AirAsia: “Forward bookings are looking very good. The fourth quarter, of course, is traditionally our strongest quarter. To head into our strongest season on the back of a soaring first quarter and a record-breaking second quarter puts us in a fantastic position. We are continuing to grow our market in India especially from our other hubs in Thailand, making the subcontinent a key player in our growth strategy. We are also completing our final chapter on connecting all the ASEAN capitals from our Kuala Lumpur hub by introducing Yangon destination, making us a Truly ASEAN carrier,” Tony Fernandes, CEO.
