Air Asia Brings In Ex-Ryanair To Expand

Having been bought by Tune Air - a local music record label (EMI-Warner Malaysia), Air Asia is keen to continue with its expansion and has brought in ex-Ryanair executives to oversee its plans - despite the recent events surrounding travel and the aviation industry.

Air Asia plans to become Southeast Asia's first 'no-frills' airline and hopes to emulate Ryanair's and EasyJet's success. It states that currently only 6% of Malaysians use air travel as a main source of travel - so it sees the domestic market to be potentially huge.

Air Asia has already begun expanding regionally and it is unclear as to whether or not it plans to make these routes 'no-frills' or not.

Although entirely owned by Tony Fernandes - a local - Tune Air has not denied allegations that he has been in contact with Richard Branson and the Virgin Group.

So are they looking at international routes or just Malaysian/SIN/Brunei routes?

Cool...then, it can compete on the busy KUL-SIN v.v. route vice versa where one need to pay about 70 USD one way for that one-hour flight. I believe that there's definetly room for expansion in the SE-Asian aviation market!
