AirAsia, a truly Asean airline, has been actively supporting Asean integration. It offers affordable air travel across an extensive network to connect the communities of Asean. AirAsia has also been a private sector supporter of key regional initiatives such as ASEAN Open Skies and ASEAN Economic Community.
ASEAN was formed in 8th of August 1967 by Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore and Thailand to promote political and economic cooperation and regional stability. Brunei joined in 1984 shortly after its independence from the United Kingdom and Vietnam became its seventh member in 1995. Laos and Burma were admitted into full membership in July 1997 as ASEAN celebrated its 30th anniversary, followed by Cambodia in 1999. (wol/airasia/data1)
