At launch, AirAsia Xpress will only be available within Klang Valley, Melaka, Johor Bahru, Kota Bharu, Penang, Ipoh, and Kota Kinabalu. However, AirAsia says that the feature will soon roll out to cities in Sabah, Sarawak, Terengganu, Negeri Sembilan, Kedah, and eventually, nationwide although the exact timeline of the expansion was not revealed today.
AirAsia and Teleport’s ambitions are actually bigger than just nationwide deliveries; the plan is to be able to send parcels to any city, state, and even any Asian country within 24 hours, as well as Australia. Interesting enough, the company says that it expects to expand deliveries to other South East Asian countries by the second or third quarter of 2022.
You can use the service starting from today by tapping on the “Xpress” icon in the AirAsia Super App. The service charges its customers based on the distance of the delivery and they are given the option of instant delivery or same-day delivery (which takes between two to six hours to be completed) using either a car or a motorcycle.
The delivery charge for the AirAsia Xpress service starts at RM4.00 and it currently operates between 10 AM to 9 PM on a daily basis. In conjunction with the launch of its new delivery service, AirAsia is also giving all users free instant delivery from 23 to 25 November although this offer is capped at RM10.
