airasia Super App launches new in-app e-wallet feature, ‘airasia pocket’

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – The airasia Super App has launched a brand new feature, airasia pocket, which is an e-wallet within the super app that enables users to reload and make payments for all the products and services on the app while being rewarded at the same time. 

The airasia pocket is currently available to all airasia Super App users in Malaysia in the Ringgit Malaysia currency. It is easily accessible through the super app by setting up an airasia pocket account with a few simple steps. Two types of airasia pocket accounts are available – the Lite and Pro. The Lite account is recommended for everyday use with a wallet size limit of RM500, while the Pro account is designed for higher value transactions with a wallet size of up to RM4,999.

Users of airasia pocket will be able to earn airasia points upon activation, apart from enjoying an extra 10% off all AirAsia flight bookings and 10x airasia points with every airasia food order on weekends. 

The airasia pocket’s features are developed by Fasspay, a white-label e-wallet player and an approved e-money provider by Bank Negara Malaysia. This platform is designed to allow its partners to build and innovate on Fasspay’s full-stack payments platform and offer various payment and financial services to their customers.

“This includes payments for flights and hotel bookings, as well as on airasia food, airasia grocer, airasia xpress, or when booking a ride through airasia ride. This aligns with our fintech strategy to drive a seamless user experience and make online payments’ invisible’. By working with our partner Fasspay, users can have peace of mind as this new feature is completely secure, fully compliant, and licensed by Bank Negara Malaysia,” said Fadzil.

Meanwhile, Amanda Woo, CEO of airasia Super App, said, “airasia pocket is the more accessible, faster, and more rewarding way to pay for anything within the airasia ecosystem and will facilitate a better user experience.
