AirAsia stomped into the year of the Dragon with a celebration of its 100th Airbus A320 adorned with a dragon livery in January. A brand new corporate identity was announced later in May, offering a fresher, simpler outlook but retaining the vivacious brand values that AirAsia is known for.

And as AirAsia’s 11th anniversary draws closer, the airline will continue to chart a growth path that will enhance guests’ traveling experience and increase service quality.
Aireen Omar, Chief Executive Officer of AirAsia Berhad commented, “AirAsia Berhad is turning 11 very soon, and this would not have been possible without the support of our guests. It is exciting for me as I assumed the role only from July this year, and seeing what AirAsia has grown into in its 11th year of operations motivates me further to provide more value for our guests and to keep the AirAsia promise of affordable travel for all.”
“We hope to strengthen our route network and connectivity which spans to over 85 destinations across nearly 24 countries moving forward, and this 11th Birthday Bash promotion showcases how easy it is for our guests to connect to various destinations from the numerous hubs we operate from around the region,” added Aireen.
