The world’s best low-budget airline AirAsia has just released their new application for BlackBerry. In their e-mail, they said, “This application is for ‘Demo’ purposes only it has no direct connection to the live AirAsia systems. It currently points to a test server. Please take the time to browse through its functions.”

So far, in demo version, it seems that the application is easy to navigate. Step-by-step instruction is clear and whoever familiar with web-version of AirAsia website would also find the same menu in BlackBerry application. Main menu: Book a Flight, My Bookings, Mobile Checkin, Boarding Passes, Flight Status and About. Looks like there are some type-errors that they have to fix.

Menu for selecting flight lets user select their desirable flight and brings you to this confirmation screen.

The application allows user to pre-order their preferred onboard meal, comfort kit and type of baggage.

Another good thing is pick-a-seat menu. It shows the legend of seat categories. Hopefully the changes of occupancy is accurate and real time.

Finally, it ends up in payment form. AirAsia needs to confirm that the form in secure and payment system through this BlackBerry application is completely safe.
