AirAsia says market remains attractive for more routes

AirAsiaASEAN market is not saturated, feels AirAsia Chief Executive Officer, Aireen Omar.

 
“There are potentials for more connectivity as well as frequencies,” she said.

 
AirAsia says the ASEAN market remains attractive for more routes and it is a matter of having the right platform and to create demand.

 
AirAsia flies to almost all the major cities in the 10-member nation bloc and some second- and third-tier cities in the region, she said.

 
“There are potentials for expansion in second- as well as third-tier cities but it all depends on how the open sky policy will turn out to be and the implementation of ASEAN Economic Community,” Aireen told Bernama recently.

 
Harmonisation of standards, for instance, licensing and safety, is among the key factors for the region’s aviation sector, which is now considered as one of the most regulated markets despite its potentials, Aireen said.
