Any Idea what colour scheme VietJet Air Asia will use? Maybe orange or blue from the current regualr c/s they have for the others? They were going to go all blue for the failed Vina Air Asia (also in Vietnam).

I think the aircraft they choose is going to be Airbus A320.

Airasia up as earnings 'looking strong'
Published: 2010/03/17

AirAsia Bhd, Southeast Asia’s largest budget carrier, rose the most in almost a month after its chief executive officer said first-quarter earnings are “looking strong” and it doesn’t need to raise more capital.

The stock climbed 3.2 per cent to RM1.31 at 9:15 am local time in Kuala Lumpur trading, set for the steepest gain since Feb. 22. -- Bloomberg

AirAsia Miri-S’pore flight to be restored next week
by Georgette Tan March 18, 2010, Thursday

KUCHING: AirAsia has agreed to reinstate the Miri-Singapore flight by next week, Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Dr George Chan said yesterday.Dr Chan, who is also Tourism and Heritage Minister, disclosed this after a discussion with AirAsia chief executive officer Datuk Seri Tony Fernandez over the route, which was suspended earlier this month.

“People are used to the route. Employees of oil companies are used to travelling on that flight,” he said during a press conference at Kuching International Airport VIP lounge upon his return from Kuala Lumpur.

“I promised Fernandez that we will do our part in promoting Sarawak to Singaporeans,” he said.

Dr Chan added that he would be embarking on a roadshow to promote Sarawak in Singapore either end of this month or early April.

“On my part, I want to sell Sarawak to Singaporeans and get more people to come.

“People should know about the good tourism products available in Sarawak. We must work on a win-win situation. Tour operators can also help by getting as many people as possible to visit,” he added.

The status of other suspended international routes, like the Kuching-Jakarta flight, remains unchanged.

Dr Chan said Fernandez asked him to speak to Malaysia Airport Holdings Berhad (MAB) about offering the low-cost carrier a lower rate for airport charges.

“I hope MAB will be able to help us there, until we build up a volume where the low-cost carrier can absorb a higher cost.”

He said Sarawak tourism was behind when compared to Sabah, Penang and Melaka, and appealed for MAB to reconsider its charges.

AirAsia expects 27m passengers this year
By Jeeva Arulampalam Published: 2010/03/20

LOW-COST carrier (LCC) AirAsia Group (5099) expects to carry some 27 million passengers this year, up from the 24 million passengers achieved last year.

AirAsia group chief executive officer Datuk Seri Tony Fernandes said AirAsia, together with its long-haul affiliate, AirAsia X will be able to achieve 27 million passengers as load factors remain strong and signs of economic recovery are underway.

"We will use the new plane deliveries this year to continue driving our initiative of becoming a full-fledged Asean carrier this year," Fernandes told reporters at an AirAsia event in Sepang, Selangor, yesterday.

Despite AirAsia deferring the delivery of eight new A320s this year, it will still be taking in 16 new A320s, with most planes being utilised by its associates, Thai AirAsia and Indonesia AirAsia.
Fernandes also said that flights to Thailand are continuing as per normal with healthy load factors despite the current political turbulence in Bangkok.

"We've not cancelled any of our flights. I think people have become used to (the ongoing political disputes) there," he said.

AirAsia is also working on increasing its ancillary revenue base by promoting local events such as upcoming concerts by artists Zee Avi and Lionel Richie, as well as international concerts.

Meanwhile, AirAsia paid tribute yesterday to two individuals who have contributed to the airline's growth and propagated the AirAsia AllStar culture by unveiling two aircraft with special liveries bearing images of both individuals.

Both brand new Airbus A320 planes bear images of the former AirAsia chairman Datuk Pahamin Ab. Rajab and AirAsia chief operating officer Bo Lingam's imagery.

"The aircraft with the special liveries shows our gratitude to their contributions in growing the airline from a fledgling Malaysian LCC to the Asean airline that it is now," said Fernandes before unveiling the planes in Sepang.

Both Pahamin and Bo joined AirAsia in 2001 and were instrumental in the development of the low-cost carrier into an internationally recognised brand.

KUALA LUMPUR, March 28 (BERNAMA) -- Malaysia Airlines (MAS) has partnered with Sepang International Circuit (SIC) in conjunction with the 2010 Petronas Malaysian Grand Prix on April 2-4.

To enhance the F1 experience and build up excitement ahead of the race, Malaysia Airlines is giving away over 50 grandstand tickets and over 100 Grand Prix Concert tickets.

The concert will feature Fatboy Slim and Wyclef Jean and will take place at the Sepang International Circuit Helipad at 7pm, an hour after the race. Backstage passes to meet the international superstars are also up for grabs.

In a statement on Sunday, MAS said that these free tickets and passes could be obtained through various activities organised for Malaysia Airlines Travel Facebook fans as well as registered users on MAStraveller.com.

In addition, there will also be a Grand Prize comprising air tickets to Asean destinations.

"We're delighted to be associated with SIC as the F1 is a very high-profile sporting event with the 2nd highest audience in the world. This complements our efforts in sports tourism as an event like this attracts fans from all over the world into Malaysia," MAS senior general manager sales & marketing, Datuk Bernard Francis said in the statement.

To make it more attractive, MAS' travel arm, MASholidays, was also offering affordable ground packages starting from RM253 per person for 3D/2N inclusive of accommodation, transfers and daily breakfast, he added.

Francis said that aside from ticket giveaways, MAS was also offering 15 per cent discount on F1 tickets for those who can present either

He said details on the prizes could be checked at MAStraveller.com and MAS' Travel Facebook page.

MAS places US$3.6b order with Airbus
Published: 2010/03/31

MALAYSIA Airlines placed a firm order on Wednesday for 15 A330-300 widebodied aircraft and two A330-200F freighters, at a list price of about US$3.6 billion.

The cost, however, does not include options for another 10 A330-300 aircraft and two A330-200F freighters.

Managing Director cum Chief Executive Officer Tengku Datuk Azmil Zahruddin said the price of each aircraft is about US$170 million and the exercise would be financed through proceeds from a rights issue as well as additional debt funding.

The national carrier had under RM3 billion in cash as at December 2009 and its gearing level was at 1.1 times.


"With new aircraft coming in, we can use it for growth, if the economy is doing well.Otherwise, we will do the necessary replacement of aircraft.

"It depends on where we are, at that point in time," he told reporters after signing the sales and purchase agreement with Airbus on the sidelines of Invest Malaysia 2010 in Kuala Lumpur Wednesday.

Azmil said the current Malaysia Airlines fleet is at an average of about 11-12 years old this is still considered as being relatively young.

"By 2015, we want to ensure we have a younger fleet and the average age would be down to just five years," he explained.

According to Azmil, on the cargo side, the new freighters would enable Malaysia Airlines to serve better the intra-Asia route and offer direct services to Europe from India and Bangladesh.

In preparation for adding capacity with the availability of new aircraft, Malaysia Airlines has been adding new frequencies starting March 28, and is expected to announce new destinations from this second quarter.

While delivery of the passenger aircraft will begin in the first half of 2011, the first freighter is likely to join the MASkargo fleet in September of the year.

All deliveries are expected to be completed by 2016.

Meanwhile, Malaysia Airlines Chief Financial Officer Mohd Azha bin Abdul Jalil said the Request For Proposals (RFP) for financing, would likely be finalised by April.

"We have received more than 20 proposals, so it will take quite a while to evaluate all. The proposals are from overseas as well as locally," he said.

They should use Tehran as Middle East base instead of Abu Dhabi.

Tehran is home to much bigger population and there's far higher % of adventure/ young travellers than in Abu Dhabi.
