AirAsia is responding to passenger demand for premium services with the launch of the new “AirAsia Red Carpet” option.
The service offers travellers an exclusive check-in counter, pre-flight food and beverages in a special lounge and priority boarding and baggage claim, with prices starting at Bt800 for domestic flights and Bt1,000 for international and Fly Thru flights.
Santisuk Klongchaiya, director of Commercial for Thai AirAsia, notes that AirAsia’s customer base has expanded steadily to encompass a range of lifestyles that include travellers who enjoy its low fares but also want the convenience and exclusivity of more premium services, hence the creation of “AirAsia Red Carpet”.
Customers who choose this option will be treated to an exclusive check-in counter that bypasses any long lines, up to two-and-a half-hours access to a relaxing lounge complete with food and beverage as well as priority boarding and baggage claim. The service can be selected through the Manage My Booking feature on AirAsia website.
AirAsia Red Carpet is available for both AirAsia and AirAsia X passengers on all flights from Don Mueang Airport (domestic and international) with domestic passengers to be given access to The Coral Executive Lounge and international passengers to the King Power Lounge along with a King Power cash voucher worth Bt400 for shopping at King Power Duty Free for journeys through December 31.
The service is also available at Phuket Airport, Chiang Mai Airport (international flights only) and Udon Thani Airport (domestic flights only).
