Air Asia acquires stake in Batavia Air; opening for CSeries?
Air Asia will acquire 77% of Batavia Air and the rest of the shares next year.
Air Asia is an A320/A330 operator. Batavia has a mix of A320s, A330s and Boeing 737 Classics. We can’t help but wonder if the flirtation at the Farnborough Air Show between Air Asia’s Tony Fernendes and Bombardier over the CSeries might be tied to Batavia.
