SINGAPORE -- From Monday onwards, American Express card members in Singapore can use their card to purchase the low-cost carrier AirAsia's tickets to enjoy its popular low fares.
AirAsia said the airline now accepted American Express cards for bookings both online and through its call centres and sales counters here.
The two companies announced here their partnership to offer consumer and corporate travellers more choices and value.
The announcement of the alliance was made by American Express Regional Vice President for Merchant Services, Peter Kapoor, and AirAsia Commercial Regional Head Kathleen Tan.
In line with the launch, American Express card members can enjoy flights from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur, Pulau Pinang, Langkawi and Kuching at a price as low as S$40, and S$68 for Bangkok, which are valid for bookings made from May 11 to May 17, and for travel from this June 1 to Jan 31 next year.
Malaysian holders of the card have benefited from similar arrangement when American Express and AirAsia announced their collaboration in Kuala Lumpur last month.
