Airasia X should be allowed to fill MAS frequencies: former PM

Malaysia's former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad stated AirAsia X should be allowed to fill frequencies on routes Malaysia Airlines doesn't (Bernama, 03-Mar-2011).

Former Malaysian Prime Minister: "In many cases, though the demand is there, MAS is not being able to provide more frequencies. So, when they cannot provide more frequencies, I think it's fair to allow AirAsia X to pick up the frequencies. There will be a competition of course but it is up to AirAsia X and MAS to find ways of making a success of the routes." Dr Mahathir Mohamad. Source: Bernama, 03-Mr-2011.
