AirAsia Is Offering You Cheaper Tickets To Fly To Vietnam To Support Harimau Malaya
Truth be told, supporting our national football team is like riding a rollercoaster; one minute you're up, the other you're going downhill so fast, you're screaming your heart out.

After winning the AFF Suzuki Cup in 2010, they've been underperforming the past couple of tournaments, especially the last edition when they were knocked out in the group stages.

But this year is (hopefully) a little different because we're in the final!

Of course, the entire nation is in a state of euphoria and football fever is at an all-time high.

It was so crazy, in fact, tickets to the first leg of the final against Vietnam, taking place at the Bukit Jalil National Stadium on Tuesday (11 December), reportedly sold out less than 30 minutes after they were put on sale. 

If you're one of those who did not manage to get a ticket to the final, worry not as there's another way to catch the final: fly all the way to Vietnam for the second leg.

No, we're not joking.

AirAsia Bhd group CEO Tony Fernandes announced over the weekend that AirAsia will be offering promotional prices for fans of Harimau Malaya who want to catch the second leg in Vietnam on Saturday (15 December).

Fernandes told The New Straits Times that the airlines will be meeting representatives from the No Bai International Airport in Hanoi on Tuesday to discuss the possibility of increasing the number of slots for AirAsia flights into the city so that more Malaysians could fly into Hanoi to support the national team.

According to Fernandes, Malaysia needs as much support as possible and "AirAsia will try to arrange things".

Fernandes told the daily that the budget airline will be using a bigger aircraft for this occasion, and in case No Bai International Airport couldn't handle extra flights from Malaysia, they will "get flights to take off from Bangkok".

Boy, there's really no stopping AirAsia from making everyone patriotic.

At the moment, the promotional prices have yet to take effect, as the cheapest return ticket from KL to Hanoi is RM1,241.

If you're thinking of heading over to Hanoi to witness Harimau Malaya lift the title (yep, we're calling it!), hold on for a day or two.

We're sure Encik Fernandes and the AirAsia team are working on it.
