Your health and safety is always our top priority. To ensure that the highest standards of safety and hygiene are maintained at all times, here are some of the safety measures AirAsia is taking on the ground and in the air:

  • Wear a face mask at all times

    All guests are required to bring and wear their own facemasks (covering mouth and nose) before, during and after the flight, including during check in and bag collection. Guests without a mask will be denied boarding. Only 3-ply cloth face masks or medical masks are allowed.

  • Temperature screening

    Temperature screening will take place at different checkpoints, including boarding gates. Cabin crew will also go through temperature checks after every shift.

  • Social distancing

    Social distancing will be observed with floor markers at queuing areas, including check-in counters & kiosks. And another safety precaution will be alternate check-in counters to ensure sufficient distance, and we are also working to have contactless check-in processes as well.

  • Web or mobile check-in and early arrival at the airport

    Web or mobile check-in to reduce surface and physical contact in check-in and boarding processes. In addition, please arrive early at the airport - preferably 3 hours before departure - to allow for enough time for all the necessary processes to take place. Check-in kiosks and manual check in counters are still available.

  • Cabin baggage policy
    We have updated our cabin baggage policy. Effective 7 July 2020, guests are allowed two (2) pieces of cabin baggage not exceeding a total of 7kg in weight.
    Guests will be able to carry one (1) cabin bag not exceeding the dimensions of 56cm (H) x 36cm (W) x 23cm (D) or maximum linear of 115cm and that fits in the overhead storage compartment in the aircraft cabin, AND one (1) laptop bag or one (1) small bag not exceeding the dimensions of 40cm (H) x 30cm (W) x 23cm (D) or maximum linear of 80cm and that fits under the seat in front of you. More details are available here.
    Luggage with more than the permitted cabin baggage limits must be checked in.

  • Pre-book your hot meals online

    Inflight hot meals are not available for purchase onboard. You can pre-book your meals by logging into My Bookings at least 24 hours before your flight departure time. Guests are not allowed to eat or drink on flights with duration of 2 hours or below except for medication purposes.

  • Aircraft cleaning

    All of our aircraft go through regular disinfection procedures, which have been ramped up and enhanced in light of what we're facing right now.

    The cleaning, sanitising and disinfecting products that we use to clean our aircraft are all approved by the Public Health Authority as well as the aircraft manufacturer, which is Airbus in our case. All of our aircraft use HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Arresters) aircraft filtration system which filters 99.9% of dust particles and airborne contaminants such as viruses and bacteria.
