AirAsia's travel 3sixty magazine 100th amazing issues


Who has not picked up a copy of the AirAsia travel 3sixty magazine?  I know I used to covet it sooo much I would smuggle one out from the plane years ago...(ooops, I confessed) and how could I resist... that magazine was just sooooo interesting, colourful and packed with beautiful photos and amazing tips....then finally they launch the online version and I was on cloud nine.... yeah... this awesome magazine can be read now online at www.travel3sixty.com   and you can also read  it in Chinese or even Thai!!! hahahah.. so no more sneaking the magazines off the planes for me... 



Yours truly here was so happy to be invited to Marini's on 57 to celebrate travel 3sixty's 100th issue, which also marked the eighth anniversary of this fabulous award winning in-flight magazine that has over 3 million readers monthly!!!!



It was such a honour getting to mingle with the VIP guests and celebrities, such as Dato Shake who flew back from Paris, upcoming popular girl group De Fam and the lovely Izzara Aisyah....


De Fam was there to perform a couple of well loved songs including their single #supergirl, proving themselves really supergirls....


Dato Aziz Bakar, Board of Director of AirAsia Berhad then revealed the cover of  travel 3sixty 's 100th issue during this celebratory event after a short speech


Datuk Kamarudin Meranun, publisher of the travel 3sixty magazine who happens to be the Executive Chairman of AirAsia Berhad and Group CEO of AirAsiaX said that it has been quite a journey for the in-flight magazine since its establishment in 2007 and that he was pleased to see that it has grown into a sleek , stylish and informational magazine that is audited and endorsed  by the Audit Bureau of Circulations of Malaysia (ABCM)


The core mission of the magazine has always been to showcase the best of travel, culture and lifestyle and now everyone gets to enjoy the travel 3sixty magazine on both print and digital.... So congratulations travel 3sixty for this amazing feat!!!!

A special contest themed 'Invite travel 3sixty was announced in conjunction with the magazine's 100th issue to give readers an opportunity to invite the editorial team to visit their hometown and be featured as the cover story, so that local stories can be also shared on the regional front.


This inspiration came from a school teacher from the rural area in Tebedu, Sarawak who emailed the editorial team and shared his story on how he has been using the travel 3sixty magazine to open his students mind, teach them all about other cultures around the region as well as to improve their English. 

His initiative was brought to light when he emailed the editorial team requesting old copies of the magazines to be donated to the school. Since then, copies of travel 3sixty magazines have made regular appearances in the school as part of their lessons... The school teacher was awarded a RM30,000 watch at this event and Dato Aziz Bakar joked that the watch was more expensive then the one he had on....


For your information, travel 3sixty has won many awards and accolades which I personally think is well deserved... since its inception in August 2007. The most recent , being the Platinum Achievement Award at the 2nd Kuala Lumpur Mayor Tourism Award 2014 in the International Print Media cetegory which had 22 shortlisted publicationsfrom all over the world competing in the category.

Thanks #AABC and AirAsia for having me at this amazing event and for this awesome magazine.....
