Air Asia meals are not included in the price of your ticket. They offer an assortment of meals, drinks and snacks for sale aboard all of their flights. Air Asia passengers can now book a special inflight burger meal from which 10% of the purchase price goes to a fund to support the fight against HIV/AIDS. The burger features a chicken patty infused with fish sauce, kaffir lime leaves and lemongrass, topped with zesty nam prik noom mayo (green chilli mayonnaise), shredded purple cabbage and tomato on a red beetroot bun. For each burger sold, 10% of sales will go to the “Global Fund” of (RED) to support HIV/AIDS testing, counselling, treatment and prevention programmes in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) region.

You can pre-book the INSPI(RED) Burger with a free drink at a promotional price of RM10 (US$2.42) on Air Asia flights across all Air Asia destinations until December 31, 2019.
