There are several ways to book your flight with AirAsia.
*Note: Online promotional fares are not available for telephone and over-the-counter booking.
Passengers may check in on-line using a computer or mobile phone. Web check-in may be done immediately after booking confirmation until as late as 60 minutes before departure time for AirAsia flights (AK, FD, QZ). Passengers on AirAsiaX flights (D7) may check-in on-line until as late as or four hours before departure time.
On-line check-in passengers are required to print the boarding pass. Passengers who do not have a printer may choose SMS (smart phones only) to get a 2D barcode. Scan this barcode at the check-in kiosk to print the boarding pass.
All paying passengers are allowed only one piece of hand baggage onboard provided that it does not exceed the dimensions of 56cm x 36cm x 23cm and does not weigh more than 7kg. In addition to that, passengers may also carry along a regular-size laptop bag, and for women a regular-size handbag.
AirAsia's advertised fares do not include checked-in baggage allowance. This can be purchased as add-on when booking your ticket, and it comes in the sizes of 15kg, 20kg, 25kg and 30kg. If you're not sure about what size you want, simply proceed with booking your ticket (to grab the best promo fare) with the lowest allowance (15kg), or even without any baggage allowance. You can always change or add-on later (only applicable to online bookings). Any changes must be made up to 48 hours before flight time. As in any airlines, any excess weight will be charged by the kilogram.
If you did not add on baggage allowance when booking your ticket, you may still do so at the check-in counter at the 'standard rate', which is higher than online price. Furthermore, at the counter, only the 15kg baggage allowance is available for purchase. If your baggage is overweight, you will be charged by the kilogram. So plan carefully to avoid unnecessary extra charges.
Note that AirAsia is a budget airline, and will charge you for many things which regular airlines don't. These things include meals, drinks, check-in luggage, seat selection (instead of random assignment), etc.
There are also the standard fees which all airlines charge such as the airport fee, which differ between destinations.
See the AirAsia fee schedule for a list of taxes, fees and charges based on flight origin and destination.
For all additional details or clarifications, consult the terms and conditions set out by AirAsia.
