PERTH, 26 June 2017 - The safety of our guests and crew is of utmost importance to us. We are currently conducting an investigation into the cause of the incident together with our engine manufacturer Rolls-Royce. We are also cooperating fully with the local aviation authorities.
We would like to stress that AirAsia Group has always strictly followed the maintenance programme prescribed by our manufacturers. We have also complied with all regulations and requirements as set forth by every country where the airline operates, including Australia.
In Australia, AirAsia Group has also regularly passed safety and security audits conducted by the local aviation authorities.
