Why fly with AirAsia

AirAsia check in

You can check in for all AirAsia flights online or using the AirAsia mobile app from 14 days to 1 hour before your scheduled departure. Web check-in is available for individuals or groups of up to 50 passengers. You can print your boarding pass or save a barcode to your phone that allows you to print the boarding pass at the airport.

You can also check in at airport counters or using self check-in kiosks where available. Passengers at Kuala Lumpur International's klia2 terminal are required to use the self check-in facilities, but can head to the service counters if they're not able to use the machines.

AirAsia baggage allowance and fees

All passengers can take on board 1 item of cabin baggage (up to 56cm x 36cm x 23cm) and 1 acceptable personal item (40cm x 30cm x 10cm). The combined weight of these items should not exceed 7kg.

Value Pack, Premium Flex and Premium Flatbed fares include a checked baggage allowance. All passengers can pre-book checked baggage online in increments starting from 15kg (domestic flights) or 20kg (international) up to 40kg.

If you don't pre-book your check-in baggage, this will be charged at the airport at local rates on a per-kilogram basis, which costs more.

AirAsia seat selection

Seat selection is included free on Value Pack, Premium Flex and Premium Flatbed fares. Other passengers can pay to choose a preferred seat when booking their flights, managing their booking online or checking in. The fee depends on the type of seat.

Seat types on Airbus A320 flights include Standard Seats and Hot Seats. Hot Seats are located at the front of the plane and in emergency exit rows, featuring extra leg room and priority boarding.

The Airbus A330 adds Premium Flatbed seats and Quiet Zone seats for passengers who want extra peace and quiet.
