Born in April 1964 to Indian parents but was raised in Malacca, Malaysia. From a young boy who always follows his mother who sold Tupperware is now the man behind the success of a big airline, AirAsia. He manages to turn a failing government-linked commercial airline, into a highly successful budget airline public-listed company. At present, he is one of the richest men in Malaysia according to Forbes.
As a boy, Tony Fernandes wanted to be a pilot, a footballer or a racing driver. By 2011 he’d gone one better: founding his own airline and his own formula one team, and becoming Chairman of Queens Park Rangers, helping them reach the Premier League again after a 15-year absence from the top flight.
Flying High is the memoir of an exceptional business leader; the man who created Asia’s first budget airline, democratizing air travel in Asia and building AirAsia into a multi-billion-dollar company in the process.
Published as Tony returns as the face of the second series of Apprentice Asia, this inspiring personal story will be a major global publishing event.
