AirAsia chief likely to meet Aviation Minister next week

Mumbai: With his proposed budget airline still awaiting nod from the Civil Aviation Ministry, AirAsia group chief executive Tony Fernandes may call on Union Minister Ajit Singh next week when he visits the country.  
AirAsia India can seek flying licence only after it gets the go-ahead from the Union Home and Aviation Ministries.
     "I am coming to India next week-end," Mr Fernandes told PTI in a text message.    
This will be Mr Fernandes's first visit after his company joined hands with the Tata Group and Arun Bhatia of Telestra TradePlace to launch a low-cost airline in a 49:30:21 partnership.
