Only fully vaccinated passengers would be allowed to fly with Malaysia’s AirAsia Group


As it prepares to restart domestic and eventually international airline services, AirAsia Group’s Malaysian unit stated on Wednesday that it would only admit fully vaccinated adult passengers on future flights (Oct 6). “Effective immediately, AirAsia Malaysia has made it necessary for only fully vaccinated adult visitors to board our flights,” the airline said in a statement, adding that individuals under the age of 18 who have not yet been properly vaccinated must be accompanied by inoculated family members. The Covid-19 mitigation strategy for the low-cost carrier is one of the most stringent in the business.
Last month, Qantas stated that all international flight passengers must be fully vaccinated, and Air New Zealand imposed the same rule for international flight passengers earlier this week.
According to the airline, AirAsia also requires passengers to check-in through its app to drastically decrease physical interaction in the airport clearance and boarding procedure. Its workers have been fully vaccinated since August.
