KUALA LUMPUR -- Malaysia's AirAsia Group says it will co-found a tech-training facility with Silicon Valley giant Google, as Southeast Asia's biggest budget carrier by fleet continues its push to become a technology-led company.

AirAsia Group President Aireen Omar told the Nikkei Asian Review that fresh tech talent would play a vital role in developing new businesses within the group and help fulfill plans by Group CEO Tony Fernandes to remake AirAsia into a digital era disrupter.
