SEPANG, 20 May 2020 – AirAsia guests with flight bookings departing between 23 March and 31 July 2020 can now choose between a Credit Account with a 2 year validity period or unlimited flight changes for flights departing up to 31 October 2020.

Options available for guests with eligible bookings are:
· Unlimited flight changes: Change to any new travel date before 31 October 2020 on the same route for an unlimited number of times without any additional cost subject to seat availability; OR
· Credit account: Retain the value of the flight booking in the guest’s AirAsia BIG Member account for future travel with AirAsia to be redeemed within 730 calendar days (2 years) from the issuance date. The travel date of the new booking can fall on any date within the published flight schedule on airasia.com.
Within the next few weeks, the validity period of all unused Credit Accounts issued to guests affected by COVID-19 travel disruptions earlier will also be automatically extended to 2 years. No action is required from these guests.
