Asia Airlines

Hey fellow adventurers! I did some research for what Malaysia is known for, and one of the things that came up the most was AirAsia. Wikipedia describes it as a “low-cost airline headquartered near Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It is the largest airline in Malaysia by fleet size and destinations.” It has been praised on several blogs as the cheapest way to travel around Asia. Wikipedia continues to explain:

“AirAsia operates with the world’s lowest unit cost of US$0.023 per available seat kilometre (ASK)* and a passenger breakeven load factor of 52%. It has hedged 100% of its fuel requirements for the next three years, achieves an aircraft turnaround time of 25 minutes, has a crew productivity level that is better than that of Malaysia Airlines and has an average aircraft utilization rate of 13 hours a day. In 2007, The New York Times described the airline as a “pioneer” of low-cost travel in Asia. AirAsia is the sponsor of Malaysia national football team, Singapore national football team and Queens Park Rangers. AirAsia is also a former sponsor of Manchester United and Asia Red Tour.

AirAsia has consistently been named as the world’s best low cost carrier for 9 years in a row in international travel and airline awards, including the latest award for 2017.”

Though keep in mind, it doesn’t look like all AirAsia’s are the same. At least, it looks like AirAsia Indonesia has been under a lot of heat:
