One of our favourite feature is their attempt in keeping their customers informed – nutritionally. Nutritional value for most meals are written on the package. This helps the customers to be aware of their nutrition consumption, especially those who are being mindful of their calorie consumption.

There is nothing else in the meal, just plain white rice and beef in black sauce. If you are not that into vegetables and would like to have just rice and meat, this is definitely a must-try.

Roast Chicken With Cream Sauce – AirAsia In-flight Meal

AirAsia in-flight meals can be something to be looked forward to whenever you travel with the budget airline. It “empowers” you to choose your own meal (and of course you have to pay for it).

This is the view that you probably would want to see before you order the food. The portion is quite generous for an in-flight food. However, it is only sufficient if you are not looking forward to have a heavy meal due to the absence of rice in the set.

Answer: If you look for the information on AirAsia wheelchair charge on search engines, most probably you will end up on this page. However, there is no external link specified in the page.

On September 29th 2017, AirAsia has published an article about wheelchair charges on the Support section of its website. The answer can be a bit complex and different

Step 2: Then, read another article about additional charges for passengers in wheelchairs.

For example, you can find the wheelchair charge for flights between Kota Bharu (KBR) to Kuala Lumpur (KUL) will cost you RM 63.60 if you pre-book the service or RM 127.20 if you book it at the counter. So, be smart and book early to lighten up the load on your wallet.

Usage of aerobridge in Miri Airport

To my understanding, whenever possible, AirAsia will not use aerobridge for its flights. Nevertheless, the airline is forced to use aerobridge for its operation at KLIA2 terminal in Kuala Lumpur.

Miri Airport (MYY)

During my recent trip to Miri, I discovered that AirAsia uses aerobridge for both inbound and outbound flights. Probably because of a construction job taking place nearby.

AirAsia – First Airline to Use New Approach Technology

AirAsia will be the first airline in Malaysia to use Required Navigation Performance Authori- sation Required Approach (RNP-AR APCH) technology, as reported by an article in The Star (Malaysia).

The said technology is the advanced form of performance-based navigation (PBN) technology, enabling airlines to shorten the flight distance, reduce amount of fuel used and also noise pollution, especially near airports.

AirAsia has been known for its aggressive cost-cutting measures since its days of inception. The news article also reported that AirAsia hopes that it can save up to RM 1 million a year from the technology.

“By achieving significant mile savings, we are able to save on fuel costs and this could be translated to more low fares for our guests,” – Aireen Omar, AirAsia Bhd Chief Executive Officer (CEO)

LANDASAN: The initiative to embark on a new technology is a good move, especially when it involves cost savings. It’s time to other airlines, especially the ailing ones, to follow suit right?
