The promotion was launched by Malaysian Tourism and Culture Minister, Dato' Seri Mohamed Nazri bin Abdul Aziz and AirAsia Berhad Commercial Head, Spencer Lee at the Asean Tourism Forum (ATF) in Chiang Mai, Thailand.


Discover the best of Malaysia, including striking skyscrapers and world-class shopping in Kuala Lumpur, lush nature in Sarawak and Langkawi, some of the world's best street food in Penang, and breathtaking islands in Sabah, Johor and Terengganu, with low fares when you book from now to 28 January 2018 on airasia.com or the AirAsia mobile app for travel between 1 August - 22 November 2018.


"We are excited to kick start Visit Malaysia Year 2020 with this promo, just as we are honoured to be the airline partner for Tourism Malaysia. Last year, we flew over 9 million guests to Malaysia and we hope to bring even more this year. It's never too early to encourage visitors from around the region and beyond to visit our beautiful country and we look forward to working even more closely with Tourism Malaysia to offer better connectivity into and within Malaysia leading up to Visit Malaysia Year 2020." - Spencer Lee, AirAsia Berhad Commercial Head
