AirAsia has added the e-wallet feature to its Super App which will enable users to reload and make payments for all the products and services on the app.
Called AirAsia pocket, users will be able to earn points upon activation and enjoy an extra 10% off all AirAsia flight bookings plus 10x points with every food order on weekends.
The service is currently available to all Super App users in Malaysia in the Ringgit Malaysia currency. There are two types of accounts available – the Lite and Pro. The Lite account is for everyday use with a wallet size limit of RM500, while the Pro account is designed for higher value transactions with a wallet size of up to RM4,999.
The airasia pocket’s features are developed by Fass Payment Solutions Sdn Bhd (Fasspay), a leading white-label e-wallet player and an approved e-money provider by Bank Negara Malaysia.
Mohamad Hafidz Mohd Fadzil, Super App’s Chief Fintech Officer, said, “As fintech and neobanks continue to reshape the financial landscape in Malaysia and across ASEAN, Super App is continuing to be an industry disruptor and expand its fintech services by launching airasia pocket, which enables our app users to make payment for all products and services faster within the Super App ecosystem. This includes payments for flights and hotel bookings, as well as on food, grocer, xpress, or when booking a ride.”
Amanda Woo, CEO of airasia Super App, said, “This is the final step in closing the loop for the whole ecosystem, which will draw out the true superpower of the Super App.
Currently, top-ups for AirAsia pocket are available via Online Banking (FPX), with more options to be added in the future.
