AirAsia Aviation Academy In Malaysia .

Tony Fernandes on his street fame: “People recognize me on the street because of this cap(AirAsia Cap) I’m wearing. If I took off the cap, I’m seen as just another Indian guy.” Being humble does not kill you. It doesn’t take the charisma away. In fact, it makes people respect you more. 
The signing ceremony was held in Kuala Lumpur on Monday 20th June 2011, witnessed by the Deputy Minister of Higher Education of Malaysia, Yang Berhormat Dato' Saifuddin bin Abdullah
