Air Asia Self Check-In

Online check-ins and self check-in machines might have been around for a while, but not a lot of people actually use the system, usually because they don’t know how. Having flown on 4 Air Asia flights in the past 1 1/2 weeks, the self check-in system saved us a lot of time. To help you get to your departure gate faster, we put together the below step by step guide for you.
