AirAsia Launches Asean Pass: Up To 10 Flights For US$160

You’ve probably already spent a fair amount of your travel fund over Tết, but AirAsia’s new Asean Pass may have you digging a bit deeper into your pockets.

The pass gives travelers credits to use on 140 routes across 10 ASEAN countries - Malaysia, Brunei, Singapore, Indonesia, Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia and the Philippines.

Destinations are broken into two credit-based categories, 1 credit and 3 credits. One has the option of buying a 10-credit (US$160) or a 20-credit ($290) version of the pass that can be used within a 30-day or 60-day window, respectively.

An itinerary using the credits might look something like this:

It looks like the Asean Pass is a replacement for the highly anticipated rollout of a similar scheme that was said to include unlimited flights within and between the aforementioned countries. It seemed almost too good to be true at the time and it appears that the airline agreed and decided to change the terms of the deal.

Though it still seems to be a pretty solid value nonetheless, the cost of the Asean Pass does not include airport taxes which will likely drive up the overall costs.
