AirAsia opens new HQ in Jakarta
Jakarta, December 29, 2013
AirAsia Indonesia has opened its new headquarters in Jakarta, near the Soekarno-Hatta International Airport.
The building will house more than 2,000 employees, who were previously scattered in different office across Jakarta, said the carrier in a statement.
It features an eco-friendly design with a good waste management system, with the building relying on natural lighting during the day.
The building is also equipped with facilities such as a gymnasium, music studio, employee lounge, mosque and a rooftop café, said the statement.
Speaking at the opening, group CEO Tony Fernandes said: “I am proud to be part of this historic moment, which marks a significant achievement and milestone for AirAsia Indonesia.”
“From its humble beginnings with two old Boeing 737-300s, AirAsia Indonesia now operates a total of 30 brand new Airbus A320 and employs more than 2,000 employees. I have no doubt that our unconventional office and fun workspace will stimulate minds as well as inspire creative ideas,” he stated.
The office, which was completed this month, will be in full operation by February, he added.
AirAsia Indonesia CEO Dharmadi said the new office reflects the carrier's fun personality and demonstrates the airline’s commitment to provide the best for its employees. - TradeArabia News Service
