KUALA LUMPUR: AirAsia has launched a special promotion for Europe-bound passengers stranded because of the volcanic ash that has disrupted flights to Europe.
In a statement Tuesday, AirAsia said affected passengers of any airlines could opt for its RM99 (excluding taxes and fees) promotion to any Asean destination.
The promotion is from Tuesday to Sunday, and for a travel period from Tuesday until May 23.
"Guests will only need to show their flight tickets at any AirAsia sales office or AirAsia sales counter to enjoy this promotion to any Asean destinations (except Myanmar) departing from Malaysia and Singapore," it said.
AirAsia Group regional head of commercial Kathleen Tan said this was AirAsia’s small contribution and offer for affected passengers.
"We came up with this special campaign to offer these stranded passengers a special fare to an alternative holiday destination in Asean," she said.
AirAsia's Asean destinations include Bali, Jakarta, Bangkok, Singapore, Siam Reap, Hanoi, Phuket and Krabi, among others.
On Monday, Airasia Group CEO Datuk Seri Tony Fernandes was reported saying that the airlines would offer flight tickets for as low as RM99 to any destination in the world served by the airline.
