The date for Malaysia’s 14th General Elections was just announced, and now registered voters know that they have to be ready to be at their respective stations on May 9, 2018.

Option 2, Credit Account: Retain the fare value in your AirAsia BIG Loyalty account for future travel with AirAsia, to be redeemed within 90 calendar days from the date of credit issue.
