AirAsia expands rewards scheme
Carrier partners DBS, StarHub to offer more attractive mileage benefits
Budget travellers in Singapore can now chalk up miles more easily to redeem free flights on Malaysian low-cost carrier AirAsia.
The group is partnering corporate giants DBS Bank and StarHub for passengers to earn points to use in its customer rewards programme here.
The scheme is open to anyone who flies the airline, 4.5 million DBS card customers and millions more who subscribe to StarHub's mobile and other services.
For example, a Singapore-Kuala Lumpur ticket, excluding taxes and surcharges, is worth about 2,000 points or $750 spent on StarHub. This works out to less than 40 cents per point.
