AirAsia goes Corporate(1)

KUALA LUMPUR – AirAsia, Malaysia’s low-cost carrier, yesterday launched GoCorporate, a service that caters exclusively to business organisation.

GoCorporate is specially designed to help organisations save time and money through effective management of their travel plans, and gain access to comprehensive reports over their staff movements. It empowers organisations to set their own corporate travel policies, and remove the hassle of booking through travel agents.

Above all, GoCorporate clients will benefit from AirAsia’s everyday low fares, said its chief executive officer, Tony Fernandes.

Corporations, which handle more than 500 flight sectors per year, can take part in this programme by registering for AirAsia GoCorporate. They will be assigned a personalised AirAsia GoCorporate website, and a unique company account identifier (CID), which is password protected.

The personalised easy to use, and easy to book, GoCorporate website contains information related to the travel needs of the respective organisations, and allows corporations to have more control over their travel planning.

According to a Business Times report, Malaysia's Resorts World, which operates the Genting Highlands casino, has signed up as a GoCorporate client
Fernandes said corporate clients could also charter entire planes for their staff.

Resorts World has not discounted the possibility of chartering AirAsia planes to bring more gamblers from Singapore and elsewhere to its resort
Besides Resorts World, Silverlake Systems and GlaxoSmithKline Pharmaceuticals have also joined the programme.
