11th Oct 2017

Malaysian budget airline AirAsia Berhad received on Tuesday another accolade as it was named as Malaysia’s Best Company for Investor Relations (IR) at the Malaysia Investor Relations Association (MIRA) Awards 2017.

The award ceremony was held at the Sime Darby Convention Centre in Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia. On behalf of the airline, Chief Executive Officer Aireen Omar received the award from the Bursa Malaysia Chief Executive Officer Tajuddin Atan.

Upon receiving the award, Omar said:

Thank you to the Malaysian Investor Relations Association for the award. This is the result of the solid teamwork that we have fostered within AirAsia.

She also added that the company will continue to engage positively with its investors, with whom it has been always transparent.

This wasn’t the only prize AirAsia went home with, as the carrier also won the award for the Best IR Website. This award was received by AirAsia’s Group Head of Corporate Development, Elina Effendi. She previously led AirAsia’s IR department.

Omar added that winning the Best IR Website award is also important for the company, as its goal is to become a truly digital airline in the future.

She added:

We will also continue to strive towards building value and maximizing returns to our shareholders, and push the boundaries in all aspects of AirAsia.

AirAsia also won the award for the Best CFO for IR, which was presented to the airline’s Chief Financial Officer How Kim Lian.

How said:

I am humbled by this recognition from the investment community. It is an honour to be nominated for this category, and a pleasant surprise to win this award. Well done AirAsia and great job to the team. A truly Allstars spirit and achievement.

Finally, AirAsia’s long-haul, low-cost affiliate AirAsia X also went home with an award, having won one for the Best Investor Relations Professional (Mid Cap). This award went to Hanif Idrose Mohamed, Investor Relations Manager at AirAsia X.

He said:

It’s an honour for me to receive this award. We totally didn’t expect to win this award. It shows that AirAsia has a strong team. The hard work is not solely mine but as One AirAsia IR team which embodies its vision to provide consistent communication to our stakeholders.
