AirAsia is Asia's biggest low cost airline, based at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport. This airline operates both domestic and international flights and sponsors Malaysia’s national football team! From Kuala Lumpur, catch cheap flights to Kota Kinabalu, Kuching, Labuan, Langkawi, Macao, Indonesia, and Thailand.
AirAsia was founded in 1993 by the government of Malaysia but did not begin operations until 1996. In 2001 the airline was privatised after years of debt and profit poured in almost immediately. The new owner, Time Warner executive Tony Fernandes’ company Tune Air, added new routes from the airline’s hub in Kuala Lumpur and the airline became a leading competitor to Malaysia Airlines. AirAsia’s second hub opened in 2003 in Senai International Airport, near Singapore. AirAsia plans to strengthen and increase traffic in Asia by expanding its network and making connections in Indochina, South China and India. It now has eight subsidiary airlines which it uses to operate regional and domestic low cost flights. Look for the red and which aircraft when you’re booking cheap flights to Bangkok!
