At long last AirAsia X Bhd will finally be listed in Bursa Kuala Lumpur very soon. On 10-6-2013 AirAsia X Bhd has made an official announcement of its Initial Public Offering (IPO) of up to 790,123,500 ordinary shares of RM0.15 in the main Board of Bursa Kuala Lumpur (BSKL).  The retail price of the IPO is RM1.45, which is almost 10 times above its par value. Based on its retail price it would appear that AirAsia X Bhd is a rock solid company with big “dreams” otherwise its IPO price would not have been fixed at RM1.45! (more…)

Tan Sri Md Nor Md Yusof & Tan Sri Tony Fernandes were smiling away!

Tony Fernandes’ Comment:

Tony Fernandes

MP Wee,

Your comments are disgraceful for a Member of Parliament.

AirAsia X has been open about the RAS issue. All our accounts have been audited by the Auditor-General’s Office. If there remains dissatisfaction, we are more than happy to have the Public Accounts Committee go through the accounts again.

Time and time again, you have repeated your baseless allegations. Yet, each time we suggest a face-to-face meeting, you have refused to accept our offer.

The last straw is dragging my late mother into this issue. There is no need to get personal. I am sure you would not want anyone to denigrate your family members as well.

Once again, I extend you an invitation to AirAsia X to meet with our management team so that we can answer any queries that you have. Azran, Kamarudin and I are at your disposal. We hope that together we can lay the issue to rest.

“Tan Sri Tony Fernandes has denied that AirAsia benefited from the RM249 mil in Government subsidies paid to Fly Asian Xpress (FAX) for rural air service operations four years ago. Fernandes said that although the shareholders of FAX were similar to AirAsia, they ended up losing almost RM5 mil of shareholder capital owing to the wind-up costs of FAX.” Read HERE for full report. Was the report the truth of the situation or another spin by Tan Sri Tony Fernandes?  (more…)

One not telling the truth and the other condoning it!

Updated: 25-10-2011 Please read the article quoted from Business Time report dated 21-7-2006AirAsia not the ‘golden child’. You will see from this report how AirAsia got all the helps (i.e. AirAsia was given 91 trunk routes and etc) from the Badawi’s Administration under the so-called “domestic air rationalisation exercise” and AirAsia grew at the expense of MAS.

Below was what Tan Sri Tony Fernandes had been reported to have said as reported by the Star on 26-4-2007 when the then Minister of Transport, Datuk Chan Kong Choy, announced that FAX/AirAsia X Sdn Bhd had to return the Rural Air Services (RAS) in Sabah and Sarawak to MAS.

“Fernandes said FAX would be launching AirAsia Long Haul operations soon, and that it would be too distracting to operate turbo-propeller aircraft as well.” (more…)
