AirAsia Malaysia offers low fare flights for Chinese New Year & Hari Raya

LONDON – As we approach a busy travel period across the world, AirAsia Malaysia are preparing to support demand by offering increased flight frequencies and promotional offers on tickets, in a bid to support those wanting to reconnect with families and friends over Chinese New Year and Hari Raya.

Riad Asmat, CEO of AirAsia Malaysia said: “As the people’s airline we will always champion the best value fares which is more important than ever right now. The festive season is one of our busiest periods and our goal is to enable everyone to be able to fly home to be reunited with their families during this special time.”

“Therefore, we’ve decided to add extra flights to and from our most popular destinations, enabling everyone to ‘balik kampung’ affordably.”

Chinese New Year & Hari Raya

2023 will bring the festivities of both the Chinese New Year and Hari Raya, which will see millions observe these festivals of celebration. As such, there will be a requirement to travel for many, to reunite with loved ones as families and friends gather to celebrate.

Air Asia has re introduced flights to destinations like India, Cambodia and Vietnam among others this year, as air travel continues to show strong signs of recovery.

“Undoubtedly, these last few years have been tremendously hard for everyone and even as travel is now fast rebounding this year, AirAsia has not been able to put out as many extra flights as we’d like simply because of the ripple effect of the pandemic.”

“We are still constrained by limited planes as our fleet is undergoing mandatory maintenance checks after two years of hibernation and the limited availability of MRO hangars would mean that these checks are taking longer-than-usual.”

“We are doing all we can to support our valued guests and we are so thankful to be bringing back all of our flight crew who were on furlough due to no fault of their own, and we are also now hiring additional cabin crew to support this V-shaped recovery,” Asmat continued. 

V-shaped recovery


The V-shaped recovery that Asmat speaks of is representative of what has happened to the air travel market during the Covid pandemic. The brakes went on for the majority of all business and leisure travel almost immediately, causing grave financial concerns for the industry and workers alike.

What we are seeing now is the rapid uptake and growth of the air travel market, now Covid has began to subside, borders reopen and restrictions ease or stop completely. 

“It’s  incredibly heart-warming to know that as our operations slowly start to resume normalcy, we are able to cater to the rising demand and connect more people to the amazing places in Malaysia and across Asia – and most importantly, to be able to bring them back with their loved ones in time for the festivities.”

“While we’re still constrained by the restart of the global air travel revival, our guests can rest assured that from next month and leading up to Chinese New Year and Hari Raya, we will be adding as many flights as possible for our core domestic and international routes, helping to ensure  everyone can fly back home in time to celebrate.”

“Taking into account the working folks’ busy schedule, we will factor in a number of red-eye flights for the same low price so that there are plenty of choices for everyone. Stay tuned for our upcoming promos and deals on these extra flights!” concluded Riad Asmat.
