Calls for Government not to hamper AirAsia

29-Mar-2011 10:57 AM

Malaysian backbencher Datuk Abdul Rahman Dahalan called on the Government not to hamper the service offered by AirAsia in ordering the carrier to relocate its operations from Terminal 2 to the newly upgraded Terminal 1 of Kota Kinabalu International Airport (Bernama, 28-Mar-2011). Mr Rahman said: "What's the use of moving AirAsia to Terminal 1 of KKIA, only for higher surcharge to be imposed on the passengers? It is feared that the (ticket) fares will go up and cause the company to suffer a great loss. We do not have problems with Malaysia Airlines, we do not question the assistance given by the government to MAS, but we don't want it to be perceived that AirAsia's entrepreneurship is being curbed."
