The airline was selling passes for merely 499 MYR ($119) each that allows unlimited travel for a year on most long/medium-haul destinations. AirAsia has extended the valid travel dates through June 30, 2021, from March 2, giving members four more months to utilize it.

It is good that AirAsia realized that their Unlimited Pass purchasers weren’t getting the deal that they originally bought because of the Covid-19 travel restrictions and entry bans.
Extending the validity by four months through June 30, 2021, should give enough time for everyone to recoup the price and then some if not this year but definitely in 2021.
