Previously, others like Ola Cabs and Airtel also announced schemes to dispense with OnePlus Two invites, which enable the user to buy a OnePlus Two handset for Rs 24,999.
The AirAsia offer is valid on ticket bookings made between September 30, 2015 and October 09, 2015 on airasia.com, for people planning to travel between October 10, 2015 and October 20, 2015.
“The lucky winners will receive the physical invites while they are seated inside the flight from the AirAsia crew members. The goodies don’t stop at that! OnePlus fans travelling on AirAsia even stand a chance to win OnePlus 2 smartphones on select flights,” it said.
While this may be good publicity for all concerned, such schemes often increase frustration levels for fans who have registered for invites and have been waiting for weeks to get their hands of OnePlus Twos. OnePlus is reported to be handing out around 75,000 invites over this week and the previous one.
Commenting on the association, Mittu Chandilya, AirAsia India CEO & Managing Director said, “Coming together with a brand as popular as OnePlus is very exciting for us at AirAsia. Ours is a brand that reflects vibrancy and breaks barriers at all levels. OnePlus has been constantly evolving and has carved a niche for itself in the market within a short span of time. This association is sure to excite our flyers that are always in store for a fresh and fulfilling flying experience. The added anticipation of receiving a OnePlus 2 invite during this travel period is going to make it even more memorable!”
Vikas Agarwal, General Manager – India, OnePlus said, “This is a unique and a first-of-its-kind collaboration between an airline and a smartphone brand. We are excited to be associated with a like-minded brand such as AirAsia and become a trendsetter in the industry. OnePlus never ceases to surprise its fans and this campaign has been designed to do that! This is our way of making their dreams of owning a OnePlus 2 by simply flying AirAsia.”
