PETALING JAYA: The Malaysia Airlines Retirees Association (MASRA) is offering to provide advice and its expertise in order to turnaround and save the ailing airline.
Speaking at a press conference here on Tuesday, its patron Tan Sri Aziz Abdul Rahman said they were confident that they would be able to help rescue Malaysia Airlines Bhd (MAS).
"We must have a national carrier. Do not shut it down.
"I know we can save the airlines - we have world-class pilots, engineers and cabin crew.
"Among us, we have the expertise. We can bring the airlines back to its glory days," said Aziz, who was among the key individuals involved in the setting up of the airlines in the 1970s.
He also criticised the airlines decision to bring in expatriates to helm the company during recent years, saying Malaysia Airlines had been built from scratch and brought to world-class standards by Malaysian experts.
