Group CEO of AirAsia Aviation Limited Bo Lingam says, “As Malaysia and Thailand open their international borders, AirAsia is prepared to meet the rise in the pent-up travel demand especially towards the end of the year as a peak travel period. 

“Travelling today comes with a new set of protocols and we want to reassure our guests that we are ready to welcome them with the right travel protection products provided by Tune Protect while observing strict and disciplined protocols to ensure the safety of our passengers in-flight and beyond so that they can have total peace of mind.”

Premiums start from as low as RM170 per guest per trip.

For travellers flying with AirAsia into Thailand, the Covid Travel Pass provides medical expenses due to accidents and sickness due to COVID-19 of up to THB1.8 million. 

The Covid Travel Pass is available via the AirAsia Super App and will soon be made available to other customers via Tune Protect’s website.
