KUALA LUMPUR (Jun 22) -- Malaysia's AirAsia, Southeast Asia's largest discount carrier by fleet, said Thursday it is ordering 14 A320ceo planes from Airbus as part of its fleet expansion plan to meet rising demand from the region.

The latest order lifts the total number of A320 product line of aircraft to 592, AirAsia said in a statement. To date, AirAsia has taken delivery of 171 A320ceo and eight A320neo currently being flown by its units in Malaysia, India, Indonesia, Thailand and the Philippines.

"Demand is very strong in AirAsia's traditional countries, but now we have Indonesia, Philippines and India doing extremely well," AirAsia Chief Executive Tony Fernandes said. "The robust demand has led us to expanding our fleet."
