AirAsia Group, including medium haul affiliate airlines AirAsia X and Thai AirAsia X have been once again confirmed as one of the safest low cost carriers in the world for 2024 by the aviation experts at AirlineRatings.com. Factors used to decide the top 20 safest low cost airlines include incident records, fleet age, results of audits conducted by the governing body of aviation - The International Civil Aviation Organisation, as well as EU banned lists. This follows the award for AirAsia Group as the top low cost carrier in Asia by AirlineRatings.com in May 2023. 

Bo Lingam, Group CEO of AirAsia Aviation Group, commented: “Safety is always the number one priority affecting every airline’s brand and reputation and we are thrilled to once again be acknowledged as being amongst the best in the world for operational integrity.We continue to invest heavily in our safety management systems including ongoing certification via regular International Operational Safety Audits by IATA across the airline Group, as the global benchmark for upholding the highest safety standards at all times.”

Benyamin Ismail, CEO of AirAsia X, said: “AirAsia X has been IOSA accredited since 2013 and we continue to remain dedicated to providing our guests with the very best in terms of safe, affordable and reliable air travel at all times for medium-haul air travel across Asia and beyond. I am truly thankful for my team’s support as we return to the skies stronger than ever across all areas including safety. I also wish to thank the team at AirlineRatings.com for their continued support of AirAsia X.” 

Thai AirAsia X, sister medium-haul airline to AirAsia X which has been IOSA accredited since 2018,  also confirms its steadfast commitment to always putting safety first and is proud to achieve this acknowledgement. 

Tassapon Bijleveld, CEO of Thai AirAsia X, stated: “Safety is something that can never be compromised and underpins all that we do. We are sincerely honoured with this recognition for both our short and medium-haul airlines which continue to deliver the best value and choice both within Thailand and to our popular international destinations like Japan and Australia. Thai AirAsia X is extremely proud of this recognition that highlights the dedication and operational performance of our Allstars. This recognition is a testament to the world-class quality and standards that everyone in the team takes pride in and will drive us to further improve our service, so that we may continue to deliver the safe, impressive and cost-efficient experience that our customers have always trusted us for.”
