AirAsia has launched its biggest ‘mega sale’ to date, offering travellers 7 million sale seats for a range of international destinations, including Malaysia and Thailand.

To celebrate the budget airline reaching 700 million passengers, travellers can grab seats and only pay for the taxes and regulatory charges. This starts from under $10 for domestic flights within Malaysia, including flying from Kuala Lumpur, Penang and Kota Kinabalu.

The sale also includes tickets from Australia. Deals include one-way tickets from Perth to Kuala Lumpur for $209, Sydney to Kuala Lumpur or Bangkok for $409, and Melbourne to Kuala Lumpur or Bangkok for $439.

Premium flatbed seats are available from $500. These seats recline to become a full flatbed and also feature privacy screens.

The sale starts now and runs until November 13, 2022. The eligible travel period is from May 1, 2023 to March 30, 2024.

“Celebrating 700 million passengers flown today is another milestone as we reach 21 years of connecting people and places,” AirAsia group chief commercial officer Karen Chan said.

“What better way to share in the joy with our customers who’ve supported us all the way than to launch our 7 million seats campaign with fares starting from under AUD/NZ $10!”

AirAsia was named the World’s Best Low-Cost Airline at the Skytrax awards last month, marking its 13th year in a row winning the award.

This week, AirAsia X - AirAsia’s sister long-haul airline - restarted its direct services from Kuala Lumpur to Melbourne and Perth, as well as its Kuala Lumpur to Auckland via Sydney route.

Aussies can find flights by clicking on the ‘Flights’ icon on the AirAsia Super App or website. AirAsia members can also earn points when they pay with AirAsia cards. Terms and conditions may apply and some routes will be subject to regulatory approval.
