In Aug-2017, AirAsia Berhad announced its intention to implement a proposed internal reorganisation by way of a members' scheme of arrangement. Under the current corporate structure, AirAsia Berhad acts as the listed investment holding company of the AirAsia Group as well as the operating company for air transportation services in Malaysia. Through the proposed internal reorganisation, the investment holding function and the Malaysian airline business will be separated and AirAsia Group Berhad will become the investment holding vehicle assuming the listing status of AirAsia Berhad, while AirAsia Berhad will continue to operate the Malaysian airline business. The proposed internal reorganisation is expected to be complete by 1Q2018.
