KUALA LUMPUR, 3 December 2021: AirAsia ride and Trapo team
up to provide a safe, hygienic and convenient travel experience on the ground
when passengers book land transport.
AirAsia reports a significant uptick in travellers on
flights to Langkawi Island under the travel bubble scheme that was launched in
September. Guests and merchants alike in Langkawi are significantly benefiting
from the all-time high pent-up demand for air travel.
But with the resumption of flights, other concerns are
emerging as travellers plan beyond the flight to ground services. How do travellers explore the island in the
most convenient way and save money at the same time?
New player AirAsia Ride that was launched last August, is
the new ride-hailing platform that provides safe solutions to transfer from the
airport to their final destinations. AirAsia Ride is bundled into the airline’s
single super-app, so as soon as guests land at Langkawi International Airport.
Passengers can book a ride to their hotels or destinations by using AirAsia ride
on the AirAsia Super App.
AirAsia Ride makes sure that all their drivers are fully
vaccinated and also subsidises Covid-19 self-test kits for the drivers, which
will enable them to perform the test if needed. Drivers are also required to
adhere to strict SOPs, such as always having a face mask on, a MySejahtera QR
code for each vehicle, and carrying out regular sanitation to ensure cars are
always in the best condition for passengers.
In the latest move to improve safety on the ground AirAsia Ride is collaborating with Trapo, a leading local automotive accessories brand, to add new hygiene features to cars for a better passenger experience.
Airasia ride CEO Lim Chiew Shan explains: “Our
commitment is to provide guests with affordable, safe, and efficient car rides
