UPM shows off creations on AisAsia

14th September, 2017

SEPANG: Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) yesterday unveiled a special aircraft livery with AirAsia, in celebration of the two institutions’ industry partnership.

The livery was designed by the Faculty of Design and Architecture of UPM and are now proudly displayed on AirAsia’s Airbus A320-200 aircraft with the registration number 9MAQD.

The idea of special UPM aircraft livery came about as a result of a discussion between UPM’s management led by Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Datin Paduka Dr. Aini Ideris and AirAsia Group Chief Executive Officer, Tan Sri Tony Fernandes in 2016.

Prior to the discussions, Tan Sri Tony was appointed by the Ministry of Higher Education as one of the chief executive officers in the CEO@Faculty Programme in UPM to share his experiences and knowledge in relation to the corporate world with the university.

The AirAsia chief shared his experiences with UPM residents in Serdang in April 2016, where he spontaneously announced UPM as AirAsia’s adopted University.

“We are very pleased to be the first University to have a special aircraft livery on an AirAsia aircraft, and we are very grateful and thankful to Tan Sri Tony Fernandes and the management of AirAsia for their generosity and bringing UPM branding to fly high in the blue skies.

“As UPM’s strategic partner, Tan Sri Tony had set aside the commercial aspects of this project but had stressed on the importance of knowledge and why institutions of higher education should be uplifted,” Prof. Datin Paduka Dr. Aini said.

“Through this initiative, AirAsia provided a platform for UPM in the field of design, creativity and art for high-impact projects. As a result of the success of the UPM livery on the AirAsia’s aircraft, UPM believes it is able to offer an expertise in the field of design,” she added.
