AirAsia has said that it has to pass on the charge of RM3.00 KLIA2 Airport Fees to passengers because of MAHB’s charges for aerobridge, check-in system and others. It was crystal clear that AirAsia was trying hard to pass the blame to MAHB for AirAsia’s own imposition of the KLIA2 Airport Fees of RM3.00. It would appear that the nation has been burdened with endless problematic AirAsia. Please read below the view of Malindo Air on the AirAsia’s KLIA2 Airport Fees of RM3.00.
Malindo Air chief executive officer Mr Chandran Ramamurthy told The Rakyat Post that his airline’s prices were all-inclusive and confirmed that the RM3 free, as MAHB had said, was set by AirAsia. “We don’t want to burden our passengers with our operations cost.

Everyone thought that AirAsia is a very powerful airline when it announced that it will stay put in LCCT despite the completion of KLIA2. Now Everyone Can Laugh Out Loud at the 180 degree u-turn when AirAsia starts to operate at KLIA2 today.
