AirAsia Group, the largest low-cost carrier in Asia, operates an all-Airbus fleet, currently totaling 141 aircraft. Airbus President and CEO Fabrice Bregier called AirAsia "one of the world's fastest growing airlines."
 
The delivery milestone comes following the recent announcement by Airbus parent company EADS would be changing its name to the Airbus Group, to reflect the success of its airframe producing brand.
