Celebrating the Year of the Dragon and the launch of their 100th Airbus, AirAsia has unveiled its ‘Awesome 100th Air Bus’ complete with a dragon design on the side of the plane. The dragon was designed by award-winning brand consultancy The Partners.

Created by a team across the Singapore and London offices at The Partners, 20 painters worked non-stop for 12 days to paint the Airbus A320 in the colours of the dragon and approximately 600 litres of paint were required to complete the job.
