AirAsia and its cousin airlines, AirAsia X, Thai AirAsia and Indonesia AirAsia, are low-cost carriers providing service to more than 60 destinations in approximately 18 countries throughout Asia, Europe, and Australia. Headquartered in Selangor, Malaysia near the Kuala Lumpur International Airport, its primary hub, it also operates three other Malaysian hubs at Kota Kinabalu International Airport, Penang International Airport, and Kuching International Airport.
AirAsia was formed in 2001, and quickly became a pioneer of low-cost service in Asia, flying modern Airbus A320s. Its low-cost airfares, and more importantly its extremely low operating costs, have broken travel norms, giving many more people in the region the opportunity to fly. AirAsia was named the World's Best Low-Cost Airline and the Best Low-Cost Airline - Asia at the 2011 Skytrax awards.
AirAsia X is the long-haul carrier formed in 2007, and it flies Airbus A330s and A340s.
