To celebrate this new route, AirAsia is offering special all-in members fare from as low as RM79 (all-in-fares are for AirAsia BIG member only) from Kuala Lumpur.
It could be booked on airasia.com or the AirAsia mobile app from today until Aug 25, 2019, for travel between Oct 2, 2019, and March 28, 2020, the airline said in a statement today.
“BIG members will enjoy zero processing fees when making payment using BigPay,” it said.
AirAsia regional commercial head Amanda Woo said the new route is also a testament to the airline’s commitment to support the Indonesian government in its efforts to develop 10 new priority tourism destinations.
