Eat an in-flight burger and help fight AIDS

AirAsia and Santan have teamed up with (RED) to create a special in-flight meal, the INSPI(RED) Burger, in support of the fight to end AIDS.

Created by New York-based (RED) chef/ambassador Hong Thaimee, the burger draws on her Northern Thai roots to deliver an East-meets-West experience. 

It features a chicken patty infused with fish sauce, kaffir lime leaves and lemongrass, topped with zesty nam prik noom mayo (green chilli mayonnaise), shredded purple cabbage and tomato on a red beetroot bun.

For every INSPI(RED) Burger sold, 10% of sales will go to the Global Fund to support HIV/AIDS testing, counselling, treatment and prevention programs in the ASEAN region.

(RED) Chef Ambassador Hong Thaimee said: “As a Thai chef based in New York, I wanted to combine the best of both worlds - Thai flavours and the classic all-American burger - to make a meal that would be easy for the airline passengers to enjoy. 

"Since I started my culinary journey, it’s been my mission and passion to bring Thai food to a wider audience, and it’s exciting to think that I can introduce the flavours of my hometown of Chiang Mai to the 8 million guests who fly with AirAsia each month.”

Guests are encouraged to pre-book the INSPI(RED) Burger with a complimentary drink at a promotional price of only RM10 on AirAsia flights across all AirAsia destinations.

Santan meals are available for pre-booking via My Bookings on airasia.com.

(RED) partners with the world’s most iconic brands that contribute proceeds from (RED)-branded goods and services to the Global Fund.
