AirAsia X's Airbus A330 safe, says Tony

A week after the crash of the Air France Flight 447 in the Atlantic Ocean, many questions still remain unresolved regarding the Airbus A330 used on this route. Of course, I've mentioned earlier that the suspicion of the investigators are now centred on the equipment that possibly gave flawed airspeed readings.

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.
