Low-cost airline Indonesia AirAsia plans to conduct an initial public offering (IPO) on the Indonesia Stock Exchange in late-2017. This IPO plan has been agreed upon by the management and shareholders of the company. AirAsia Chief Executive Officer Tony Fernandes said there are two main reasons why Indonesia AirAsia would like to become a listed company: (1) to improve transparency and corporate management, and (2) to allow Indonesian investors to join in on Indonesia AirAsia's profit and business growth.

Budget airline Indonesia AirAsia, the local unit of Malaysia's AirAsia and one of the world's leading low-cost carriers, seeks to collect up to USD $250 million over the next two years through an initial public offering (IPO) on the Indonesia Stock Exchange (IDX) as well as the issuance of convertible bonds. The company aims to raise around USD $110 million worth of convertible bonds (which will have a low coupon rate with a 2-year maturity), while the IPO (which is scheduled for 2017) is expected to generate about USD $150 million.
One of the world’s largest budget carriers, Malaysia-based AirAsia Group, plans to list its Indonesian unit - Indonesia AirAsia - on the Indonesia Stock Exchange in mid-2016. AirAsia Group Chief Tony Fernandes said that the group is eager to expand its presence in Indonesia, one of the world’s fastest growing regions in terms of air passengers, and aims to raise USD $300 million through this initial public offering (IPO). The fatal crash of Indonesia AirAsia flight QZ8501 in the Java Sea in December 2014 did not dim the group’s ambitions.
Indonesian authorities said that divers have located the black box recorders of Indonesia AirAsia Flight QZ8501 on Sunday (11/01). Ships involved in the search operation picked up strong ping signals less than 0.6 miles from the location where the tail of the AirAsia aircraft was found. However, divers have not been able yet to collect the black box (which contains crucial flight data) due to the strong undercurrent. Moreover, the black box is stuck under debris at about 30 to 35 meters below sea level.
On 11 January 2015, Indonesia Investments released the latest edition of its newsletter.

Although Indonesian rescuers are still searching for the black boxes, casualties and other remains of Indonesia AirAsia Flight QZ8501 that crashed tragically in the Java Sea on 28 December 2014 en route from Surabaya (East Java) to Singapore, some preliminary findings have already been presented to the media. These findings do not involve the accident itself but rather involve massive violations that were exposed as a consequence of the AirAsia tragedy. Apparently, 61 flights (involving five Indonesian airlines) lack the necessary permits.
Indonesia has suspended several officials in connection to the AirAsia Flight QZ8501 disaster after preliminary results of the investigation indicate that the AirAsia airplane was not authorized to fly on Sundays (hence detecting a flight schedule violation). The AirAsia plane went down in the Java Sea on Sunday 28 December 2014, en route from Surabaya (East Java) to Singapore, presumably killing all 162 people on board. Authorities have barred the airline from flying this route until the investigation is over.
On Sunday 28 December 2014 an Indonesia AirAsia flight lost contact with Indonesian air traffic control en route from Surabaya (East Java) to Singapore.

The Airbus A320-200 was supposed to land in Singapore at 08:30 am Singapore time.
