Positions: Pilots, cabin crew, operations control personnel, ramp, ground services, customer happiness, engineers
Locations: China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand and various locations in Asia and the Pacific.

We train our pilots, cabin crew, engineers and ground staff to operate Asia’s truly low-cost carrier.

We like to be simple, smart and efficient. Manage one aircraft type, have one class of seats. Fly point-to-point within 4 hours out of multiple hubs. Fly all day and turnaround fast. Sell directly. Buy centrally and outsource where we can. Minimise fees and cultivate long-term relationships.

We pioneered centralised training.

Regardless of where they’re from, our operations teams come together as one and train with each other in Kuala Lumpur to the same set of high-quality standards. We also run pilot cadet and engineering programmes in our major operation centres to nurture talent.

We’ve gone digital to make operations even more efficient and effective.

We’re the launch-customer for the CAE Rise training system, part of CAE’s ‘Next Generation Training System’ strategic initiative. This allows instructors  to objectively assess pilot competencies in real-time through powerful advanced data analytics.

We meet the highest airline global safety standards.

AirAsia Group is committed to achieving full certification of all our operators with the International Air Transport Association Operational Safety Audit (IOSA).

Malaysia, Indonesia and Philippines have successfully certified. Thailand and India are due to complete theirs in 2019.

We take in the best and most passionate people.

We’re a strong believer in workforce diversity and accept the best of the best regardless of their background or gender. AirAsia has operated all-female ground teams, as well as male ramp teams, since we were established in 2001. About 8% or nearly 190 of our pilots are female, among the highest in Asia.
