Starting 22 December 2011, AirAsia is abolishing the RM10 counter check-in fees for all international flights. This is part of the continuous effort to reduce the cost of travelling for all of the AirAsia’s guests in-lieu of the recent passenger service charge hike.
For guests who have pre-paid their counter check-in fees for their international flights from 21 September up to 21 December 2011 may opt for a refund in the form of credit shell through the customer care e-form.
Domestic counter check-in fees will remain the same.
