AirAsia Group to accelerate growth in 2017 with more deliveries, India push and Japan launch
The AirAsia Group is planning to accelerate expansion in 2017, with several additional deliveries. The short haul LCC is bullish on its prospects for 2017, particularly in India, Indonesia and the Philippines which are on course to achieve profitability by the end of 2016.
The group is also hoping to benefit from more favourable conditions in its original home markets of Malaysia and Thailand. While AirAsia has remained profitable at a group level over the last two years it has been impacted by relatively challenging conditions in Malaysia and Thailand and steep losses in India, Indonesia and the Philippines.
