SINGAPORE, 2 March 2021 – The rapidly growing food delivery platform of airasia super app – airasia food – is set to revolutionise the food delivery service sector in Asean with its official entry into Singapore today.

Tony Fernandes, CEO airasia Group said: “Our expansion into Singapore is a key milestone for airasia super app that has been Asean’s fastest growing ecommerce platform since it was launched last year. We are proud that despite the tough times we are facing due to the COVID-19 pandemic, airasia super app and airasia food in particular, are making even strong headway by expanding into other countries and regions.
“With at least 50% of Singaporeans eating out every day and a staggering 2.7 million active online food delivery users in 2020, we are thrilled to be a notable player in the food delivery scene in Singapore, the most vibrant market in the region, if not the world. Singapore is always very close to our hearts and for me personally, I can’t wait for the day I can fly down to do some deliveries myself.
“At airasia food, our mission has always been to help local food businesses keep their cost low by offering a much lower commission rate that can then be passed on to customers so they can enjoy even lower prices for their favourite dishes.
“airasia food has the right infrastructure provided by airasia’s logistics venture, Teleport and the ability to tap into the airasia ecosystem which contains a strong consumer database. Through airasia food, we are very proud to be able to contribute to the economy in general and at the same time help create more jobs as our merchants grow in their business and we are constantly on the lookout to expand our airasia delivery team in Singapore.”
Lim Ben-Jie, airasia super app Head of e-Commerce commented: “We continue to welcome more F&B operators to join us, and airasia food will provide dedicated teams who will onboard merchants and enable them to go live within 48 hours with no registration or setup fees. All they need to do is fill up this form and an airasia food agent will reach out to them soonest.
“Based on our incentive scheme, we estimate that delivery riders can earn up to SGD700 a week on average and I am sure this presents a very viable option for most riders whose take-home income could have been impacted by the recent rise in petrol prices. Coupled with the lower commission rates for merchants and one of the most affordable delivery rates compared to market incumbents, we want to contribute positively towards the whole food delivery chain in Singapore and to further grow this segment.”
