I'm really wondering what aircraft will be used to reopen the route. They cancelled this route because it wasn't viable with the a340 so I don't think they will use them again. The current a330 doesn't have the range needed. The a350/a330nea won't be coming till 2018/2019.

I made some research and managed to answer my own question. They will use the 242t MTOW a330-300 which will be delivered starting from 2015. The range of this updated version is extended by 500 nautical miles (930 km), making direct Europe-South East Asia flights possible with the a330-300.

AirAsia confirms order of 55 Airbus A330Neos for $15bn
Posted on December 16, 2014, Tuesday
http://www.theborneopost.com/2014/12...neos-for-15bn/

PARIS: Malaysian low-cost carrier AirAsia X confirmed Monday its order of 55 long-haul A330neo passenger planes from Airbus at a list price of $15 billion, in what is the biggest single order for the line of aircraft.

Since signing an agreement to purchase 50 of the new-generation A330s in July, AirAsia X has added five more planes to its order, the group said in a statement.

Airbus will begin delivering the fleet in 2018, AirAsia X said.

The Malaysian carrier is now Airbus’s biggest customer for the A330 family of aircraft, having already ordered 91 of them to date.

“This latest deal with Airbus will enable AirAsia X to consolidate its growth rate in 2015-2017 before ramping up deliveries from 2018 onwards,” said Tony Fernandes, co-founder and director of the company.

“The A330 has proven itself to be exactly the right aircraft for our business model, combining low operating costs, long-range flying capability and high levels of comfort.”

The A330neo is an updated version of Airbus’s wide-body medium-haul jet with fuel-saving engines.

AirAsia X is the long-haul and low-cost affiliate of AirAsia, which was a failing carrier in 2001 when Fernandes acquired it.

The former record industry executive quickly turned the airline around with his no-frills, low-fare formula.

Since then, it has recorded spectacular success and aggressive growth at the expense of national flag carrier Malaysia Airlines. -AFP

AirAsia introduces new Self-Service options in Johor Bahru

“Self Bag-Drop” and “Home Tag” Self-Service options

On 8th April 2015, Senai airport in Johor Bahru, AirAsia’s Southern Hub, was announced as the airline’s first AirAsia Station to introduce its new Self-Service features, the “Self Bag-Drop” and “Home Tag” service. These new services are currently being tested at the Senai airport with two machines and it is expected they will be available to all guests on Johor Bahru / Kuching and Johor Bahru / Kuala Lumpur flights beginning 20th April 2015.

Guests can use the “Self Bag-Drop” to check-in their baggage without having to queue at a check-in desk as well as print the bag tags as they use self-check-in at the kiosks. They may then drop their baggage at an automated counter. The Self Bag-Drop unit will automatically check flight data, baggage weight and size allowances for single or multiple bags before securely depositing the luggage into the baggage handling system.

This service will be welcomed by passengers as it will further reduce the necessity to queue. If you’d like to reduce your waiting time even further, you can make use of the “Home Tag” option which will allow you to print your bag tag at home along with your boarding pass when you do your web check-in.

The bag tags can be printed onto a standard A4 sheet of paper, folded and placed in a plastic cover provided by the airline, which is then attached to the bag. The bag can then be deposited at the Self Bag-Drop counter upon arrival at the airport.

Both the Self Bag Tag and Self Bag-Drop features are available from 3 hours (for international flights) and 2 hours (for domestic flights) up to 60minutes before the scheduled flight departures.

Malaysia Airline is no stranger to media scrutiny.[/size]

In the last two years, the airline has had its name splashed across every major publication with industry experts from marketing to aviation to security scrutinising every move it makes. Millions of people today are still following every word the airline utters as the mystery of its airline MH370 goes unresolved.

“That kind of scrutiny can force you to not move but we knew we had to move,” Dean Dacko, CMO of Malaysia Airline who was speaking at the Adobe symposium 2015 said.

Dacko was quick to admit that the last two years for the airline has not been an easy one describing the entire journey as “blur” and somewhat “surreal”. In the first 10 days after the MH370 incident alone, the flight saw huge commercial impacts with 10 straight days of an average of 100, 000 cancellations a day.

“The commercial impact was absolutely devastating and the magnitude of it was unbelievable. But more dramatic was the emotional component of the event impacting over 500 lives along with the staff members and colleagues we personally knew and worked with,” Dacko added.

“Some days we could not believe what was happening to us. We went from managing one crisis to the second crisis of MH17, to moving into totally recreating and the redevelopment of an entire organisation. All of which were across a relatively short period of time,” Dacko added.



Challenges of creating a refreshed identity
[/size]
According to Dacko, because of the current restructuring of various MAS operations, the budget for rebranding is yet to be determined. However, he shared that a strategic brand steering committee has been created comprising of various teams internally and externally (including stakeholders) and agencies to develop this new visual identity.

MAS recently appointed M & C Saatchi as its master creative agency, and handed its brand identity task to recreate its logo and the visual aspects of the aircraft livery, to a Singapore based shop called Profit. The agency, which beat out 18 other branding agencies including several big network names, will be helping MAS develop its brand strategy and visual components of the new logo.

For its rebranding, MAS is also looking to actively involve its staff members across various teams and departments so as to garner real time feedback on various aspects. The airline is investing its time into creating employee “brand ambassadors” who can give guidance on the new MAS direction.

“We are fully aware that in the process of launching that new identity will need the full support of its team of 14,000. They will be the first ones leveraged with going out promoting our new brand. So we need to engage them early on in the process. The new brand identity is not just something we present to them but rather something they are involved in creating. That’s part of our process now, to really engage and involve our staff,” he added.

However, the exact process is still undetermined as the organisation is in the midst of a restarting things under a new management.

The rebranding process, added Dacko, will be one which is long drawn out and carefully thought through because of the strong ties the airline has with the Malaysian people and principle stakeholders.

“This rebranding is done not only from a financial standpoint but rather keeping in mind the 42 years history MAS has had with our audience. The airline is very much ingrained with the culture of Malaysia. They refer to us as a Malaysian icon and that is true. Changing and moving that is something that requires back and forth engagement, dialogue and serious thought,” he added.

Dacko reiterated that outside Malaysia, the airline’s loyalty also runs deep with nonresident Malaysians because of the emotional warmth and support associated with the brand.

“One of the very first time people travelled out of Malaysia was on MAS and they remember how warm and comforting it was for them. That’s not a feeling that goes away. When we talk about possibly creating a new brand that would change that relationship, we really need to take seriously the emotional ties beyond the reality of the commercial component of it.”

If the revamped identity falls short of the public’s expectations, one of the major risks would be losing the supporters of the brand and potentially turning them into the airlines biggest detractors.

“It is very easy to just create a logo but there is so much that goes beyond it. So on 1 September when we launch a new identity, rather than a new image, it will be the start of our new journey of evolution with tweaks and changes being made along the way.”

Malaysia Airlines has settled on the Airbus A350 as a cornerstone of its future fleet, signing a lease agreement for four of the advanced jets to begin flying from late 2017.
The A350-900s will be sourced through Air Lease Corporation, in a deal which also sees the Malaysian flag-carrier holding lease options for two more A350-900s as well as two A330-900neo aircraft.
The delivery timeframe spans from the fourth quarter of 2017 to the middle of 2018, and will see the A350s fitted with new business class seats which the airline describes as having "very large dimensions, and will be positioned above the industry standard for business class."

"The A350 is the most technologically advanced aircraft and we are confident that it will deliver exceptional passenger comfort and improve the overall efficiency of our fleet" said Malaysia Airlines’ Chief Executive Officer Christoph Mueller in welcoming the deal.
'Efficiency' is a word set to echo through the halls of Malaysia Airlines as Mueller works to re-invent the troubled airline through what he describes as "hard reset" program.
This has already included plans to 6,000 jobs from its 20,000-strong workforce, putting two near-new Airbus A380s and four Boeing 777-200ER jets up for sale, and embarking on a series of lounge closures including Singapore and Perth.
MAS has racked up debts approaching $1.5 billion since 2011, with a dire situation worsened by last year's twin tragedies of the disappearance of flight MH370 and the shooting down of MH17.
The airline was nationalised in late 2014 by Malaysia's government-owned investment arm Khazanah Nasional, which has pledged a A$2 billion injection to fund the dramatic restructure aimed at returning the airline to profitability by 2017.

AirAsia Japan revamp completed
Thursday, 1 October 2015
http://www.thestar.com.my/Business/B...ted/?style=biz

PETALING JAYA: Regional budget airline AirAsia Bhd has completed a shareholding reorganisation exercise of AirAsia Japan Co Ltd after the Japan Civil Aviation Bureau requested Octave Japan Infrastructure Fund I GK to convert its existing voting shares to non-voting shares.

In a stock exchange filing, the airline said 13% of voting shares has been issued to a new shareholder, FinTech Global Trading Inc.

The director of AirAsia Japan serves as the current representative director of FinTech.

AirAsia said the reorganisation would ensure that all shareholders’ voting interests would be streamlined.
