In a statement, AirAsia Group chief executive officer Tan Sri Tony Fernandes said that the building named “RedQ” is slated for completion in 2016.
“The new headquarters is designed with our AirAsia Allstars (employees) in mind and we are committed to provide the best for our employees who are the pillars of strength and the reason for our success.
“We want them to take ownership of the place, so much so that we asked AirAsia Allstars to name the new building.
“Our new building will be called RedQ, short for RedQuarters and the person who named it is an AirAsia X flight attendant,” he said adding that new global headquarters will better facilitate the low-cost carrier’s growth and future plans.
The AirAsia corporate building features a modern design and will be equipped with several facilities such as surau, meeting rooms, cafes, spacious cafeteria, flight crew lounge, gymnasium and a rooftop which doubles as a venue for corporate and in-house events.
The new building will be able to accommodate about 2,000 employees.
The airline’s new corporate building will cost RM140 million.
