AirAsia hits the ground running

07 July 2009

AirAsia’s 20-strong team of runners has competed in their first Gold Coast Airport Marathon event.

Staff from the airline’s engineering department, cabin crew, guest services and corporate culture teams joined AirAsia X ceo Azran Osman-Rani and over 23,000 runners in yesterday’s event in perfect weather on the Gold Coast.

Mr Osman-Rani said AirAsia’s participation in the marathon and the few days spent on the Coast would provide staff with a great experience of one of their most popular destinations.

“The Gold Coast was our first Australian hub and has performed consistently well over the past few years,” he said. “Some of our staff don’t have the opportunity to sample the lifestyle and culture of the places we are promoting to the Asian market and we hope that by participating in the Gold Coast Marathon, our staff will experience things first hand, have a unique experience and enjoy themselves.”
