airasia MOVE inks partnership with UnionPay International for new customer rewards

share on

Travel booking platform airasia MOVE (formerly known as airasia Superapp) has partnered international payment brand UnionPay to offer better rewards and benefits for its customers.

Through the partnership, airasia MOVE members will enjoy a Platinum membership status when they spend RM300 or more with their UnionPay cards on flights, hotels or flight and hotel bundles called SNAP.

With the slogan “UnionPay like a pro, fly like a boss,” members will also have access to free airport transfers on airasia rides to and from any airport across the country in Malaysia and in the city of Bangkok, Thailand and Bali, Indonesia.

“We believe that this will add value to both UnionPay cardholders and our members alike, which will bring us closer to our vision of making airasia rewards a loyalty programme platform with the best value and widest array of offerings,” said Nicole Tan, head of airasia rewards.

Platinum member customers will get to enjoy seven times the airasia points earned for all transactions on airasia MOVE, priority access for flight check-ins and up to 15% hotel discounts to name a few. The deal will run until 30 November 2024.

The partnership with UnionPay also comes in the wake of airasia MOVE’s parent company, AirAsia Aviation Group’s restructuring.

As part of the restructuring, Riad Asmat has relinquished his position as the CEO of AirAsia Malaysia and has been appointed to the company’s board of advisors effective 31 December 2023. Asmat will also provide consultancy work for Capital A Aviation Services.

“I am proud to have been given the opportunity to work with AirAsia and the amazing Allstars. This was not an easy decision considering how each and every one truly meant to me as my airline family throughout this very meaningful journey in my life,” said Asmat.

Asmat held the role of AirAsia Malaysia’s CEO from January 2018 and was responsible for the management of the company’s Malaysia-based operations. AirAsia will be announcing additional updates on its company and personnel restructuring in due course, according to a statement from the company.
