Andrew Voon and Simon Amos, , were on hand to receive the running vests from Roger Porferio Soria, AirAsia Station Head for Kota Kinabalu.

“We are very honored and happy that AirAsia has given us such strong support not only with the running vests and 50 runners but also with lucky draw tickets for the runners. These kinds of positive corporate leadership initiatives are reflective of the dynamic organisation that is Air Asia. We look forward to continued support from AirAsia and to working together to develop Kota Kinabalu and other points in Sabah as major sports tourism destinations,” said Andrew Voon, a Director of Championship Sports Events, organisers of the Borneo International Marathon.

Azran Osman-Rani, AirAsia X CEO, added, “It’s fantastic to be involved in an event that can bring people from all over the world to Kota Kinabalu, one of Malaysia’s best destinations. AirAsia will continue to promote marathon events held across its network of destinations as part of our commitment towards the development of sports and the promotion of active lifestyles.”

Fifty people from Kuala Lumpur, Kota Kinabalu, Thailand and Indonesia will be making up the airline’s team for BIM 2009, the airline’s biggest team participation in any sports event so far. The team runners will be running distances of from 10km to 21km to the brutal 42km full marathon.

AirAsia’s running club, established last year, has grown from strength to strength. Twenty members, or AirAsians as the airline likes to call them, participated in BIM 2008, and the team has since then participated in running events such as the Pacesetters 15km and Adidas King of the Road runs in KL. Pushing itself to the next level, the team recently participated in the Gold Coast Airport Marathon in July with 20 runners.

AirAsia, the world’s best low-cost airline, currently flies direct to Kota Kinabalu from international destinations including Singapore, Shenzen, Jakarta, Macau, Brunei, and Clark (Manila) as well as from within Malaysia from Kuala Lumpur, Johor Bahru, Kuching, Labuan, Miri, Penang, Sandakan, Sibu and Tawau.
