The communities of Sabah and Sarawak are set to benefit from attractive promotional 20% discount to all AirAsia and AirAsia X destinations at the AirAsia Travel Fair (AATF) 2016 which will be in four locations throughout East Malaysia from April to May 2016.

The annual travel fair by AirAsia, which is in its third year was launched officially in Kuching with Yang Berbahagia Datu Ik Pahon Joyik, Permanent Secretary Ministry of Tourism Sarawak as the Guest of Honour; along with the presence of Yang Berbahagia Datuk Seri Mirza Mohammad Taiyab, Director General of Tourism Malaysia; Mr Philip Yong, President of Sarawak Tourism Federation and Aireen Omar, CEO of AirAsia Berhad.

Aireen Omar, CEO of AirAsia Berhad said, “We started the first AirAsia Travel Fair in 2014 as a way to effectively engage with our guests by offering them on-the-spot discounts and special promotions and we had many requests for it to be extended to Sarawak and Sabah. Last year, we brought the travel fair to Kuching and Kota Kinabalu and the results were very encouraging. So in 2016, we want to enable Sarawakians and Sabahans from other parts to have access to our travel fair promotions as well. Each location will have its own special promotion for both AirAsia and AirAsia X flights apart from the 20% discount, so lookout for the AirAsia Travel Fair 2016 coming to a city near you in Sarawak and Sabah.”
