The Malaysian airline Air Asia is based in Kuala Lumpur. Air Asia is Asia's largest low cost airline. Air Asia wants to allow low affordable prices so everyone can fly. The low cost concept is based on a no-frills system that allows the passenger to purchase certain services, such as meals on board, luggage and seat choice, for an additional fee in addition to the standard services included in the price. The home base of the state-owned airline, which was founded in 1993, is the Kuala Lumpur International Airport. Key hubs are Kota Kinabalu International Airport and Senai International Airport in Johor Bahru. Air Asia owns a Thai and an Indonesian subsidiary. A total of 20 countries, both national and international destinations are served. In addition to airports in East and Southeast Asia, such as the major hubs Jakarta and Bangkok, these include smaller airports such as Macao and Xiamen, as well as European destinations Paris-Orly and London-Stansted.
👜 Baggage regulations at AirAsia
Air Asia regularly offers reasonably priced flights to Bangkok, Singapore or even Hong Kong, so it's worth taking a look at what this airline offers. Some airlines often save on low-cost service, for example, when it comes to carrying luggage. Air Asia is considered a very generous provider when it comes to luggage. Passengers are allowed to carry up to 32 kilograms of weight, whereby the dimensions 119 x 119 x 81 cm are mandatory, but are also very generous. However, before flying, passengers should explore carefully for possible restrictions on certain connections, for example, within Japan or China. In contrast, cabin luggage is subject to international standards, with travelers being allowed to carry a hand luggage with a maximum of 56 x 36 x 23 cm and optionally another piece of luggage the size of a notebook or handbag. Air Asia's weight of seven kilograms is a bit below standard, as many airlines allow eight kilograms or even heavier hand luggage at no extra charge.
