AirAsia marks 20 years of connecting Singapore with Asia Pacific

The low-cost airline AirAsia is celebrating 20 years of service at Changi Airport, asserting its status as the largest foreign airline group operating in Singapore. During this period, the airline has been instrumental in promoting trade, fostering business ties, and boosting tourism between Singapore and other Southeast Asian nations. A notable achievement includes the initiation of flights to Yogyakarta, which opened up new avenues for economic cooperation and easier access. Logan Velaitham, CEO of AirAsia Singapore, expressed pride in the airline’s two decades of service, highlighting Singapore’s importance as a virtual hub and the remarkable growth in flights, especially to Malaysia and Thailand.

Velaitham stated, “We are proud to celebrate two decades of operational excellence in Singapore.” He further elaborated on the significance of the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore route as the busiest international flight path, boasting 4.9 million seats annually. Additionally, the increase in weekly flights to Bangkok from 14 in 2004 to 28 showcases the airline’s commitment to expanding connectivity. The CEO also mentioned future plans for growth, aiming to increase the number of guests and enhance tourism opportunities across the region.

To commemorate this milestone, AirAsia announced a “FREE SEATS” promotion, offering zero base fares to several destinations within Malaysia, Thailand, and Indonesia, starting from SGD148 to other spots in the Asia Pacific. This promotion is valid for bookings made from 19 February 2024 until 25 February 2024, for travel dates between 1 September 2024 and 18 June 2025. Additionally, a 20% discount on Fast Pass purchases and Xtra Carry-On will be available, providing passengers with benefits such as skipping immigration queues and extra carry-on baggage allowances.

The celebration of AirAsia’s 20th anniversary at Changi Airport was accompanied by an event organised by the Changi Airport Group (CAG) at Terminal 4 (T4), where AirAsia operates as the largest low-cost carrier.
