Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad (“the Company”) had noted from various articles published on 14 May 2019 and 15 May 2019 that Malaysia Airports (Sepang) Sdn Bhd (“MA Sepang”), a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, may have been named as a respondent in a judicial review application (“the Judicial Review Application”) filed by AirAsia Berhad and AirAsia X Berhad (“the Applicants”) against the Malaysian Aviation Commission (“the Commission”) at the Kuala Lumpur High Court on 14 May 2019.
