Swift credit redemption

29 Jun 2020 / 15:01 H.

AirAsia guests are now able to secure their credit with the airline easier and faster than before, with the credit now redeemed on the same day that the request is made.

The latest move is in line with the company’s value to be guest-obsessed and aims to reduce the stress and uncertainty of current times, by providing its guests with a quick, hassle-free resolution.

Guests whose flights have been cancelled by AirAsia from Mar 23 to Aug 31 can retain the value of their bookings into Credit Accounts on their AirAsia BIG Member account, on the same day of their request.

Credit accounts can be used within two years or 730 calendar days from the issuance date, while the travel date of the new booking can be any time beyond that period, as long as flights are available for booking on or on the mobile app.

AirAsia’s Virtual Allstar, AVA will be able to assist guests with their Credit Account submission. All travellers need to do is provide their name, email address and their booking number.

AVA will then check to ensure the BIG Member ID provided matches the name and records of the person who has registered the BIG Member account before processing the Credit to their account.

“We know it’s been a frustrating time for our guests, and our team has been working hard to add faster, simpler ways to access our recovery options,” said AirAsia Chief Customer Happiness Officer Adam Geneave.

“We are pleased to make Credit Accounts more easily accessible for our valued guests, many of whom have chosen them over refunds, in anticipation of flying with us again in the future. We are grateful for their cooperation, which will not only help us come out of this challenging time stronger but also shows that we are truly all in this together.”

Guests who have already submitted their Credit Account request will receive an email from AirAsia, guiding them through on how to submit for the same-day credit account request. They are also kindly reminded that a BIG Membership Account is required to process Credit Account requests, and is subject to booking validation.
