Flights in Southeast Asia just got ridiculously cheap

    Flights around Southeast Asia have been known to be pretty affordable, but AirAsia have brought prices down to rock bottom with the new Asean Pass.

    This pass allows travellers to, within a 30 day period,  shuttle between the 10 nations which make up the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), namely: Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.

    How it works

    You pay RM499 (approximately S$190) to get 10 travel credits for a duration of 30 days. Flights under two hours will cost one credit, while those above two hours will cost three. AirAsia also offers a 60-day pass for RM888 (approximately S$335), which comes with 20 credits, valid over a duration of 60 days.

    Of course, the ASEAN Pass does not include flights into Southeast Asia for those from other regions. That said, it’s still an incredibly good deal for anyone travelling around this region.

    AirAsia is looking to win back their customers’ confidence after the tragic crash of QZ8501 between Surabaya and Singapore, and almost concurrently rated as one of the world’s most dangerous airline by an study.

    Would we still take AirAsia?

    Obviously, it is up to you whether you would still fly AirAsia, but due to their good flight routes, decent service standards, and low prices (yeah, we’re cheap), we will still be willing to take the airline again in the future.
