In AirAsia, we inspire our female Allstars to unleash their potential and achieve their dreams. Here is a video showing incredible women in AirAsia throughout the Group from engineers, pilots, security officers, members of senior management and more. #GirlsCanDoAnything
Tony Fernandes is the CEO of AirAsia and one of the most recognizable business leaders in the region. He is outspoken, a maverick and often treads (in his own words), “a fine line between brilliance and stupidity”. By his own admission, some of his business bets haven’t paid off - taking over a Formula One team and a football club. But others certainly have.
Behind his success is a story of taking huge risks - he bought AirAsia for 1 Malaysian Ringgit when nobody else saw its potential value when only 6% of Malaysians were flying. To Tony, that meant 94% of the market was untapped. He soon turned it around, growing the airline from 2 to 200 planes and reporting a profit within a year.
AirAsia: a travel tech company
We connect people and places through 293 routes across Asia and the Pacific with operations and offices in Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand, India and Japan. Our people, whom we call Allstars, come from more than 60 nationalities.
TALKIN' ABOUT A REVOLUTION
In 2001, we sparked a travel revolution in Asia with our no-frills, hassle-free, low-fare offerings and personalised services for our guests. Since then, more than half a billion people have flown with us. We fly to 130 destinations in China, India, Japan, South-East Asia, Australia and the United States. We operate 1,300 flights a day through a fleet of 240 aircraft.
Our operations are lean, simple and efficient without compromising safety. We innovated the use in Asia of a single aircraft type; high aircraft utilisation; no-frills; and a point-to-point network. As a result, we've managed to operate at the lowest cost of any airline in the world.
Innovative use of technology has played a big role in our success. Our digital strategy is to reduce costs further, drive revenue higher and make AirAsia a truly fun place to work. Our vision is of frictionless travel by capitalising on data and technology, our expansive network and, importantly, our people. We call this AirAsia 3.0.
We are always grateful for the love and support of our guests and Allstars as we aim to be the preferred airline of Asia and beyond and employer of choice. And in 2019, we were delighted to win Skytrax's best low-cost airline award for an unprecedented 11th year in a row. Thank you to all.
