AirAsia has announced that its RM50 e-vouchers, which are distributed in conjunction with the Cuti-Cuti Malaysia campaign, are now redeemable via its official website.
According to AirAsia, a total of 24,000 RM50 e-vouchers are available for redemption, and eligible Malaysians can redeem one e-voucher per person on a first-come first-served basis. Travellers can then use the e-vouchers for any AirAsia Malaysia domestic flights (flight code AK) that are booked between 30 November 2020 to 13 December 2020, for the travel period between 7 December 2020 to 31 March 2021. Note as well that these e-vouchers can only be used for flight purchases on AirAsia’s website.

The plan – which is intended to revive the national economy via domestic tourism – will be implemented by MOTAC’s agency, Tourism Malaysia.

The chief executive officer of AirAsia Malaysia, Riad Asmat said that the low-cost carrier is confident that recovery is well underway, and that it is well-prepared to meet the pent-up travel demand. “We are expanding our domestic network with new direct accessibility between cities.
