AirAsia is introducing 52 special extra flights at fixed low fares between Peninsula and East Malaysia from 17 to 30 January 2023 to reunite families this Chinese New Year.

Flights from Kuala Lumpur to Kuching, Sibu, Bintulu, and Miri, as well as from Johor Bahru to Kuching, Sibu and Miri will cost RM199* one-way.

Flights from Kuala Lumpur to Kota Kinabalu and Tawau, as well as Johor Bahru to Kota Kinabalu, will cost RM249* one-way.

Travellers can book their seats starting 28 December 2022.

In addition, AirAsia is also operating 274 flights weekly at regular fares to the same destinations.

We are pleased that AirAsia is committed to supporting the government’s initiative to bring down fares during the important festive season, despite their operational constraints. While they are unable to further increase flight frequencies due to the shortage of aircraft which is affecting all airlines, we applaud their hard work to add special extra flights at fixed low fares to reconnect families, especially those travelling to and from Sabah and Sarawak. I encourage other airlines to emulate the same initiative or other initiatives which can reduce the airfares especially during the festive seasons. As we usher in the new year, we look forward to continuously working with industry players such as AirAsia to cater to the needs and welfare of the people.

Transport Minister YB Anthony Loke

Undoubtedly, these last few years have been tremendously hard for everyone and even as travel is now fast rebounding this year, we are unable to put out as many extra flights as we would like, simply because of the ripple effect of the pandemic. “However, despite the rising operational costs and leaner fleet size, we are doing all we can and remain committed to reuniting Malaysians for the upcoming Chinese New Year celebration. Today, we are pleased to be able to introduce special extra late night flights at fixed low fares with a total of 25,020 extra seats to selected cities in East Malaysia for the upcoming festive period.

Important reminders

During the Chinese New Year period, travellers are advised to arrive at the airport 2 hours ahead of their scheduled departure time (for domestic travel) to avoid congestion.

It’s also recommended to self-check-in using the AirAsia Super App, which is available as early as 14 days before the departure date and use the e-Boarding Pass to board the flight.
