AirAsia Launches Fly Smarter Campaign in Australia

In conjunction with its 9th anniversary in Australia, AirAsia has taken the wraps off its latest campaign to help educate consumers about how they can Fly Smarter.

The airline has unveiled a series of short videos where a brand personality shares insider knowledge on the not often talked about lengths that AirAsia goes to to keep costs low for long haul travel to Asia.

AirAsia Head of Marketing for Australia, Linda Na, said, Our new campaign will appeal to Aussies who choose to Fly Smarter, to save money on their flight and spend the savings at their destination. There is a common misconception that low cost airlines cut corners to offer low fares. We are able to offer low fares because of our meticulous low cost management measures and by carrying only what passengers need and choose.

Considerations underpinning the campaign show:

- How AirAsia operates a modern fleet of aircraft and is able to keep planes as light as possible, which saves on fuel costs.

- An AirAsia Airbus A330 economy seats has the same legroom as expensive airline A330 economy seats.

- Having no first class and less business class space and more room for economy mean more passengers travelling on the aircraft, which splits fuel amongst more passengers.

- AirAsias tablet inflight entertainment cuts out heavy seatback hardware and wiring, which adds to fuel costs even when the seat is flying empty. Instead passengers can choose to bring their own device loaded with the content they want to watch, or hire AirAsias light entertainment and enjoy the fuel cost savings.

- Pay as you go means crews arent handing out unnecessary extras, which means less waste for AirAsia and passengers.

From Australia, AirAsia X flies daily to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, from Perth (14 flights per week) Sydney (17 flights per week), Melbourne (18 flights per week), Gold Coast (11 flights per week) and Auckland (7 flights per week).

AirAsia Indonesia flies up to four times daily to Denpasar, Bali from Perth and four times weekly from Darwin.
