AirAsia Indonesia has opened its new headquarters building, located near Soekarno-Hatta International Airport.
Tangerang, as the new building is named, is home to more than 2.000 employees who were previously scattered in different offices throughout Jakarta. The building features a modern design and is equipped with facilities such as a gymnasium, music studio, employee lounge, mosque and a rooftop café.
AirAsia Indonesia is also committed to preserve the environment, so the building has been designed to be eco-friendly with a good waste management system. During daytime, the building relies on natural lighting which enables AirAsia Indonesia to significantly reduce electricity consumption.
AirAsia Group CEO, Tony Fernandes, was present to commemorate the opening of AirAsia Indonesia’s new office. “I am proud to be part of this historic moment, which marks a significant achievement and milestone for AirAsia Indonesia. From its humble beginnings with two old Boeing 737-300s, AirAsia Indonesia now operates a total of 30 brand new Airbus A320s and employs more than 2.000 employees. I have no doubt that our unconventional office and fun workspace will stimulate minds as well as inspire creative ideas.”
Standing on 6,497 m2 of land, the office is designed by prominent Indonesian architect, Dedato. The groundbreaking ceremony was held in April 2013, and the construction was completed nine months later. The six-floor office building, which is expected to be in full operation by February 2014, is also home to AirAsia ASEAN previously located at Equity Building, SCBD, South Jakarta.
AirAsia Indonesia CEO Dharmadi said the new office reflects AirAsia Indonesia’s fun personality and demonstrates the airline’s commitment to provide the best for its employees.
