Air Asia Safety Record & Review

From all reports, Air Asia appear to have a very good safety record. The only major Air Asia safety incident i have found is a plane skidding off the runway at Kota Kinabalu International Airport in Malaysia, with 2 passengers suffering minor injuries.

Apart from that, Air Asia thus far appears to be one of the leading airlines in incident and accident free flying in Asia. If you know of a documented incident, please feel free to let us know.

  1. Safety is a priority, but what about security?

    I was traveling from KL-Krabi on 20th Dec 2010. My checked-in bag that was locked was tampered, TSR lock lost, zipper damaged by some hardware. There are so many similar incidents reported and friends/family also experienced slashed bags, things stolen at check points within the LCCT airport. What is AA doing about it?

    Once an airport security is compromised, theft will an issue, but so is smuggling. Remember this is a region where smuggling of narcotics and some contraband items carry a mandatory death sentence!

    I urge AA to look into this security issue today, even if its not squarely within its management purview (maybe its MAHB).. I trust AA and Dato Seri' Tony's team in delivering results.

    Now everyone can fly indeed, but lets make it safe and secure.

  2. Flying with a private jet is not as expensive as people thought, as long as they know how to arrange their budget. Private jet charters is not for up-level anymore since the need of the industry is growing up from time to time.
