Fixed Low Fares

Festival travel is usually expensive because of the extra demand. AirAsia has responded this upcoming Chinese New Year with special extra flights at fixed low fares between Peninsula and East Malaysia from 17th to 30th January 2023.

Fixed low fares on offer

You can fly home either way between Kuala Lumpur and Kuching, Sibu, Bintulu or Miri, or between Johor Bahru and Kuching, Sibu or Miri from RM199* one-way.

Between Kuala Lumpur and Kota Kinabalu or Tawau and Johor Bahru / Kota Kinabalu fares are fixed at RM249* one-way.

All seats are available for booking starting 28th December 2022.

*Promotional fixed fares quoted are for one-way travel inclusive of taxes and fees. These are only applicable to the extra flights and specific flight numbers. Other terms and conditions apply.

In addition to the 52 special extra flights at fixed low fares to six popular destinations in East Malaysia, AirAsia is operating 274 flights weekly at regular fares to the same destinations. So if you want the special fares, you’ll need to be quick.

….. We are pleased that AirAsia is committed to supporting the government’s initiative to bring down fares during the important festive season, despite their operational constraints.Minister of Transport, Anthony Loke

He noted that despite the shortage of aircraft which is affecting all airlines, which makes it difficult to further increase flight frequencies, he applauds this initiative to reconnect families, especially those travelling to and from Sabah and Sarawak. The Minister also encouraged other airlines to emulate this, or other initiatives which can reduce the airfares, especially during festive seasons.

Bo Lingam, AirAsia Aviation Group Limited Group CEO acknowledged the difficulties caused by the recent pandemic and the fast rebound in demand this year.

He added:

… we are unable to put out as many extra flights as we would like, simply because of the ripple effect of the pandemic. However, despite the rising operational costs and leaner fleet size, we are doing all we can and remain  committed to reuniting Malaysians for the upcoming Chinese New Year celebration.

If you’re travelling during the Chinese New Year period You should:

  • arrive at the airport at least two hours ahead of your scheduled departure time (for domestic travel)
    • to avoid congestion
  • self check-in using the airasia Super App or website
    • available from 14 days before the departure date
  • use the e-Boarding Pass to board the flight.
