Unlimited Flights for a Year for $118 With AirAsia X

Unlimited Flights for a Year for $118 With AirAsia X
Taylor Rains

Since its outbreak, the coronavirus has led to a significant drop in worldwide travel demand. As most airlines combat the issue by waiving change and cancellation fees, AirAsia has come up with a different strategy – the AirAsia X Unlimited Pass.

Great Deal for Unlimited Flights

To mitigate the effects the coronavirus is having on the airline industry, AirAsia has introduced the Unlimited Pass, which allows for one year of unlimited travel (valid until March 2, 2021) to five destinations on AirAsia X, including Australia, Japan, Korea, China, and India.

The pass is available to Malaysia-based BIG members and only costs 499 Malaysian Ringgit (USD $118). Those who want to take advantage of this incredible deal will need to purchase the pass by March 7th, but be aware of its specific terms and conditions:

  • The pass is only the base fare, and travelers are still expected to pay taxes, fees, and other add-ons
  • Eligible flights only include those that are over 4 hours in duration and have the carrier code D7 (Air Asia X) or XJ (Thai AirAsia X)
    • Excludes flights to Singapore, Denpasar (Bali), and Jeddah
  • Flights must be point-to-point (no layovers)
  • Pass holders are only allowed three “no-shows” before their pass is revoked
  • Reservations must be made at least 14 days before the flight
  • Pass holders are limited to two flights per day

The BIG Question: Will It Work?

Fear of the virus is causing a lot of people to cancel or postpone travel plans; however, the deal might just convince some weary customers to take a holiday. Furthermore, business travelers may not be able to ignore the cheap international fares.

AirAsia X’s CEO, Benyamin Ismail, is excited about the promotion. He said in a statement, “This is unprecedented. However, AirAsia has always been known as the disruptor and we want to restore traveler’s confidence amid the current sentiment towards flying. Traveling is still very safe as long as everyone travels responsibly and is kept updated by World Health Organisation (WHO) or respective government’s travel advice.”

    Yeah,way to encourage travel to several outbreak hotspots of the virus!

    Sounds like this will be another airline on the list of ones that go belly up this year.

    Well, Australia would be worthwhile, as the KUL-AVV (Melbourne-Avalon) RT would more than cover the cost in one trip. And, you only pay MYR 752 in taxes, fees, and the best seats in coach on what looks like an A330.. But, it is Air Asia. Japan comes out about the same. The regular coach seats on AirAsia are absolute torture, but if you only have to pay the taxes, the best Hot Seats would make this worth the one time fee, especially is you charge it on a CC to protect against cancellation/BK/etc.

    Well, I used to fly a lot on ScareAsia (I mean AirAsia) when I was living in the region.

    For most advance purchase tickets the taxes and fees account for most of the ticket price.

    Further, with AirAsia’s history of time wasting customer service, you are opening up a can of worms with this one.

    But this promo is a moot point for anyone but idiots that would be traveling in a sealed “virus transferring” container for several hours given the current spread of Corona.

    But if Corona dies out and someone has nothing to do all day but book with AirAsia – go at it.

    This idea, which re-surfaces in one form or other every decade or so, never seems to get off the ground. Is this something to do with it looking like desperation on the part of the airline?

    According to the fine print: Can anyone purchase AirAsia Unlimited Pass?
    AirAsia Unlimited Pass is available for all BIG Members within Malaysia. Passengers must be 12 years and above on the day of departure to travel.
    So don’t you have to be in Malaysia to buy it?

    I can’t find a link to this on their website or mobile app. They have no phone number to call. Does anyone know how to find the line? I’m a little suspicious of an airline with no phone support…

    I’m afraid gandsduhon is probably right. I read the T & C, it clearly says AirAsia Unlimited Pass is available for all BIG Members within Malaysia. It also says: unlimited* flights between Kuala Lumpur and Australia, Japan, India and more. So you must originate is Kuala Lumpur. I don’t think this is avail in US market…

    It is good for a year so 6 months from now either Corona will not be a big deal or everyone is in a lot of trouble and travel in asia if not all travel will be stopped.

    I fly between Perth and KL on AAX once or twice a year and also have family members in KL who fly the reverse multiple times a year on AAX. Offered to buy them the tickets but they don’t want to travel even to Perth due to the virus, seems thats the general feeling in KL too.

    Just got it! Had to use a VPN, and luckily GhostVPN has a 24-hr free trial so I used that and booked it. Had to turn the VPN to Malaysia on to get the promo (as it won’t show outside of Malaysia) and then turn off at booking as the VPN triggered a “3D” verification itssue with my credit card.

    It’s ultra-restrictive. One roundtrip will make up the cost of the ticket. Subsequent trips will only incur additional taxation and surcharges. To fly BKK-KUL, you must connect in a third country.
