AirAsia’s chief executive officer, Aireen Omar commented, “When AirAsia was started, the aim was to tighten the bonds that make us all one nation, one people.
We knew it was difficult and costly for East Malaysians to travel to Semenanjung and vice versa, and it was our mission to help in the process of national integration.
