AirAsia Free Seats
Planning a good trip takes going the extra mile, especially since flight prices are constantly fluctuating. Don’t even get me started on the hassle of coordinating your leave with your colleagues too.
The struggle may be real, but AirAsia’s upcoming Free Seats promotion is going to help counter that. With this promotion, not only will you get to save more since you’ll barely have to spend a dime on your seat, but you can channel all that saved up moolah into planning even more trips across the whole year.
What Are Free Seats
For the unacquainted, AirAsia’s Free Seats is basically having the cost for your airplane seat waived off! Just think of how that could mean extra budget for a more upscale hotel you’ve been eyeing, or a lavish meal overseas to treat yourself.
The only thing you’ll need to take care of during this promotion is your airport and processing fees, all of which amount to approximately $50. Here’s a lowdown of how you can get started.
How to get Free Seats

The first step to get your Free Seats lies in becoming an AirAsia BIG Loyalty member, that is completely free too. It’s not that complicated to register - all you need is to get access to their portal, which you can sign-up for here.

Tips on increasing your chances for Free Seats
To get you amped up for your chance at close to $0 airfares, here are some tips to help you increase your odds of securing your seat when they’re finally released.
Tip 1: Indicate your holiday destination and travel period

The Free Seats promotion is one that you’ll want to take note of every detail to maximise your probabilities of getting it. Have a destination pre-planned in mind before logging on to the site so you won’t be wasting time comparing locations when the promo is ongoing. Be mindful of the exact time period it’ll last for and what specific flights are eligible for this deal as well.
As of now, you can fly with Free Seats to over 17 direct destinations across Southeast Asia including Bandung, Langkawi, Phuket and many more. You can even capitalise on these locations as a transit to over 130 destinations worldwide.
Tip 2: Prepare a couple of backup locations
It’s always good to have 2 to 3 other destinations that you’ll like to visit at the back of your mind. This way, even if the Free Seats to your most preferred location is completely occupied, you can still have a chance to have a well-deserved getaway elsewhere.
Tip 3: Book your seat at an irregular hour
We all understand the pain of jostling amidst the competition of a crowd, online and offline. The best way to avoid human traffic is to standby at your computer 2-3 hours before the time of the promo launch, increasing your chances of getting a seat faster than everyone else. Fastest fingers first!
Where Free Seats will bring you to
We’re always looking forward to a break from our daily routines, but it can be a hassle to travel to far-flung countries when you’re pressed for time.
That being said, AirAsia has flights to a long list of destinations within Southeast Asia, including places like Yogyakarta, Langkawi, and Bangkok, so you can always have your travel fix at pocket-friendly prices and a new view to wake up to.
