AirAsia has signed a 10-year deal with a global Internet content and application delivery company to boost its online performance and reliability.

The low-cost carrier signed the deal with Akamai Technologies Inc under the company’s first 10-year agreement with an airline.

In a statement yesterday, AirAsia said its website would now be powered by Akamai’s Dynamic Site Acceleration solutions which delivers faster website performance.

AirAsia Bhd group chief executive officer Datuk Seri Tony Fernandes said their partnership with Akamai would enable them to provide passengers with the best online performance and enhance their market share.

“AirAsia’s website enjoys an average of one million unique visitors a month.

“With our promotional deals and free-seat regional campaigns, the number of hits increases dramatically, so we need a solution to ensure our guests have a speedier, more reliable and uninterrupted online experience,” he added.

Meanwhile, Akamai’s Asia-Pacific managing director Stuart Spiteri said AirAsia’s commitment to Akamai underscored its goal to deliver a best-of-class online experience for its global customers.
