The AirAsia Experience to Yogyakarta: I’m right back flying on AirAsia planes ever since my frequent annual trip to Bangkok for shopping and this time, I was on a Fam trip sponsored by AirAsia and Yogyakarta Tourism who invited members of the media and bloggers to a 4D3N Yogyakarta expedition.
Everything starts anew from checking-into your flight: AirAsia aims to cut down its cost through introducing its innovative self-service AirAsia Check-in Kisok that boasts its speedy and easy-to-use services that allow guests to complete within 2 mins through scanning or entering your itinerary number, selecting the guests to be checked-in and print your boarding pass to present to the check-in counter. I tried the check-in service myself and managed to complete the whole process effortlessly in just 3 steps!
You can also complete your check-ins through mobile check-in which is so much more faster that you don’t have to check-in only at the counter, or even better – online check-in at home or workplace – saving much more time and efforts!
The counters are all ready for you to exchange for your boarding pass – fast and efficient with no queues at the counter for me to unload my baggages to check them into my flight. I’m so ready to explore Yogyakarta !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Just a few more steps to leap off the grounds of Singapore on our real expedition to Indonesia with AirAsia – I’m so excited to visit Yogyakarta for its heritage, natural monuments like Borobudur and Mt Merapi that i’ve never dreamt… i’m going to see ’em LIVE !
The gorgeous AirAsia flight that’s going to fly us really soon to Yogyakarta – painting the skies red like finally with its wide-bodied plane – i know i’m in for an expedition – a good one away from work!
Hook up seats with your companion for a fee at SGD $3 for standard seats so that you’ll be guaranteed to be seated together or SGD $15 for Hot Seats that are much more spacious – more leg spaces and alight faster than anyone on standard seats behind you.
A bird eye view of the plane – the red seats are the Hot Seats while the others are standard seats where the kisok will automatically assign a seat for you when you checked-in at the airport. Aisle is still a little narrow to walk through with a 3 by 3 seat arrangements and 3 toilets in the aircraft.
While awaiting for the flight to land at your destination, hook up on the interesting in-flight Travel3Sixty – an exclusive AirAsia magazine that i always love to flip through pages with its interactive glossy pictures and insightful reviews on fellow travelers with guides to different destinations – an enriching entertainment indeed!
Who says you will get bored when you fly on budget airlines? Shop your way with AirAsia exclusive merchandises and duty-free items if you didn’t have the time to grab your favorite goodies on the grounds at the airport for your loved ones!
Mix and Match with AirAsia wide-range of reasonable priced food that you can choose from – chicken rice to signature-dished Nasi Lemak and this above, my 1st ever Indonesian cuisine Nasi Kuning Manado – a thumbs-up tasty dish with tuna and lots of smoked beef – truly asian style, together with Fresh Minute Maid to go with your meals!
You can also prebook your meals when you book your flights to save up to 15% off and ensure you get your meals before it will end you up being upset, should you not get the food you desire and yet snapped by other passengers.
As we land on the grounds of Indonesia at Adisucipto International Airport, i know a big wave of excitement awaits me – dreams come true with Mt Merapi that appeared on headlines last year for its eruption as well as those food food and MORE FOOD that i’m gonna feast on – gonna be engaging and fun – follow us on our journey to Yogyakarta!
