Teddy Cambosa - March 3, 2021

Singapore – Airasia’s food delivery service airasia food has finally kicked off its Singapore operations with a special promo of unlimited free delivery perk for its first customers.

The unlimited free delivery service will be available March 2 to 16 from deliveries within 8km from the order point. Airasia food will be offering a long list of menu options from popular outlets like No Signboard Seafood, The Shepherd’s Pie, Swee Choon Tim Sum, Maki-san, Pizza Express.

For Tony Fernandes, CEO at airasia Group, their recent expansion hopes to help establish airasia food as a “notable player in the food delivery scene in Singapore,” noting that at least 50% of Singaporeans eating out every day and a staggering 2.7 million active online food delivery users in 2020 have been evident in the region.

“At airasia food, our mission has always been to help local food businesses keep their cost low by offering a much lower commission rate that can then be passed on to customers so they can enjoy even lower prices for their favorite dishes. Through airasia food, we are very proud to be able to contribute to the economy in general and at the same time help create more jobs as our merchants grow in their business and we are constantly on the lookout to expand our airasia delivery team in Singapore,” Fernandes said.

Meanwhile, Lim Ben-Jie, airasia super app’s head of e-commerce states that they are inviting other F&B outlets in Singapore to sign up to their platform, noting that “delivery riders can earn up to SGD700 a week on average.”

“We continue to welcome more F&B operators to join us, and airasia food will provide dedicated teams who will onboard merchants and enable them to go live within 48 hours with no registration or setup fees. Coupled with the lower commission rates for merchants and one of the most affordable delivery rates compared to market incumbents, we want to contribute positively towards the whole food delivery chain in Singapore and to further grow this segment,” Ben-Jie stated.
