SEPANG, 9 May 2014
In celebrating AirAsia’s start of operations at klia2, the airline’s management organized a Twitter campaign called #noweveryonecanfly.
The campaign was organized by AirAsia Berhad CEO Aireen Omar (twitter handle: @aireenomar) and AirAsia X CEO Azran Osman-Rani (@azranosmanrani), requesting the public to nominate their friends or family members who have never experienced flight and provide the best reason why they deserve to fly with AirAsia or AirAsia X from the new klia2.
In a short span of time after the campaign was initiated, 300 nomination tweets were received and total of eight outstanding tweets were selected as winners.
The winners were presented with their prizes in a Prize Giving Ceremony at AirAsia’s Interim Office at Level 2 of Gateway klia2 by Aireen Omar and Azran Osman-Rani, both responsible for selecting the winning tweets.
Winners received a pair of return flights to AirAsia or AirAsia X destinations with paid fuel surcharge and airport tax, plus a generous 20kg baggage allowance. They were also presented with AirAsia merchandises, BIG Shot membership with 500 points, Tune Hotel accommodation (domestic destinations in Malaysia) and an exclusive certificate to commemorate the memorable occasion.
One of the entrants, using the Twitter handle ‘Zarul22’, sent in the following winning tweet to nominate his uncle, a disabled person: #noweveryonecanfly Someone close to me. He can only sit for the rest of his life. Opportunity to feel different perspective in his life.
AirAsia is proud to fulfil his dreams and the promise of ‘Now Everyone Can Fly’.
AirAsia officially started its operations in klia2 today, with flight AK 122 from Kuala Lumpur to Guangzhou having the honour of becoming the first flight out of the new terminal, scheduled time of departure at 5.35am.
AirAsia bid goodbye to the Low Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT) yesterday where it was based for the last 8 years, with an emotional sending off of its final flight, Kuala Lumpur to Kolkata, from the old terminal at 11pm. AirAsia X flight to Jeddah was the final flight of the day for the long-haul airline, with flight D7 170 lifting its landing gears for the last time from the LCCT at approximately 2.35am.
Beginning 9 May 2014, 3,550 AirAsia operations staff and 70 aircraft will be based in klia2. The airline has been operating out of the LCCT for the past eight years, since 2006.
