It’s another round of airfare extravaganza, with budget airline Air Asia offering 1 million free tickets to passengers traveling next year between 1 and 31 April 2009.
The booking period, however started on 26 August 2008 and ends on the Malaysia’s Independence Day on 31 August 2008.
The free tickets means that passengers get free seat but will be required to pay airport tax and service charges, and depending on the airport, the tax can range from as low as RM40 to a few hundred ringgits.
Apart from the domestic destinations, the free seat campaigns will cover more than 100 routes and destinations across Asia, as well as their new long haul network, Air Asia X, which travels to China, Perth and Melbourne, Australia.
The airline offered similar package this time around last year, with most of the tickets swept away within a few days of offering.
Air Asia is the pioneer of the budget and low cost airline in Asia, with many awards and accolades under its belt of achievements. It was recently ranked among the world’s 50 Most Innovative Companies in 2008 by Fast Company.
