May 6 (TravelAndy): Over 6,50,000 students and staff of 20 public universities in Malaysia will shortly be able to travel more economically as part of an Air Asia program.
The airline recently signed a memorandum of agreement with 20 public higher learning institutions, providing access to its Waran Perjalanan Udara Awam service, which was previously limited to civil servants only.
This program allows passengers benefits such as flexible flight booking and flight change, complimentary baggage allotment up to 40kg, in-flight meals, seat selection with waived service counter fees.
With AirAsia’s wide domestic network, the programme intends to ease “travel plans for students and staff of the public universities” Aireen Omar, Air Asia’s chief executive officer was quoted as saying. He said the travellers will also be covered by Tune Insurance AirAsia Travel Protection plan.
