Cheap AirAsia Flights
AirAsia is Asia’s primary no frills budget airlines, based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Its main hub is KL’s Kuala Lumpur International Airport, and it considers Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok, Soekarno-Hatta International Airport in Jakarta, Kota Kinablu International Airport in Sabah, Kuching International Airport in Sarawak and Senai International Airport near Singapore to be focus cities. AirAsia was the first Asian airline to move completely to electronic ticketing and unassigned seats, both hallmarks of budget airlines in an attempt to keep ticket prices low. AirAsia flies to almost 50 destinations in East Asia and South East Asia.
In addition to its main Malaysia-based airline, AirAsia also maintains the subsidiary airlines Thai AirAsia (based in Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport) and Indonesia AirAsia (based in Jakarta’s Soekarno-Hatta International Airport), as well as several companies associated with the AirAsia brand. While AirAsia has been expanding steadily since it began in the mid 1990s and is a popular choice for its low fares, some say it also often deals with flight delays.
AirAsia has been phasing out its use of the Boeing 737, and by mid 2007 will be operating a fleet entirely made up of Airbus A320 airplanes. AirAsia has been branching out its marketing efforts with ties to the Manchester United Football Club in England and the British Formula One racing team AT&T Williams.
