AirAsia Group Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Tan Sri Tony Fernandes, said he met Russian Federation Council Chairman, Valentina Matvienko, at an interactive meeting and business luncheon here.

In his Twitter account, the aviation tycoon said: “Now meeting Russia Number 2 strong lady. #AirasiaX will be flying to Russia soon.”

On the timeline, Fernandes, in a short text message, replied: “Wait and see”.  


The meeting today was organised by Asian Strategy & Leadership Institute (ASLI), Russian Embassy in Malaysia and Business Council For Cooperation with Malaysia.

Also present were Second International Trade and Industry Datuk Seri Ong Ka Chuan, ASLI CEO Tan Sri Dr Michael Yeoh and Business Council for Cooperation with Malaysia Chairman Dr Vladimir Sautov.

AirAsia X seems to be going all out adding new destinations this year, in line with its turnaround plan.

Earlier this year, AirAsia X CEO, Benyamin Ismail, was reported as saying the airline was also looking at restoring flights to Tehran given that Iran would offer a huge potential, while adding that London and Paris remained under its radar.

As at 3pm, AirAsia and AirAsia X were the top two most-actively trade stocks on Bursa Malaysia.

AirAsia rose seven sen to RM1.78 with 44.98 million shares traded and AirAsia X gained half-a-sen to 30 sen with 34.56 million shares transacted.
