HCM CITY (Biz Hub) — AirAsia Group is offering three million seats from US$25 on flights to Malaysia, Thailand, the Maldives, Manila, Seoul, Osaka, Tokyo, Melbourne, and Sydney to celebrate its milestone of 300 million passengers.

To avail the cheap tickets, booking must be made between August 11 and 16 for travel period between February 15 and August 31 next year.

The world's best low-cost airline for seven consecutive years celebrated the milestone with a bash in Jakarta on August 10.

It awarded its 300 millionth guest, Jakarta-based Jodie Lazuardie, three million BIG points from its loyalty programme, which can be used to redeem flights anywhere within its network.

AirAsia had reached 100 million in October 2010 and 200 million in September 2013.

AirAsia group chief executive officer Tony Fernandes said, "When we started AirAsia 14 years ago, we merely had two aircraft in operations supported by 250 staff across five destinations in Malaysia. Today, we have established operations in five countries including Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Philippines, and India with over 17,000 [staff].

"We will continue to revolutionise air travel to serve the underserved, and most importantly, to give back to the communities in which we operate." — VNS
