeatable low fares for flights from Kuala Lumpur to Penang, Johor Bahru, Terengganu and Kota Bharu from only RM12 one way*. The flights are available for booking on the airasia Super App by clicking on the ‘Flights’ icon from now until 17 October 2021, and travel from 1 November 2021 until 30 April 2022. Guests with credit accounts may use them to redeem for these flights. Priority booking for BigPay and airasia Hong Leong Bank card holders happens from 1000hrs on 10 October 2021.

Riad Asmat, CEO of AirAsia Malaysia 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 enrol 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.”
AirAsia has spent the period of downtime in travel over the past one-and-a-half years to further improve and revamp its flight procedures and processes. In the highest interest of safety and wellbeing of all its guests and employees, AirAsia will accept only fully-vaccinated guests on board its flights, and likewise ensure only fully-vaccinated employees to operate flights and be on-duty at airport terminals.
