KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 14 — Waze, the free, real-time traffic and navigation app powered by the community of drivers, has launched a voice prompt featuring AirAsia Bhd’s Co-founder/Group Chief Executive Officer, Tan Sri Tony Fernandes.
Fernandes would guide drivers as air traffic control as they navigated Malaysian roads using his feature voice on Waze.
“A lot of people ask me what it’s like being an AirAsia pilot. Now you can experience what it’s like to fly high in the sky interacting with me as your air traffic control.
“And like real air traffic control, I can’t make any promises about the congestion but I can promise that with Waze, we will get you there the quickest and least boring way possible,” Fernandes said in a statement here today.
Waze Malaysia Sales Manager, Edward Ling, said it is thrilled to bring Fernandes’ voice to Waze, guiding Wazers along a route from tower control.
“Voice prompts are one of our most popular features and a great way to bring a brand to life within the context of a drive.
“Fernandes’ voice navigations will make him your co-pilot on any route, making you feel like you’re flying while you are driving,” Ling said. — Bernama
