Following the nationwide vaccination programme roll out , AirAsia is calling on all members of society to participate and support their respective Governments towards ending the pandemic.
AirAsia’s Group Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Tony Fernandes said the vaccine is the answer to revive and boost global tourism and local economies all over the world.
With the vaccines being rolled out across the globe, better education and testing, globally recognised digital health passports, veil medicines, leisure travel bubbles and contactless procedures for travel are all coming together to support an international air travel reset in the very near future.
Tony commented that AirAsia is well prepared and eager to operate again with many new innovations and digital contactless procedures to ensure the highest standards of guest hygiene and safety.
“In Malaysia, our own Prime Minister was the first to get his jab, and when my turn comes I will surely be taking it. So, I urge everyone to do the right thing and get the jab so we can all fly high again,” Fernandes said.
“Now is the time for us to band together and show how Malaysia is united and assist the government to get the vaccines out to the population. I urge everyone to dispel any misinformation around the vaccines and trust the scientists and the experts,” he added.
AirAsia is looking forward to playing an active role in the vaccination campaign.
“Through our logistics arm Teleport, we are willing to help wherever we can, including transporting vaccines from China and Russia when they’re available, and distributing them domestically in Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines, India and other countries,” Fernandes concluded.
