AirAsia triumphs for 14th straight year

I have invariably been impressed by AirAsia, as regular readers will be aware. I also recently took an airasia Superapp famil.

I was not surprised, then, to hear this week that AirAsia has been voted the world’s best low-cost airline at the Skytrax World Airline Awards 2023 for an unprecedented 14th consecutive time.

The awards results covered over 325 airlines with AirAsia emerging on top in its hotly contested category.

Over 100 nationalities of travellers participated in the online survey, with 20.23 million eligible entries counted in the results from September 2022 to May 2023, a period when AirAsia had steadily increased its network back to over 130 destinations.

In accepting the award at a ceremony at the Paris Air Show 2023 in France on Tuesday, Capital A CEO Tony Fernandes said: “We are immensely proud and grateful for this meaningful award given to us by the Skytrax organisers, voters, and the incredible supporters of AirAsia.

"Getting an award of excellence for 14 consecutive years is a remarkable achievement, one that fills our hearts with joy and humility. This is an extraordinary feat for any company in any industry, even more so for our proudly Asean brand.”

Edward Plaisted, CEO of Skytrax, said: “AirAsia is a survey passenger favourite and has delivered a remarkable degree of consistency year-on-year since the world's best low-cost airline category was introduced to the awards programme in 2010.

"The recognition from customers should be a great source of pride for the airline management and staff in what has been a difficult period as travel returns after the Covid pandemic.”

With 170 planes already back in service across the group, AirAsia expects to have all 204 reactivated by the end of August.

To celebrate AirAsia today launched sales fares from:
$149 from Perth to Bali or Jakarta
$234 from Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Gold Coast direct to Kuala Lumpur
$294 from Sydney direct to Bangkok
From NZ $134 from Auckland to Sydney
From NZD $479 from Auckland to Kuala Lumpur
