1Malaysia Integration Programme – Free AirAsia ticket
1Malaysia Integration Programme will provide free air ticket offer by AirAsia for routes between Sabah, Sarawak and the peninsula for a specific period. In conjunction with the 1Malaysia Integration Programme, the Prime Minister has launched a special 1Malaysia livery on AirAsia Airbus A320 aircraft.
Najib said the initiative taken by Air Asia based on the 1Malaysia concept mooted by him would certainly be able to bring Sabah and Sarawak closer to the peninsula.
He said the concept emphasised on the element of inclusiveness in every effort initiated by the government because it realised that the country’s potentials could be attained if everyone could move and act as one community, that is, as Malaysians.
It is learnt that more details on the period and the contents of the ‘1Malaysia Integration Programme‘ with Air Asia would be announced by the airline next week.
The Prime Minister and his wife, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, later boarded the aircraft for a trip to Kuantan, together with several community leaders who were specially brought here from Sabah and Sarawak for the programme today, as well as a group of journalists.
Najib said that besides supporting the integration programme, his presence aimed to give recognition to Air Asia as an airline that had succeeded in promoting itself as a brand or trend that was famous at the international level.
Twenty workers took 12 days using 121 cans of paint to prepare the livery for the Airbus A320 1Malaysia aircraft with a capacity of 180 passengers which was launched today.
The aircraft would be used on routes operated by Air Asia Berhad, covering more than 70 destinations in 20 countries, bringing the 1Malaysia experience to the world community.
