Air Asia Plane Fleet Quality

Air Asia began a process of renewal of its aircraft fleet in 2006, changing from their previous preference for Boeing 737-300's, to the Airbus A320-200.

As at 2009, the Air Asia Fleet (including Air Asia X) consists of 76 aircraft, which is made up of 58 Airbus A320-200, 17 Boeing 737-300, 3 Airbus A3330-300 and 1 Airbus A340-300. The latter two are used respectively on the Australian and London routes.

Air Asia also have a large order placed with Airbus to increase their fleet substantially, for both the short haul and long haul routes.

Air Asia will soon lay claim to having one of the youngest aircraft fleets in the world.

  1. I find it disconcerting that Air Asia uses planes with relatively comfortable seats for short flights and as soon as you get on a long haul flight, the seats are probably the most uncomfortable seats on any airline in the world. You need to factor in the price of a visit to a chiropractor after a long haul journey. The seats do not recline and I hope that this has been fixed otherwise evrything is as good as what you pay for.

  2. This is great that they are increasing their fleet substantially. With this it would be more convenient for the customers having their flights.

  3. Rocinante was of more value for a true traveller than a jet plane. Jet planes were for business men.
