KUALA LUMPUR: AirAsia
Bhd is seeking RM409mil for alleged loss and damages incurred operating from klia2 as well as from the low-cost carrier terminal.
AirAsia said on Friday it had served a letter of demand on Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd
and Malaysia Airports (Sepang) Sdn Bhd for the alleged loss and damages.
In its letter of demand, it claimed “MAHB has failed and/or breached its contractual duties and duty of care which has caused AirAsia to suffer and continue to suffer losses as a result of MAHB’s breach”.
AirAsia also claimed the MAHB's breaches damaged AirAsia's brand and reputation as the public perception is that the failings of the facilities are within the control of AirAsia being the single largest operator of klia2.
Meanwhile, MAHB announced to Bursa Malaysia that it was served with a letter of demand amounting to RM409mil from Air Asia "in regards to purported loss and damages incurred in its operation in klia2 and LCCT".
MAHB said the company and its solicitor were looking into the matter and would make further announcement in due course.
