AirAsia launches MyCorporate, eyes business travellers

AirAsia has launched MyCorporate, a suite of products exclusively made with its business traveller in mind.

The budget airline said companies that sign up to MyCorporate will have access to a convenient, easy-to-use online booking system and comprehensive reporting to keep track of corporate travelling expenses.

MyCorporate consists of three bundle options, depending on the requirements of the traveller and the company budget - Fare Only, Corporate Lite and Corporate Full Flex.

Its Fare Only product is an air fare only, with all add-ons available for a fee. The Corporate Lite bundle includes air fare, a complimentary meal, standard seat assignment and dedicated check-in counter. Guests can also change their flight once up to 24 hours before departure with no flight change fee.

Meanwhile, its Corporate Full Flex bundle includes air fare, a complimentary meal, Hot Seat assignment, 20kg baggage allowance, dedicated check-in counter, XPress immigration, Xpress Baggage, Premium Red Lounge access, priority boarding, travel insurance and full flexibility with unlimited flight changes up to two hours before departure with no flight change fee. Guests will also be able to enjoy GoShow, an exclusive product allowing them to standby on an earlier flight on the same day, to the same destination, with no added fees or fare charges.

AirAsia's group CEO, Tan Sri Tony Fernandes, said that the airline has seen a rise in the number of those travelling for business on AirAsia within its extensive network and frequency across the group.

"With the launch of MyCorporate, we believe we have a programme that serves the needs of both travellers and companies to further capture our share of this important segment,” he added.

AirAsia's group corporate sales head, Barry Klipp, said the launch of MyCorporate represents the "next evolution for AirAsia corporate products."

"With MyCorporate, we are better able to offer the right product to our corporate client’s needs and budgets. Whether they require just a seat with no add-ons, a Lite product with basic benefits or if they wish to take advantage of our fully loaded product designed to make business travel more convenient and flexible, including our latest offering GoShow,” Klipp added.
