The Malaysian Institute of Estate Agents (MIEA) and AirAsia today announced their partnership through a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signing ceremony to offer greater travel flexibility for MIEA members.
The MoU was signed by MIEA President Eric Lim and AirAsia Group Head of Corporate Sales Alex Tan Heng Lay.
MIEA President, Eric Lim said "This collaboration with AirAsia is a great milestone for MIEA. AirAsia is the first airline to partner with us and we are thrilled to be working with the World's Best Low-Cost airline. This collaboration is a good step forward for MIEA as members will have access to special rates and travel conveniences, making it a seamless experience for their business travels.
"We are also now focusing our operations within the Asean property market which we believe will grow further leveraging on AirAsia's connectivity across the region. MIEA is also a member of the Asean Real Estate Network Alliance (ARENA) which represents eight real estate national associations in Asean and this collaboration will enhance our members to play a bigger role in marketing properties in Asean," he added.
AirAsia Malaysia CEO Riad Asmat said, "It is great to have an association like MIEA onboard with us that shares the same vision to offer top-notch services for its customers. We are glad to be able to enhance its business operations by allowing members to have more seamless travel experiences while minimising business travel costs through the MyCorporate privileges. As a truly Asean airline, members will also be able to leverage on our extensive network across all 10 Asean countries and continue to stimulate the region's growth."
Under the MoU, over 5,000 real estate agents and negotiators nationwide under MIEA will be able to enjoy the privileges of AirAsia MyCorporate, such as flight-change flexibility, essential add-ons to provide extra comfort, more savings with corporate bundled fares, AirAsia BIG points rewards and dedicated corporate client support.
