Air Asia named The Best Asian Low cost carrier

KUALA LUMPUR, 11 OCTOBER 2010 – AirAsia was named the Best Asian Low-Cost Carrier by TTG, Asia Pacific’s leading travel news publisher.

AirAsia was unanimously named Best Asian Low-Cost Carrier by the readers of TTG Asia, TTG China, TTGmice, TTG-BTmice China and ttgasia eDaily who cast 48,000 votes in a poll held from June to August this year. The award reflects the airline’s popularity among travel trade insiders and the traveling public.

Dato’ Aziz Bakar, chairman of AirAsia, received the award at the 21st Annual TTG Travel Awards 2010 Ceremony & Gala Dinner in Centara Grand & Bangkok Convention Centre at CentralWorld, Bangkok. More than 700 travel industry professionals attended the event.

Dato’ Aziz said, “We are proud to be named the best low-cost airline again. This award reflects AirAsia’s commitment to excellence and to growing travel and tourism in the region. We have flown 100 million guests in only eight years of operations as a low-cost airline that has made it truly possible for everyone to fly.”

“The innovation that is AirAsia will go on serving the region with low fares, an extensive network of destinations, great flight frequencies and friendly ASEAN service,” he added.
Dato’ Aziz thanked the almost 8,000-strong AirAsians who have been instrumental in the success of the airline across all fronts.

In 2009, TTG’s editorial board also named AirAsia Group CEO Tony Fernandes the Travel Personality of the Year for being the “most outstanding individual for taking proactive steps to develop the travel industry and for demonstrating innovation in his field.” Tony has led the airline in revolutionizing air travel and popularizing low fares that now allow everyone to fly.

The airline has invested millions of dollars in quality improvement measures that include the running of its world-class training center, the AirAsia Academy. Technology is integrated in operations across the airline’s entire network to improve operational efficiency, and training programs are in place to ensure high quality service.
