With the support of the United States Department of State, AirAsia Foundation has organized training sessions across AirAsia hubs in the Philippines, Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia to raise awareness on human trafficking.

As a responsible airline, AirAsia is concerned about the situation in view of global statistics that 25% of trafficking victims originate from Asean. Human trafficking is a global security challenge which requires a global response the airline said. By linking up to a network of airlines, AirAsia intends to play its part to combat trafficking according to (3rd from right) Mun Ching Yap, executive director of AirAsia Foundation.
