Locally, our AirAsia X uses the Airbus A330 on its long-haul budget routes. Today, I received this reassuring message from AirAsia boss Tony Fernandes to allay fears of people flying with them. Way to go, Tony (or should I say, way to fly, Tony)!
hi Quah, our A330s are well maintained and meet all the requirements of the various airworthiness authorities. the a330 is a very matured aircraft with hundreds flying daily throughout the world providing a safe and efficient service. we are confident and we have had no concerns expressed by passengers or our crew about the safety of our aircraft. i hope this helps allay your concerns too. feel free to ask any questions. tony.
