Its regional head of commercial Kathleen Tan said that while the airfares were available online from its website, the Go Holiday packages, which include flight and accommodation, would only be on offer at the fair.
Matta Fair will be held at the Putra World Trade Centre from Friday to Sunday.
Tan said the Go Holiday packages for three-day, two-night trips were priced from RM156 to domestic destinations and from RM165 to international destinations.
“We are aware that the crowd that goes to this fair is different from those who book our tickets and packages online. This is why we have made these offers only available at the fair site only,” she said.
Tan added that the airline was also working closely with travel agents at the fair to enable them to come up with special tour packages.
“AirAsia is also working closely with Tourism Queensland, Gold Coast Tourism and Western Australia Tourism for the fair to promote AirAsia X’s destinations in Australia.
“Especially flown in from Queensland will be Warner Movie World’s Batman, Tweety and Bugs Bunny. The cartoon characters will add to the show’s atmosphere with four daily performances,” Tan said.
Those buying a flight or accommodation from the low-cost carrier will be eligible to enter a “Spin the Wheel” competition and stand a chance to win a variety of prizes. They include return air tickets to one of AirAsia’s destinations, free passes to tourist attractions, hotel accommodation, gift vouchers and MP3 players.
