AirAsia’s CEO Tony Fernandes talks about how he sealed the deal at Bombay House
New Delhi: In early 2011, AirAsia’s Tony Fernandes was waiting to meet officials in the civil aviation ministry in New Delhi for talks on starting flights to India from Kuala Lumpur. On the wall of the room he was waiting in was a poster of J.R.D. Tata, founder of Air India. He says he sent a text to Tata group chief Ratan Tata: “This is a sign, let’s do it." Fernandes had met J.R.D. Tata’s successor as Tata group chief at a Formula 1 race in 2005.
