Here’s What You Need To Know About The New AirAsia Unlimited – Asean International Pass

Last week, local low-cost airline AirAsia teased its new subscription plan to succeed the old Super Plus subscription, called the Unlimited – Asean International Pass. Details were light at the time, which was understandable as it was a teaser.

Now, more the airline has laid out more details about the new subscription offer. Overall, it looks to be the superior offering, but this is naturally being offset by the higher price.

Pricing

In case you missed it, the AirAsia Unlimited – Asean International Pass costs RM1,188 per year, or RM99 a month. The airline has also announced that you can get a RM50 discount if you pay using BigPay.

On the flip side, if you choose to go the monthly subscription route, you can also do so via BigPay if you don’t have a credit card. However, but doing so will incur a charge of RM106.20 a month instead.

As for what the AirAsia Unlimited – Asean International Pass actually offers, this comes in the form of free base fare flights for a year starting 1 May 2024. The key phrase here is “free base fare”, as while your flight may be free, you’ll still have to pay for things like airport taxes, and add-ons like checked-in luggage and meals.

In the official terms and conditions page – which was updated after the teaser was released – the free flights also only apply if your destination is one of the countries listed by the company. These include Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, Indonesia, Singapore, Vietnam, Cambodia, Myanmar, Laos or Brunei.

Fine Print

Probably not a phrase you expect to see outside of internet related matters, but with an unlimited free offering comes an associated fair use policy (FUP). In the case of the AirAsia Unlimited – Asean International Pass, this means having to book for a flight at least 14 days in advance, within the travel window mentioned above.

You can also only have two active bookings at a time under the AirAsia Unlimited – Asean International Pass, though they can be either one-way or return flights. You’ll have to then wait until you’ve made one of the trips before you can book another one. And while you can have two trips in the same day, they cannot also be from the same departure location. In the same vein, you can also only afford to miss three flights booked this way before your pass gets revoked.

Also, as you’d expect, the AirAsia Unlimited – Asean International Pass has a few of what it calls Embargo Periods where you’re not allowed to claim free flights. As listed in the updated T&C page, here’s the list of Embargo Periods:

  • 30 October 2024 – 4 November 2024 : All Souls/Saints Day – Z2
