While many airlines are worried about earnings and expenses, budget carrier Air Asia is looking to expand. It wants to acquire a stake in Indonesian airline Batavia Air for $80m.

The BBC's Karishma Vaswani caught up with the head of Air Asia, Tony Fernandes, while he was in Jakarta and asked him about the bid.
