Travellers on AirAsia can now enjoy savings of up to 50% when they take advantage of the airline’s online ‘Pre-booked Baggage Supersize’ fees.
AirAsia Head of Ancillary Income, Rafizah Amran said, “Last year, 660,000 people paid RM91 million for excess baggage. At the end of their trip, guests are often faced with problems of having baggage with excessive weight and exorbitant baggage fees, which is not a very happy ending to the journey. By utilizing our ‘Supersize’ baggage option online, guests can enjoy great savings up to 50% compared to paying excess baggage fees at the counter.”
AirAsia’s 20kg ‘Supersize’ option is offered at RM30 online. For non-‘Supersize’, a baggage of 20kg (15kg allowance + 5kg excess) will incur the cost of RM30 for the first 15kg and up to RM20 for each subsequent kg at the counter. The result, a whopping total of RM130 at the counter compared to a mere RM30 online pre-book for the same baggage weight of 20kg.
