Document You can now self-service your recovery options with our Flight Interruption System

Due to commercial reasons we may have the occassional changes to flight schedules and frequencies. If your flights have been affected and if we are activating our Flight Interruption System for that, you will receive an email from our team with a link to the system where you can self-service the options communicated to you from our team.

Please see below for a list of FAQ's on our Flight Interruption System:

1. What is AirAsia’s Flight Interruption System?

We are pleased to launch an application that will allow you to process your flight reduction/cancellation refunds, credit shells and changes with no penalty imposed as a result of changes to schedule by AirAsia.

2. When will I know about interruptions to my flight?

An email will be sent to your registered member email account with a link to the Flight Interruption System.

You should also receive an SMS notification of the flight cancellation, so it is important that you keep your email and phone details up to date in your AirAsia member profile.

3. How do I know what my options are and how do I proceed?

The three options available in FIS are Credit Shell, Refund and Flight Re-accommodation. You will need to confirm which options exactly are applicable to your situation - via the email from our team or the sms. Click on the link given in the email to allow you to access to the System. Take note that the link will no longer valid upon clicking the “Done” button.

If you are moving your flight to an earlier or later date, it may need to meet certain time frames, depending on what you have been advised. E.g. it may need to fall within 14 days before or after your original booking date.

Alternatively, it means that our other flights are full. Do try other combinations of dates.
