AirAsia is the go-to airline for many people who frequently travel around Asia, particularly in Southeast Asia, East Asia, and South Asia. They are famous for offering very cheap airfares.
Knowing that they operate one of the largest flight networks in the region, this airline should definitely be one of the first places you should check for seat sales.
Book cheap AirAsia flights during promotions
The cheapest AirAsia flights can be booked during a “red hot sale”, which may also be called as “free seats promo” or “zero fares.”

For more tips, see the AirAsia promo & booking guide.
Read conditions carefully
Promo fares are only available under conditions posted on the announcement. Be mindful of these important details:
You should book your flights before the end of the selling period. Promo fares are also only available for dates on or within the travel period. If your travel plans do not match the travel period posted or if the promo had already expired, you may watch out for the next promo announcement by visiting the airline’s website again on a later date.
Check availability and book online
When you’ve found a promo fare that you would like to book, the best way to check if they are available is to do a flight search online, directly on AirAsia’s website. The process of booking promo flights should be the same as booking regular flights. Promo codes are usually not necessary. Make sure you read special conditions on the announcement to confirm this.
You can check the availability of promo fares online yourself by using the flight search box on the homepage. Enter your travel details and click “Search” to view the flight results. Prices listed on the results page are the cheapest prices at this moment, for your chosen dates and flight route. Promo fares will be labeled with the “Promo” text under the airfare price, if available. Then, select the flights that you want to book and follow the on-screen instructions to purchase your ticket.
Promo fares are often only available by booking directly with the airline
The biggest reason that you should go online to book and check fares is that most promo fares by AirAsia are only available on their official website or booking app. Third-party travel agencies, even if they are affiliated with AirAsia, might not have access to the cheapest fares offered by the airline. These agencies would likely tell you that they cannot find the discounted fares in their system, and offer regular fares instead.
Promos are offered on a limited basis
Before calling them “FAKE,” you should know that limited promo seats are allocated for any given flight route. If all promo seats are sold out on your chosen flight, you will only be able to view and book the next lowest regular fare. Get ahead of other bookers by booking your flights as soon as possible. The airline also limits promo seats on certain dates and rarely offer them on “black-out dates,” which may include peak periods such as holidays, festival dates, and other busy dates for air travelers.
In case you cannot find the promo prices advertised on the announcement, you may follow these tips to confirm whether a promo is fake or not:
Make sure the promo has not yet expired.
Confirm that your chosen travel dates match the travel period posted on the announcement.
Check prices on other dates, perhaps days to months before or after your intended travel.
Check prices on other flight routes and destinations mentioned on the promo announcement.
All-in fares vs base fares
AirAsia usually advertises “all-in” fares on their sale announcement. The all-in fare is the lowest fare that may be booked and already includes the base fare, airport fees, and government taxes. It does not include optional add-ons like check-in baggage, meals, travel insurance, seat selection and may not include fees and taxes charged on departure from certain airports.
Also, prices listed are usually for one-way flights and may be available as “vice-versa,” sold at the same base fare. The all-in fare on the return flight may be different, depending on taxes and fees charged at the departure airport.
Promos may be booked without a credit card
In addition to credit cards, AirAsia also accepts payments through ATM cards and offline over-the-counter payment centers.
Where to find promo codes & coupons?
Promo or coupon codes are not needed for most seat sales by AirAsia. In case they are, these codes are posted along with the announcement details.
