AirAsia rolls out contactless procedures at the airport

Monday 15 June 2020 12:24 CET | News

Malaysia-based airline company AirAsia has implemented contactless procedures at the airport to align with the safety measures imposed by the government.

According to New Straits Times, the government had recently allowed all public transport services, including flights and express buses, as well as e-hailing services and private vehicles, to operate at full capacity while abiding by the standard operating procedures (SOPs) under the Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO) at all time.

Therefore, AirAsia has been working with regulators, local governments, civil aviation, and health authorities, including the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO), to implement contactless procedures at the airport. AirAsia's offering includes Wave payments for AliPay and WeChat Pay at the second terminal of the Kuala Lumpur International Airport, with plans of being extended to other airports. 

Besides, contactless kiosks are available at all operating airports across Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, Indonesia, and Japan, where guests making their essential travel can print their boarding pass and baggage tag after checking-in online on airasia.com or through the mobile app. Moreover, travellers can scan their passports on the AirAsia mobile app, and store their e-boarding pass within the Apple Wallet, thus facilitating the onboarding process, New Straits Times reported.
