On Monday, December 5, 2022, AirAsia launched the world’s first flight subscription product with lifestyle perks. And for the first time, these flight subscription passes are available worldwide.
History Of AirAsia’s Unlimited Flight Pass
Since the 2020s, AirAsia has been offering a one-year subscription-based all-you-can-fly Unlimited pass to attract customers just before the COVID-19 pandemic. However, only residents in Malaysia were able to take advantage of this lucrative offer.
As time pass by and travel demand was slowly restored, AirAsia Groups in different South East Asian countries started to launch similar promotions to its own nationals and residents. And with some success with this strategy, the airline finally launched the first worldwide unlimited flight pass this month.
In the figures, AirAsia mentioned that over 100,000 SUPER+ subscribers have redeemed over 500,000 flight seats across ASEAN, with the highest redemption being 100 flight seats within the 12-month period.
AirAsia Super+ Go Unlimited Pass
Starting from December 5, 2022, through December 11, 2022, SUPER+ by the AirAsia Super App is now made available for purchase worldwide, with an enhanced version that will enable subscribers to fly further and enjoy more perks across the whole AirAsia network.
There will be two different subscription plans under the new SUPER+ plan:
- SUPER+ Lite
- SUPER+ Premium
Both plans will offer unlimited flights to over 130 destinations worldwide but the “Lite” plan will only be available to AirAsia’s South East Asian routes.
So let’s go over the details of the new plans. As you can see below, the SUPER+ Lite does not offer free seats to Japan, Korea, Australia, China and India while the Premium version has all these cities included. Other than that, I do not see much difference except the difference in earning AirAsia points.
Commenting on the new SUPER+, Tony Fernandes, CEO of Capital A said:
“This is what we have been preparing for – the return of travel, and we are excited about the reopening of markets like Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong and more to come in the near future. The SUPER+ subscription captures the beauty of our airasia Super App platform ecosystem, which brings together all of our airlines and travel products and services like hotels, along with our e-commerce offerings such as airasia ride, which is also included as a SUPER+ benefit. This is another product that highlights our DNA which is to create value for our customers, and we will continue to champion this across all new products and services that we will introduce in the future.”

AirAsia launched an unlimited flight pass plan called SUPER+. This annual subscription flight plan will allow you to get a seat on all of AirAsia’s destinations. The airline only offers 200,000 SUPER+ new subscriptions through December 11, 2022, so if you have plans to travel a lot with AirAsia, it’s your opportunity to get one of these Go unlimited passes.
In a similar move, the US low-cost carrier, Frontier Airlines also offered GoWild! Unlimited All-You-Can-Fly Pass last month.
