In this context, Tan Sri Tony has announced UPM as AirAsia's Official University places importance on knowledge and educational institutions that deserve appropriate recognition over commercial aspects.

The university community expresses the highest appreciation and gratitude to YBhg. Tan Sri Tony Fernandes and AirAsia management which have made it possible for UPM’s image to be up in the air, emblazoned on the sleek body of AirAsia A320. UPM also wishes to thank the Honourable Minister of Higher Education, YBhg. Dato' Seri Idris Jusoh for his commitment and support, and in sparking off the CEO@Faculty programme.
