KUALA LUMPUR -- Southeast Asia is emerging as a key aircraft maintenance hub, and the chief executive officer of a relatively new player says his company is betting big to take advantage of expected further growth in demand.

Established in 2018, AirAsia-affiliated Asia Digital Engineering maintains, repairs and overhauls aircraft for the budget carrier and other customers. It, like the airline, falls under Capital A, which is led by Malaysian businessman and AirAsia founder Tony Fernandes.
