Budget Airline Airasia To Add Around 30 Jets This Year Amid Strong Demand – CEO


Budget airline group AirAsia Bhd plans to add around 30 jets to its airline affiliates across Asia this year due to strong demand growth across the region, CEO Tony Fernandes said on Tuesday.

AirAsia, which operates close to 200 airplanes and is one of Airbus SE’s biggest customers, has airlines in Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, the Philippines, India and Japan and plans to grow in China and Vietnam.

“We’ve been able to get the Philippines and Indonesia really rocking, turning them into little gems,” Fernandes said in an interview with Reuters TV on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Davos. “Demand is good, the ancillary model is doing well and our JV business using our data has started moving.”

Fernandes said the board of AirAsia’s Indian arm, a joint venture with Tata Group, had approved plans to pursue an initial public offering and was appointing bankers for initial work.
