AirAsia takes 100th A320

written by | May 25, 2012
AirAsia's Tony Fernandes with Airbus COO-customers John Leahy, CEO Tom Enders, and EADS CEO Louis Gallois.

Low cost airline AirAsia took delivery of its 100th A320 from Airbus in Toulouse on May 25, with the aircraft named in honour of former Airbus CEO and outgoing EADS CEO Louis Gallois.

“Air Asia could not have reached this point in our amazing story without the tremendous support we’ve received from Airbus, going back to the start of our relationship in 2004,” Fernandes told media.  “No airline could have grown like ours without the support of such a great partner as Airbus, who has seen us through both the good and bad times.”

AirAsia has 375 A320/A320neos on order, which when delivered will make it the largest operator of Airbus aircraft in the world.
