AirAsia has apologised after its advertising campaign was labelled “harmful” in Australia.
The advert containing the phrase “Get off in Thailand” was posted around the city of Brisbane to promote the airline’s direct route to Bangkok.
Collective Shout, a grassroots campaign movement against the objectification of women claimed that the advert was promoting sex tourism in Thailand.
Thailand has over 123,530 sex workers, according to a 2014 UNAids report.
Melinda Liszewski, a campaigner at Collective Shout spotted the adverts on a Brisbane bus and posted the image to social media.
She accused the airline of “promoting sex tourism.”
