With the unmistakable tagline, “Now Everyone Can Fly”, AirAsia has made ﬂying aﬀordable for more than 40 million guests. Against All Odds
In 2001, Dato’ Tony Fernandes along with Dato’ Pahamin Ab. Rajab (Chairman, AirAsia), Dato’ Kamarudin bin Meranun (Deputy Group Chief Executive Oﬃcer, AirAsia) and Abdul Aziz bin Abu Bakar (Director, AirAsia) formed a partnership to set up Tune Air Sdn Bhd and bought AirAsia for a token sum of RM1.00. With the help of Conor Mc Carthy (Director, AirAsia; Director, former Director of Tune Air Sdn Bhd and former Director of Group Operations, Ryanair), AirAsia was remodeled into a low cost carrier and by January 2002, their vision to make air travel more aﬀordable for Malaysians took ﬂight.
