The Malaysian airline Air Asia is based in Kuala Lumpur. Air Asia is the largest low cost airline in all of Asia. It wants to make flying possible for everyone with low prices. The low-cost flight concept operates according to a no-frills system, which enables the passenger to purchase certain services such as meals on board, luggage and seat selection for an additional fee in addition to the standard services included in the price. The state airline’s home airport, which was founded in 1993, is Kuala Lumpur International Airport. Important hubs are the Kota Kinabalu International Airport and the Senai International Airport in Johor Bahru. Air Asia has a Thai and an Indonesian subsidiary.
Founded in 1993, the low cost airline Air Asia began its activities three years later, in November 1996. Acquired in 2001 by the Malaysian businessman Tony Fernandes following too much debt, Air Asia has generated profits in 2002. From then, new destinations were offered to the customers. These new destinations from the Malaysian capital, displayed at very advantageous prices, have enabled the company to break the monopoly that Malaysia Airlines had until then. A second hub was opened in 2003 at Johor Bahru – Senai airport and flights to international destinations such as Bangkok, Xiamen, Macao, the Philippines, Cambodia or Vietnam were created in the years that followed.
The states of Sarawak and Sabah, in the north of the island of Borneo, are served by Air Asia from August 2006.In order to be able to increase its offer of destinations, the company began in 2004 to renew its entire fleet by ordering more than a hundred Airbuses. On April 5, 2007, Air Asia announced its three-year partnership with the British Formula 1 team Williams, as well as the creation of Air Asia X, a low-cost airline affiliated with Air Asia. In 2015, it opened a base in Lankgawi and a Seoul / Rome link.
The company has a large number of subsidiaries, the airlines it shares;
