For an enhanced travel experience, guests are recommended to enroll their details for FACES on the AirAsia MOVE app to pass through pre-security and seamlessly board the flight without having to display their boarding pass and identification.

Due to the high passenger volume this upcoming festive season, guests are also advised to allow plenty of time and be at the airport at least two hours for domestic flights before the scheduled departure time.
