Who wants to save on their next big getaway? Well, for the next few days, you can do just that as AirAsia is giving away a whopping 5 million free* seats until 25 September to celebrate its return to the skies.

The ‘free’ seats, of course, do not include fees and surcharges. So, all in, expect domestic flights to cost at least RM23 per person, while international flights begin at RM54.

In addition to this, users of the AirAsia Super App or website will find exceptional flight discounts throughout the Asean region and beyond for travel between 1 January 2023 and 28 October 2023 by tapping the ‘Flights’ icon. You’ll just need to put in some advance preparation time to take advantage of the deal.

Here are some of the destinations in and around Malaysia you can start planning a trip to:

A destination where you can sunbathe on some of Malaysia’s best beaches, drink cocktails, and eat some delicious Malaysian cuisine.


Find yourself peeking the entire city from the summit of the 200-metre-tall Komtar, wander the historic alleys of George Town which have been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List, and take in some of Asia’s finest street art while also enjoying a trip to the beach — this island has it all.

Johor Bahru

Make your way to the southernmost tip of Peninsular Malaysia to experience the country in a whole new way. Sightsee around Johor Bahru’s city centre, visit one of its Instagram-worthy cafes, or use it as gateway to visit our neighbour, Singapore.

Krabi, Thailand

Probably one of the most spectacular holiday destinations in Thailand. This province amazes with imposing limestone cliffs, paradise beaches, and a breathtaking island world.

Phu Quoc, Vietnam

Sun-kissed beaches, a stunning natural setting, excellent seafood, a laid-back vibe, and fantastic scuba diving and snorkelling are all things you may experience when visiting this island. There’s plenty to do in Phu Quoc!


Combining a diverse mix of cultures, and contemporary skyscrapers, Singapore remains a must-see despite the high cost.
