Now everyone can fly.
The company slogan seems to echo throughout the region within the AirAsia network. With the constant holding of a seat sale wherever AirAsia flies to, nothing is truer than its slogan.
This is the time when most rivals feel the heat of the competition. Whenever AirAsia holds a seat sale, seems like it sends chills down their spine.
Now, it's time for Indian carriers to experience how does it feel to be in competition with the region's behemoth known for its seat sales throughout the year offering insanely low fares, one wonders how AirAsia survives this long with such gimmickry.
Lately, AirAsia launched its biggest seat sale so far in Indian market since the debut of its local subsidiary on June 12 this year giving away a massive 1.5 million seats.
The mega seat sale offers all-inclusive one-way tickets for as low as Rs690 from its Bangalore hub to either Goa, Chennai or Kochi via AirAsia India.
The mega 1.5 million seat sale is likewise available on AirAsia (Malaysia) and Thai AirAsia flights. One-way all-inclusive tickets to Kuala Lumpur from either points in India such as Chennai, Kolkata, Kochi, Bengaluru and Tiruchirappalli are also available for as low as Rs4,999 via AirAsia (Malaysia). The Chennai-Bangkok tickets are up for grabs as well for Rs.4,500 via Thai AirAsia.
Booking is now ongoing via the airline's website (www.airasia.com) until tomorrow, October 5, 2014 with travel validity period between January 15 and June 30, 2015. Alternatively, customers may also book using mobile apps either through iPhone, Android device, Blackberry 10 or even via the airline's own mobile site, mobile.airasia.com.
The airline is already in a negotiation with Indian banks to ink a partnership with them to launch a card loyalty programme to expand its reach in the region. This according to Loh Wai Meng, the CEO of AirAsia BIG, the group's own loyalty programme that is recognized globally.
The scheme is almost similar to most reward system offered by various establishments where accumulated points stored can be used to purchase goods or services from its partners.
In the AirAsia BIG scheme, bank cardholders can convert their reward points to BIG points to be able to fly with AirAsia.
