Airasia free seats campaign for flights departing from next Summer and Autumn is now open for booking! This should be the 1st ever round of promotion for flights in the second half of year 2012, which means it’s the best chance for travelers to reserve their flights now since all flights and time during the period are available! Book your flights now until 25th September 2011 so you can grab those zero fare tickets and travel to various parts of Asia next year, from 3rd of May to 27th October 2012. Destinations on offer include Bangkok, Bali, Phuket, Guilin, Hanoi, Shenzen, Macao, Hong Kong, Bangalore, Siem Reap, Krabi and more. However, long haul flight destinations such as London, Tokyo, Melbourne, Beijing and Taiwan are not included.
Bear in mind that Free seats are for flight tickets only and you still need to pay for the incurred airport tax and the recently imposed fuel surchange. So all-in fares should start from RM35 but it’s still a steal of our money! You can also purchase other add-on such as checked in baggage, on board meals, travel insurance or Pick-a-seat at the same time, if you need to.
This is a surprise for me and is a good move from Airasia after the share swapping exercise recently that had both MAS and Airasia merged. It proved to its loyal customers that the Best Low Cost airline in the world is continuing to pursue their objectives in making “Anyone Can Fly” a reality, and had not been changed with the monopoly move that the market concerned earlier. Well, at least for now.
If you have planned your travel for next Summer and Autumn, this free seats campaign is no doubt a great reward for early planners. What I’m waiting to see now is whether their allied partner MAS will do anything to compete, or join, like the one that I booked my Beijing flights in March. But I doubt so… – Travel Feeder, your ultimate photo travel guide
