AirAsia’s strategy aligns with the company’s approach to marketing, as explained by Rudy Khaw, CEO of AirAsia Brand co, at MARKETING-INTERACTIVE’s Content 360 conference. He emphasizes the importance of gut feel and intuition for big ideas, stating that data can sometimes be a barrier to creativity. He advocates for a more forward-thinking and visionary approach to marketing.

Khaw also highlights the importance of authenticity in content creation, noting that consumers are looking for human connections in brand marketing. He suggests that any aspect of life can be turned into content, emphasizing the ubiquity of content in everyday experiences.

The campaign is in its early stages, with AirAsia promising more travel inspiration and destination content in the coming weeks.
