The airasia Super App lets you book flights, hotels, and more

Capital A, formerly known as AirAsia Group, launched its digital venture called the airasia Super App in the Philippines. It’s Southeast Asia’s fastest-growing integrated digital travel and lifestyle platform.

Following its success in Malaysia and Thailand, the app is expected to change the local e-commerce game in the Philippines. Especially with the country’s efforts gearing towards its post-pandemic recovery.

One-stop-shop travel and lifestyle app

Currently, the airasia Super App is the first and only one-stop-shop travel and lifestyle app in the country. It allows users to compare and book flights to more than 3,000 destinations with over 700 airlines to choose from.

For example, you can only visit El Nido — one of the most beautiful islands in the world — through a direct flight via AirSWIFT. Meanwhile, AirAsia doesn’t have a direct flight to El Nido. This means passengers should get off in Puerto Princesa and take land travel up north to reach El Nido. Through the Super App, you have the option to book AirAsia’s flights or even AirSWIFT.

Book hotels and more

The airasia Super App lets you find accommodations. It offers a roster of over 200,000 hotels to help you secure the best deals. Moreover, the Super App aims to take a jab against the likes of Grab and Klook. It also has services such as car rides, parcel deliveries, travel packages, and activities in the nearest future.

In the coming months, expect to see a ride-hailing service called airasia ride and digital food delivery called airasia food.

“With the reopening of borders across the region, we are sure that Filipinos will find the best travel deals on our super app, and enjoy other lifestyle offerings such as airasia food, airasia ride, airasia xpress and more when they travel to other countries like Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia and when they’re introduced in the Philippines soon,” says Tony Fernandes, CEO of Capital A Berhad.

The Super App also presents a digital tax-free shopping platform called TravelMall, which will allow users to shop for food, clothes, and other products at lower prices in just a few taps.

Full-on support from the Philippine government

Cabinet officials graced the launch of airasia Super App, welcoming the app and discussing its promising growth.

“With innovation, it’s all about introducing new ways of doing things, processes, products and services. Obviously, that kind of mindset is what we need with or without pandemic. What Super App is doing is definitely one step and probably many steps towards innovation,” says Mon Lopez, Secretary for the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI).

Emmanuel Caintic, acting secretary for the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) also congratulated Capital A on the launch.

“airasia has once again proven itself to be a digital company that evolves with time and is committed in developing relevant business solutions for the people. The official launch of the airasia Super App is a remarkable milestone as it makes technology in travel, lifestyle and financial services more understandable, affordable and flexible,” Caintic stated.

Further, Caintic described the Super App as “a testament to pivot to digital economy because it’s the best driver for growth.”
