IPOH: Low budget airline AirAsia must project the countrys culture so that foreigners can recognise it easily as a Malaysian concern, Malaysian Youth Council president Shamsul Anuar Nasarah said.
We are happy that AirAsia is able to provide cheap air tickets to travellers but its management must ensure that the airline projects the countrys identity and culture, he told reporters after the councils supreme committee meeting here yesterday.
Shamsul said the council would be sending an official letter to voice its opinion following numerous complaints on the matter.
For example, he said, the uniform of air stewardess did not project a Malaysian image.
The current uniform is not appropriate with our culture.
We want an image that portrays a Malaysian identity and culture, he said, adding that he hoped AirAsias management would consider the councils views.
