When AirAsia was established back then in the year 2001, it was a blessed for not so rich and not so poor people like me. I worked harder to earn my first flight ticket abroad and go places as a treat to my hard work. Since it started AirAsia continues to soar high.
Despite the success, Air Asia never forget to give back to the community which shown since this year is the 3rd year commitment to fighting cancer.
