Get WIFI when you fly with AirAsia

Yes, This on-board WiFi service is very first to Malaysia and it’s officially introduced by AirAsia today.

The inflight WiFi service is called as “roKKi chats” which enables guests to use selected IM apps while flying,currently the apps are restricted to WhatsApp, Wechat and Line. However, more apps will be supported in the future.

As what I know,the WiFi system is developed by roKKi & Tunebox based on SwiftBroadband(broadband service provided by inmarsat).Up to date,only 4 plans have equipped the WiFi system and expand to another 15 planes by year end. AirAsia intends to provide the WiFi service to all 80 of its Malaysian aircrafts by second quarter of next year and by the end of next year,all 160 aircrafts could get WiFi onboard.

You’ll be informed by flight attendants when you are on a roKKi-support flight. To get to use the service is quite simple: Continue reading Get WIFI when you fly with AirAsia

Don’t be too sad if you can’t redeem your free seats from the member-only promotion.We still have another chance to get the free seats in the upcoming promo too.Well,it ought to be a tough battle to get those seats,but it’s still worth trying.

FYI,the free seats are for travelling between 20 August 2013 to 9 February 2014.If you wanna get one,you’d better to make sure that you’re still awake after midnight.

AirAsia opens direct flights from Kuala Lumpur to Shanghai & vice versa

Days ago,Regional Head of  Commercial for AirAsia Group,Kathleen Tan implied in her Weibo saying ‘Hello Shanghai,I’m coming’ and in today’s official Weibo of AirAsia,it confirms the new route as well as the discounted price structure.

The promotion sales will start from midnight today and the lowest return tickets are only RMB951/RM467/USD153 per pax including all taxes and other charges for travelling from 19 February 2013 to 30 September 2013.

AirAsia X,the long-haul service under AirAsia Group,has flied to 12 cities in China.According to the latest talk from Tony Fernandes,the founder and group CEO of AirAsia,he will keep focusing on ASEAN coutries as they have great foundation of population as well as great potentials.China is one of the most active counties in this region and tons of opportunities are over there.Thus,AirAsia X will be looking for more destinations in China in the near future,benefiting from the boosts of the economy.

Honestly,I’ve waited for the day coming for years.Because my hometown is in Shanghai and so I have to be back there several times every year.Previously,in order to cut the cost,I always took AirAsia X flights to Hangzhou and then transit to Shanghai by other vehicles.It had to spend twice of the time and it’s really exhausting.Well,that day ends now.

Thank you AirAsia!
