Oracle OpenWorld Singapore—27 March, 2019
AirAsia announced that it is working with Oracle to centralise and streamline its finance operations by leveraging the market-leading Oracle Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Cloud. The deployment supports AirAsia’s growth plans and its vision to be the leading travel technology company in Asia.
AirAsia Group CEO Tony Fernandes said, “AirAsia has championed ASEAN connectivity since its inception in 2001. Over the past 18 years, we’ve proudly grown our network and launched new routes across Asia Pacific as we delivered on our promise to our guests. We are now writing the next chapter of our story, riding on our momentum as a business and a brand to transform AirAsia into more than just an airline. We are going to be the travel technology company for the region, and as part of this journey, we’ve set our sights on becoming an intelligent, connected enterprise.”
“AirAsia is at the forefront of innovation. They are a leading example of how technology can optimize costs while enhancing the customer experience,” said Mark Hurd, Oracle CEO. “Oracle ERP Cloud provides a foundation for AirAsia’s continued growth and will help strengthen their leadership in the Asean travel industry.”
