AirAsia and Sony announces joint ambassador
#ThroughTheLens progresses as an inspirational campaign featuring renowned Malaysian artistes
Following a 10-week global search, the joint ambassador for AirAsia and Sony was revealed at a star-studded media event and announced to be 29 year old Aisha Nazar from Kuala Lumpur. Her visual stories stood out amongst over 700 submissions from around the world and won the hearts of the professional judges, clinching her the one-year joint ambassadorship prize with the two leading travel and technology brands.
AirAsia X Group Head of Commercial Barry Klipp said, “It is almost 11 years now since we started flying long haul, low cost, enabling consumers to travel further, for less. It is heartwarming to see so many visually compelling travel stories from our guests shared through this inaugural joint ambassador search with Sony. These inspiring stories are a great example of what drives us at AirAsia to continue to expand our long-haul network and make more destinations accessible to all as we continue to live up to our promise of now everyone can fly extra long. I take the opportunity to thank Sony for their support and enthusiasm in this partnership and I congratulate all of our winners including our appointed joint ambassador, who now has the opportunity of a lifetime ahead of her.”
Sony Malaysia Managing Director Satoru Arai said, "We can see that the passion for photography and travel has advanced tremendously, as it is now possible for everyone to produce high quality photos with amazing aesthetics to tell inspiring travel stories with the latest visual technology, much like all the submissions we have received from this joint ambassador search. Our hope is to keep this passion for photography alive so that more people can share the beauty of this world through their camera lens when they travel.”
To further inspire travelling, AirAsia will be running a special two-week promotion to ALL destinations with fares on sale discounted by up to 70%. Guests can book online at airasia.com from now until 28 October for immediate travel or until 30 June 2019.
