Changi's T4 a 'model' for airports: AirAsia chief

Changi's T4 a 'model' for airports: AirAsia chief

By his own admission, Mr Tony Fernandes is never nice to airports. Yet, AirAsia's flamboyant and tough-talking boss was full of praise for Changi's latest terminal when he met journalists at the airport's Crowne Plaza Hotel yesterday. Holding up the new Terminal 4 as the "model airport of the future" for budget carriers, he said all other airports, and especially Kuala Lumpur International Airport, should learn from Changi. "In my 16 years (in the budget airline business), I have never praised any airport, so this is a big step for me and a huge endorsement for Changi," he said. Even his staff are raving about T4, he quipped. "Changi should be applauded for listening to its airlines," Mr Fernandes added, lamenting that not many do so. t4-shell.png Related Story Changi Airport's Terminal 4: Take a 360-degree tour of the new 'self-service' T4 At the new T4, where the AirAsia...
