FEATURE-Airasia's Fernandes spreads his wings
Tue Jul 3, 2007 12:02am ET
By Hsu Chuang Khoo
Reuters


KUALA LUMPUR, July 3 (Reuters) - - AirAsia chief Tony Fernandes sees himself as Asia's answer to Virgin Group Chairman Richard Branson or easyJet founder Stelios Haji-Ioannou. But he has a problem: how to fund his grand plans.

Since taking Asia's biggest low-cost airline public and to profit in just six years, Fernandes, like Stelios and Branson, has leveraged his brand and fame to branch into new businesses, from budget hotels to online financial services and games.

But most of the former record industry executive's $230 million-plus wealth is trapped in ringgit-denominated stock of AirAsia -- stock that no one outside Malaysia wants, because the ringgit isn't traded overseas.

And unlike Stelios, who funded his expansion into businesses like Internet cafes, cars and cinemas with shares of his European no-frills airline easyJet (EZJ.L: Quote, Profile , Research) when it went into orbit after going public, Fernandes can't do the same with AirAsia.

Malaysia says the ringgit will not be traded offshore anytime soon, though analysts say the policy deters foreign funds from investing in the country.

Even with AirAsia shares underperforming the broader Malaysian market this year despite a six-fold rise in quarterly profit, Fernandes says he isn't fazed.

"I don't see that as a problem," said the 43-year-old businessman in an interview with Reuters. Continued...

London Stansted - Malaysia route planned

London Stansted Airport could secure a low-cost link to Malaysia through new budget long haul airline AirAsia, which is planning a global launch in September, the Business magazine reports. In addition to routes to Europe, it also plans routes Australia and China, which could be reached via the Malaysian flights.

AirAsia is in talks with a number of airports, including Stansted and Manchester in the UK, with at least one route to the UK expected either later this year or early in 2008. A spokesman for BAA Stansted said the airport has been in discussions for six months with AirAsia and other long haul airlines in Asia, but has received no firm indications on impending routes as yet.

The airline placed a $2.25 billion (£1.1bn) order at the recent Paris Air Show with European plane manufacturer Airbus to buy a new fleet of A330-300 aircraft. It is positioning itself as 'the lowest cost long haul carrier on the planet,' with just one class of seating, fast turnaround times and passengers paying for food and entertainment.

It is reported that the lowest introductory fare for a return Kuala Lumpur-UK flight would be $20 and the average fare on the route likely to be around $300, excluding taxes.

AirAsia CEO keeps mum on Branson buying FAX stake

July 11 2007

AVIATION tycoon Datuk Tony Fernandes is keeping mum on speculation that British billionaire Richard Branson of Virgin Group may take up a 20 per cent stake in AirAsia’s long-haul budget airline.

“Wait and see. I think AirAsia has always surprised everyone. So, just wait and see,” he said today when asked to comment on the recent news report quoting sources.

Fernandes, who is chief executive officer of AirAsia Bhd, has a 50 per cent stake in Fly Asian Xpress (FAX) while his deputy, Kamarudin Meranum, holds the remaining shares.

FAX will operate the long-haul service.

According to the report, Branson will take up a 20 per cent stake in FAX.

Fernandes, however, said that there could be a few announcements before FAX starts operations in September this year.

“It is going to surprise a few people,” he told reporters after the launch of the Citibank-AirAsia co-branded credit card.

But he did not say if the announcements concerned new shareholders.

Pressed further if he was in talks with Branson, the founder of Virgin Group, he quipped: “Sure, I talk to him. We are friends. We talk.” — Bernama
