AirAsia has welcomed the announcement by the Sarawak Disaster Management Committee (SDMC) to further relax Sarawak travel rules, which allows thousands of Sarawakians residing in the Peninsula to return to their home state. Travellers with credit accounts may use them to redeem for these flights from Kuala Lumpur to Kuching, Miri, Sibu and Bintulu.
The airline has expressed its commitment to give the best value and service for their safe passage home and looks forward to bringing in more tourists into the State. Watch for on-going promotions to get the best deals.
…. Tourism is one of the key engines for growth, accounting for 15% of the national GDP and almost 8% for Sarawak alone, providing jobs for over 240,000 people, that is close to 20% of the State’s employment. CEO of AirAsia Malaysia, Riad Asmat
Sarawak travel rules relax, not safety
AirAsia is taking the lead in bringing back confidence in flying, by making check-in via the airasia Super App mandatory for all passengers. Apart from allowing for instant health document verification through its integration with MySejahtera, this process allows travellers to pass through the airport clearance and boarding process with an e-Boarding Pass. This significantly reduces physical interaction and paper contact, a key preventive measure in curtailing the spread of Covid-19 and other viruses.
For added convenience and security, the airline is rolling out their FACES facial recognition boarding system nation-wide to make the entire journey fully digital and paperless. This kicks-off at klia2 in November, followed progressively by all other airports in Malaysia including Kuching, Sibu, Miri and Bintulu.
