Sharing the same sentiment, Chin Hor Wai, 7-Eleven Malaysia’s General Manager of Marketing said: “By partnering with airasia Super App, we strive to provide further convenience as airasia ride passengers are now able to choose selected 7-Eleven stores across Malaysia as their preferred pick-up point. We are particularly excited about the breadth and depth of this partnership with airasia ride as it reinforces our position as the undisputed leading standalone convenience retailer in providing the best and ultimate convenience experience for our customers as well as airasia passengers alike.”
“Through this unprecedented collaboration, we aim to work towards making things convenient for both our customers and airasia ride passengers as we live up to our motto of Always There For You,” added Chin.
airasia ride drivers will also have the added advantage of leveraging one of the strongest airline brands in Asia, to better serve customers travelling to and from the airport. Guests on AirAsia flights now have the option of booking their rides upon purchasing their flights, allowing drivers to secure more jobs in advance and can plan their trips more efficiently and productively. They will also have real-time information on passenger arrivals, enabling drivers to have better time management by reducing waiting time, resulting in the ability to make more trips, and earn more.
On top of that, drivers take 85% of the net fares (excluding toll charges), higher than other e-hailing providers in the market, making it a viable part-time job option and side income opportunity. Fares on airasia ride are set based on fair pricing, which takes into consideration what our guests can afford while still compensating for any extra travel time caused by heavy traffic.
