Malaysian mogul Tony Fernandes, who transformed a floundering carrier into Asia’s biggest budget airline, faced his first major crisis after an AirAsia plane went missing last year.
AirAsia Flight QZ8501 with 162 people onboard went down in stormy weather on December 28, 2014, in the Java sea during what was supposed to be a short trip from the Indonesian city of Surabaya to Singapore.
Rescuers called off the hunt for the remaining passengers on March 17 this year, almost 3 months after Flight QZ8501 went down in stormy weather as it flew from the Indonesian city of Surabaya to Singapore, killing all 162 people on board.
