    AirAsia's COVID-19 Travel Tips & Requirement

    New AirAsia Flight Requirement

    In the past year, AirAsia has spent its downtime productively by revamping its processes and procedures for both its staff and customers. One of the biggest changes is to accept only fully vaccinated passengers onboard all its flights, as well as allowing only fully vaccinated staff on flights as well as airport terminals. Other important changes are as follow:

    • Only fully vaccinated travelers are allowed on AirAsia flights. Please also ensure that you have passed the vaccination maturity period of two weeks.

    • You must be classified as 'Low Risk" or "Casual Contact with No Symptoms" to be allowed on AirAsia flights.

    • Perform a COVID-19 self-test before the flight to ensure the safety of yourself and others around you.

    • It is mandatory to check in via the AirAsia super app for your flights, which can be done as early as 14 days prior to departure.

    • You are required to scan or upload your vaccination records during the in-app check-in process for real-time verification.

    • Counter check-ins are only open to guests with mobility issues or those traveling with infants under the age of 2 years. A fee will apply for other guests who did not perform a self check-in online.

    • You are encouraged to arrive at the airport as early as 4 hours before your flight to ensure you have enough time to go through all the necessary and new processes.

    • Face masks are mandatory before, during and after the flight. Masks with open valves are not permitted on AirAsia flights. Instead, opt for 3-ply masks or for extra protection, double-masking is encouraged.
