Now, everyone can ride – AirAsia’s e-hailing service

AirAsia Group Bhd has launched airasia ride, an e-hailing service that provides passengers with greater convenience at more competitive prices, as well as better income opportunities for drivers.

AirAsia chief executive officer (CEO) Tony Fernandes said the group was also planning to roll out the new e-hailing service in other countries, including Thailand, Indonesia, the Philippines and Singapore.

“The response from drivers (in Malaysia) has been tremendous and people are looking forward to the service,” he said at the virtual launch of airasia ride today.

The e-hailing service is currently available in the Klang Valley.

Passengers may choose their preferred vehicle type as well as the driver, and book the ride by clicking on the “Ride” icon on the airasia Super App or by logging on to

According to airasia ride Malaysia CEO Lim Chiew Shan, 1,500 drivers have registered with the service platform to date, and 5,000 more are expected to come on board over the next six months with its nationwide expansion.

“We will deploy the drivers gradually to make sure the supply is in sync with demand, thus optimising the number of jobs each driver would get.

“airasia ride drivers will also keep 85% of the net fares, excluding the toll charges,” Lim said, adding that the rate was higher than those offered by other ride-hailing services.

Meanwhile, fares on airasia ride are set at an average of RM1 per km (excluding toll charges) and passengers may book on-demand rides or book their rides in advance.

Lim said that to boost the incomes and livelihoods of airasia ride drivers, they will also be allowed to take on jobs such as delivering parcels or AirAsia food.

He noted that being part of the AirAsia Group with its strong portfolio of airline management, e-commerce, financial technology, logistics and now, e-hailing services, airasia ride is able to leverage the group’s rich and vast data and algorithm, enabling passengers to experience a seamless and connected journey.

“Very soon, passengers will be able to use their BIG Points to pay for their rides and be able to enjoy the lowest fare available in addition to getting free rides, just like the iconic AirAsia Free Seats,” he said. FMT
