AirAsia Group ‘working hard’ on Kuala Lumpur-Adelaide service: CEO

    AirAsia Group CEO Tony Fernandes, via his personal LinkedIn account, stated (16-Aug-2018) the group is “working hard” to bring LCC operations to Kuala Lumpur-Adelaide service, noting Adelaide has “so much potential” as one of Australia‘s next major cities. Mr Fernandes said however it is “unreasonable” to expect AirAsia to pay “above average” airport charges while Adelaide Airport remains congested. Mr Fernandes also commented that “fantastic things happen” when airports and carriers have a “strong relationship founded on a vision to build an LCC market”. Mr Fernandes said the “strong spending power” of its passengers will create a “vibrant” market at Adelaide Airport and further boost ancillary revenue
