KUALA LUMPUR: Low-cost airline AirAsia group chief executive officer Tony Fernandes has been named Airline Chief Executive Officer of the Year for the third consecutive year by the Centre for Aviation (CAPA).

Commenting on the award, Fernandes said AirAsia had come a long way since he first won the accolade in 2004 to become a truly ASEAN airline.

With operations in Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, the Philippines, India, and soon, Japan, the airline now has more than 200 aircraft and 17,000 staff.

The award was presented to him at the 2016 CAPA Aviation Awards for Excellence in Amsterdam.

CAPA executive chairman Peter Harbison said the award was given to Tony to acknowledge his success in steering AirAsia to increased profitability and an improved outlook this year following an “extremely challenging” 2015.
