AirAsia is now offering full-time employment to all AirAsia Food and AirAsia Xpress riders, with a guaranteed monthly income of up to RM3,000. Included with the guaranteed income is the full suite of Allstar benefits which include EPF, SOCSO, medical coverage that covers their spouses and children as well, annual leaves, and travel benefits such as AirAsia Flights ID90 & e-coupon schemes.
The AirAsia Super App has become the first in Asia to provide gig riders with full-time employment, as part of its commitment in giving them a better working environment and job stability, while enhancing income opportunities for the riders.
Being part of the Capital A ecosystem, the newly absorbed full-time employees will have opportunities to explore and develop their careers further. From a delivery rider, they can also explore other employment options within the Capital A ecosystem, such as cabin crew, pilot, data analyst, digital marketer, and much more.
Capital A CEO, Tony Fernandes said, “We are thrilled to be welcoming the riders into our family. As many people know, AirAsia has always been about people, and we believe that people are our greatest asset. This applies across all of Capital A’s business units, including the AirAsia Super App.
“Just as our baggage handlers, cabin crew, and pilots are the backbones of our aviation business, these gig workers are the heroes of our delivery operations. We don’t believe in contract staff and will now move towards employing all riders as full-time employees, receiving the same benefits that every AllStar receives, on top of the excellent benefits from AirAsia food & Airasia Xpress respectively.”
“Over the years, AirAsia has created tens of thousands of job opportunities across the region. With our expansion as a super app platform, we have also depended on gig workers’ crucial services for lifestyle services such as food & parcel deliveries. Giving full-time employment to our gig riders is more than just offering them AllStar benefits; it’s about adding value to their lives and career paths, allowing them to dream and making those dreams come true,” he added.
AirAsia food is currently serving customers in Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, and Indonesia and the delivery service by airasia xpress is currently available in Malaysia, Singapore, and Thailand.
