In case you have not had the chance to read the headlines yet, and if you intend to travel second or early third quarter of next year, this piece of AirAsia news may be for you.
Air Asia is doing it again! They are offering 500,000 free seats with no fuel surcharge. Booking period is from today, Wed, until Sunday. Travel date for the free seats is from June 22 to Oct 24 next year.
In fact, all AirAsia and AirAsia X passengers will now no longer have to pay for the fuel surcharge for all local and international flights. However, should fuel prices increase in the future, the fuel surcharge would be reintroduced. Fuel surcharge can set a traveller back an average of RM47 per person, so there is some savings there.
Passengers would now only have to pay for the fare, airport tax and administration fee when flying with Air Asia, and, of course, the check-in baggage handling fee.
Talk about baggage, what's the biggest number of bags that you have ever checked in? Anything close to the number that Mariah Carey and her husband, Nick Cannon, brought along on their 3-night visit to London? Between them, they had 20 bags.
But I digress. So, if travel is on your cards for next year, make it an AirAsia destination and book your free seat. You have until Sunday.
