AirAsia: “AirAsia has well-arrived in the Indian market to change the very definition of low-cost airlines as the India market is booming. We are proud to position Kuala Lumpur as the gateway to India and at the same time it is India’s gateway to ASEAN. This is also a timely effort in response to our Prime’s Minister’s call on strengthening Malaysia – India bilateral relations. AirAsia will support this by liberalizing the air travel with our undisputed low-fares, opening-up the India market to the world and support businesses and more,” Tony Fernandes, CEO.
