Flying High: My Story
What a life. Tony Fernandes has accomplished amazing things - and who's to say what he can go on to achieve? (Sir Richard Branson)
From the Inside Flap
As a boy, Tony Fernandes wanted to be a pilot, a racing driver or a footballer. By 2011 he'd gone one better: building his own airline, buying a formula one team, and becoming Chairman of Queens Park Rangers.
Born and raised in Malaysia, Fernandes was sent to boarding school in England aged twelve where he excelled in sports and was educated in the importance of camaraderie. On leaving school, Fernandes travelled America and Australia, learning valuable lessons about the power of positivity and inclusivity that would go on to shape his open approach to business.
After studying as an accountant and spending his early career at Virgin Communications and Warner Music, Fernandes acquired AirAsia, a failing airline and transformed it into Asia's first budget air carrier. Fernandes democratized air travel in Asia and created a multi-billion-dollar company in the process. Fulfilling one of his childhood dreams, Tony set out to achieve another and helped QPR reach the Premier League after a 15-year absence from the top flight.
In Flying High, Fernandes shares his journey and life lessons, from key business principles and turning points to his response to the Flight 8501 tragedy.
Flying High is the memoir of an exceptional business leader and an inspiring story that demonstrates you can achieve anything if you dare to dream.See all Product description
