AirAsia will defer delivery of eight A320s scheduled to arrive next year to January-August 2014 without penalty. It still plans to take 16 new aircraft next year. In a filing with Bursa Malaysia, the LCC said it has until Oct. 31 to defer eight more aircraft scheduled for delivery in 2011 to 2014. It said it expects "infrastructural constraints with the current airport facilities" that will not be remedied until a low-cost terminal is built at Kuala Lumpur (ATWOnline, March 13).
