You can redeem the credits for all Air Asia flights within these countries, using 1 or 3 credits depending on the length of the route. You are not allowed to fly a route twice, there and back, of course.

The validity of the ticket begins with the first flight. You have to become a member of the frequent flyer program BIG Shot to buy the pass and to redeem it later.

It is important to note that theRedeem at least 14 dayse before the desired flight must be done and that only the flight price is covered with the credits.Airport Tax & Fees will be billed separately.

As with the European low-cost airlines, you also have to pay extra for checked baggage, food on board or seat reservations.

Furthermore, it can happen that there are no more availabilities on some flights, especially around weekends or holidays. So you should allow for some reserve in your planning for such cases.
