AirAsia X: “After the realignment of our network during the first half of 2012, our strategy is now more focused in our core markets, where we will increase frequencies and add new destinations to build a market leadership position. Our return to profitability shows that we were right to re-tool our portfolio to focus on the Asia Pacific region, where there are many under-served markets,” Azran Osman-Rani, CEO.
