AirAsia Launches Improved Frequent Flyer Programme

AirAsia has introduced its overhauled loyalty programme, the Freedom Flyer Programme powered by AirAsia BIG Loyalty, to make it easier for loyal members to earn AirAsia BIG Points.

The Freedom Flyer Programme is based on a membership status system determined by how often guests fly. The four-status system starts with Red status for guests who fly 13 or fewer one-way short-haul flights in the preceding 12 months, through to Gold and Platinum, and all the way up to Black for those who fly 50 or more times with AirAsia.

For every RM10 spent, Red Members can earn up to 20 BIG Points, Gold up to 40, Platinum up to 70, and Black up to 120. Long-haul and Fly-Thru flights count as two one-way short-haul flights for status calculation purposes.

“I am pleased to introduce the world’s first Freedom Flyer Programme,” says Tan Sri Tony Fernandes, AirAsia co-founder and AirAsia Group CEO. “When my partner Datuk Kamarudin and I started AirAsia, we dreamed of democratising air travel so flying would no longer be a luxury only a few could enjoy. We wanted to give everyone the freedom to fly.”
