Sepang, 15th November 2019 – AirAsia has partnered with leading travel technology company Kiwi.com and expanded its online offerings to include flights from other airlines, transforming airasia.com into Asia Pacific’s leading travel and lifestyle platform.
Over 50 million airasia.com users may now book travel on over 100 airlines to destinations currently not served by AirAsia, including Europe, Australia, New Zealand, the Middle East and the Americas.
airasia.com CEO Tony Fernandes said, “Today is an unbelievable day. When we started AirAsia as a low-cost airline back in 2001, I never thought one day we would be selling our competitors. But if there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s never say never. Never say never and believe the unbelievable. Today, with the help of Kiwi.com, we are reinventing ourselves as more than just an airline, bringing to life our vision for airasia.com to be the region’s one-stop travel shop.”
Rajiv Kumar, airasia.com Head of Airline Distribution, added that they were exploring opportunities to partner directly with airlines and companies who compliment their existing network and travel services beyond Asia Pacific. Oliver Dlouhý, Kiwi.com CEO, expressed his pride that Kiwi.com was chosen to open AirAsia’s travel platform to the rest of the world.
