At the recent Skytrax World Airline Awards 2023 (Skytrax), held in London, AirAsia emerged at the top and was voted the World's Best Low-Cost Airline.

This marks AirAsia's 15th year in a row winning the award, which is no small feat.

From its humble beginnings in 2001, when Tony Fernandes and Kamarudin Meranun took over an ailing airline with just two aircraft and 200 staff, AirAsia has grown into a powerhouse. Today, it boasts more than 200 aircraft and 21,000 staff across multiple countries, including Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Cambodia.

This accolade not only underscores AirAsia's capability to uphold high standards and meet the evolving needs of travellers but also highlights its steadfast commitment to providing quality and affordable air travel.

In accepting the award, Capital A CEO Tony Fernandes expressed his gratitude and pride

"Skytrax champions global standards for airline quality and excellence, and we are thrilled to have risen to this benchmark for the 15th consecutive year.

"No other companies come to my mind in having achieved such a winning streak, and we are very proud of it. Our guests mean the world to us, and we are reinvigorated by the confidence they have shown by voting for us again.

"We look forward to continuing to serve many millions more this year alone, with high quality at the best cost," shared Tony. 

Dedicating this award to the AirAsia Allstars and loyal guests, Tony added that AirAsia is made up of thousands of dreamers, all working towards the single vision of ensuring that everybody can fly

“We acknowledge the challenges as we continue to rebuild the airline from the worst crisis in aviation history, but today we've emerged stronger. Travel is back, the sky's the limit, and we are hard at work to be even bigger and better than ever. See you on board soon!," he expressed.
