Pay £90 For a Month (!) of Flights on AirAsia

66
Found 1st Mar 2015
I am heading to south asia this summer and was looking for couple of flights and just found out that Air Asia starts doing monthly passes around Southeast Asia.

ASEAN Pass 10 credits

· Costs £90

· 10 credits for use on flights

· 30 days validity from the start of travel

ASEAN Pass+ 20 credits

· Costs £160

· 20 credits for use on flights

· 60 days validity from the start of travel

Built in are many points of flexibility. For instance, the pass can be handed over to another traveler and the bearer's name can be changed so long as the travel hasn't yet begun. Families can also get in on the fun as the Pass is valid for travelers aged 12 and up. The biggest restriction is that flights need to be booked two weeks ahead and each route may only be used once, so last-minute weekend hops can't happen.

As pointed out by dudedude. Thanks for the info

The catches:

* It only includes about half the fare. You still need to pay taxes, fees, and baggage charges if you want it, in every flight
* Availability is restricted in ways they won't tell you until you buy the pass - there is no guarantee of availability on any given flight, even if cash tickets are available. This makes this basically a sucker's bet.
* it's not actually a month of flights, it's 10 credits, with one flight costing either 1 or 3 credits, only valid in SE Asia, and you can't combine passes, e.g., if you have 2 credits left but want to take a 3 credit flight, it will go to waste.
* it's best for single travellers, because each ticket must be separately booked and paid for on each flight, so there's no guarantee of availability for multiple tickets
* (mentioned) can't be used for children under 12
* (mentioned) you must book 14 days ahead, or more

Not suitable for most travellers for many reasons:

Air Asia might not offer the flight you need
For non single travellers it's a pain
No guarantee of availability, even if the flight is empty
For this to offer any saving you need to make maybe half a dozen flights in the space of a month. Most people won't want to take this many.

AirAsia is much better than the budget airlines in Europe.

fair enough

We flew their inaugural flight out of London to see friends in Siem Reap, fantastic service and outstanding price!

Cold, for not bothering to explain the deal properly.

well said! actually seems a bit of a con when you see the price of taxes

Great for backpackers! May take a trip to visit family in the east this summer after all. Thanks OP!

Nice to know, now I have to find the cheapest way to fly to Thailand! Any ideas?

Excellent much cheaper than Switzerland...

Get a flight from Oslo to BKK for £95 return with Norwegian Air

Decent idea of a pass but p*ss poor implementation and they've ended up making a sow's ear out of a silk purse.

Stop whining. People from the uk might be going travelling over there so therefore might find this info useful.

UK nationals can use these flights

preferably not in the sea though.

do not fly air asia if you have a bad back.


A high velocity shunt could very well fix your back though.....

Once you read the terms and conditions, surely the title of this deal is totally misleading.
This could work out to be a good offer if you can meet all the conditions, but it's definitely not a month of flights for £90.

it can be 97.90 one way from Oslo to Bangkok. But not return.

Agreed, certainly not one month..

Not a great offer on some routes E.g. KUL - REP is £27 (3 vouchers) + taxes and the current all-in fare (inc taxes) is 99MYR (£17.73).

Some strange "discounts" to be found. E.g. BKK(DMK) -> PEN -> KUL is only 2 vouchers but BKK(DMK) -> KUL is 3 vouchers.

For Peninsula Malaysia flights you'll probably still be cheaper with FireFly who sometimes have flights for as low as 29MYR including 20kg luggage and booking fees...

What are the dates for these fare please?

Very Poor safety record.

hope they don't crashes ....hot

In what way? Most SE Asian countries give the death penalty for drug smuggling.

Not into deep sea diving

Not suitable for most people... Even for backpackers I feel as you are still paying taxes..
