The ASEAN Explorer Pass was publicly launched on April 25, 2024, at the Digi Cinema, in Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. During the media event, Capital A Executive Chairman, Tan Sri Tony Fernandes, together with AirAsia Move CEO, Nadia Omer, announced its collaboration with the ASEAN Business Advisory Council (ASEAN-BAC) to promote business and tourism opportunities within the ASEAN region. This strategic initiative hopes to boost the region's tourism potential, foster deeper cultural exchanges, and contribute to economic growth.

Yang Berhormat Dato Sri Tiong King Sing, minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture Malaysia, and chair of the ASEAN Tourism Minister; Yang Berusaha Tuan Manoharan Periasamy, director general of Tourism Malaysia; Tan Sri Nazir Razak, chairman of ASEAN-BAC Malaysia; and other ASEAN-BAC officials graced the launch event. 

“This is a big moment for us in AirAsia. We made ASEAN smaller. ASEAN is [composed of] 10 countries with the most amazing diversity, culture, food, and historical sites. Everyone knows Bangkok, Bali, or Singapore, but there are many places you have never been. We want to encourage all of you to try and travel around the whole of ASEAN, not just the big cities. There will be days when you can’t get the seat you want, but there will always be a seat for you somewhere in this amazing place of 700 million people,” said Fernandes.

“We are proud to introduce the all-new ASEAN Explorer Pass, AirAsia Move’s signature product, which is truly designed to enable exploration of ASEAN destinations, especially hidden gems in all corners of ASEAN, beyond the popular destinations such as Bali, Bangkok, Phuket, and the main Tier-1 cities,” said Fernandes.

“Data from previous travel passes sold by AirAsia Move in December 2022 indicate that demand for travel within the ASEAN region is high, with over 80,000 international flights redeemed and flown in a year. As ASEAN continues to rise as a major hub for international trade and investment, enabling intra-ASEAN connectivity and accessibility to key travel necessities such as flights, hotels, and rides are crucial. Capital A, through AirAsia Move, is proud to enable more to explore the diverse landscapes of ASEAN, and help people go all the way,” added Fernandes.

“The launch of this pass is a testament to our collective vision of a borderless ASEAN, where barriers give way to bridges, flights, and the celebration of diversity as our greatest strength. ASEAN has greeted 100 million international tourists in 2023, which is 70 percent of pre-pandemic levels, and we are confident such efforts by AirAsia Move will move the needle in further stimulating travel, and spurring the economy of ASEAN, said Tan Sri Razak. “This product is really aligned to what ASEAN is about and what Tony Fernandes has done for the landscape of ASEAN travel and tourism, as well as the ASEAN identity over the past 20 years.”

According to Move traveling trends, among the top destinations booked throughout 2023 are Kuala Lumpur and Kota Kinabalu in Malaysia, Bangkok, and Chiang Mai in Thailand, and Manila in the Philippines, with over 30 percent of app users searching for those destinations combined.
