We are pleased to launch this promotional fare to our registered Malaysian voters residing overseas and we are confident that our low fares will help stimulate and trigger the travel demand among Malaysian voters across the region. We are aware that all Malaysians, local or abroad are the rightful stakeholders of our nation and hence, as a registered Malaysian voter, it is indeed important to come home and vote in person, said AirAsia Xs Chief Executive Officer, Azran Osman-Rani. We are always constantly looking for ways to enhance and improve our services and offerings; and offering affordable fares for our Malaysians overseas to put their X in the ballot box is part of our initiative in serving our beloved country; Malaysia. Therefore, we encourage all eligible Malaysians to return home via our network across the region and take advantage of this promotional fare to fulfill their constitutional duty.

Guests who are keen to take up this promotional offer must be a registered Malaysian voter. Those interested should contact the AirAsia X directly.
