AirAsia India 'Not Far' From A Potential IPO: Tony Fernandes

AirAsia India is a tie-up between Asia's biggest low-cost airline and Tata Sons


Malaysia-based carrier AirAsia Bhd's India unit is looking at a potential initial public offering (IPO), the group's chief executive, Tony Fernandes, said on Wednesday.

The company will seek approval at AirAsia India's next board meeting to pick a banker to start the preliminary process for the IPO, Mr Fernandes said on Twitter.

"Analysts (are) giving zero value to AirAsia India. Not far from 20 planes and a potential IPO," Mr Fernandes tweeted.

It's a "very valuable asset with huge growth potential", he said.
