AirAsia: “Based on the forward booking trend, the underlying passenger demand in the third quarter remains positive. The passenger growth rate should be similar to the levels achieved in the first half of 2009. The current fuel price, although higher relative to the first half of 2008, is substantially lower than the USD162 per barrel we paid in the third quarter 2008. Other cost items are expected to remain low as we extract further efficiency gains and benefits of economies of scale,” Tony Fernandes, CEO. Source: AirAsia, 12-Aug-2009.
