AirAsia must project our identity, says group

IPOH: Low budget airline AirAsia must project the country’s 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 country’s identity and culture,” he told reporters after the council’s 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 AirAsia’s management would consider the council’s views.
