Low-cost carrier AirAsia has announced a partnership with ride-sharing app Uber, allowing travelers to request or schedule rides up to a month ahead when confirming, booking or checking in for AirAsia flights via its website or mobile app.

“By working together, we can provide a service that allows customers to request their Uber ride to the airport in step with their itinerary and have their Uber driver partner waiting for them when their flight lands,” said Uber's chief business officer for Asia Pacific, Brooks Entwistle, in a press release. “So, whether you’re trying to get home to see your family, or heading to an important business meeting, your travel experience should be seamless, from door-to-door.”

Meanwhile, AirAsia Group CEO Tony Fernandes stated: "Working with Uber allows our guests to plan their entire trip from the moment they step out of their home right until they arrive at their destination, providing amazing travel comfort and peace of mind.”

New Uber users will also be able to enjoy free or discounted rides by signing up and entering promo code “AIRASIA”.

The partnership will cover 52 cities in 16 markets across the Asia-Pacific and the United States, where both companies operate. (kes)
