AirAsia files judicial review against Mavcom


AirAsia Group Bhd said its wholly-owned unit AirAsia Bhd and affiliate, AirAsia X Bhd, may have been named as respondents in a judicial review application filed against the Malaysian Aviation Commission (Mavcom) at the Kuala Lumpur High Court on May 14, 2019.

The application is stated for inter alia an Order of Mandamus to compel the Commission to commence mediation to resolve the disputes between the applicants and Malaysia Airports (Sepang) Sdn Bhd (MA Sepang).

MA Sepang has yet to be presented with any documentation in regard to the Judicial Review Application and no further comment can be given by the company at this juncture.

The judicial review application is not expected to have any material impact on the monetary and operational position of the company. — TMR
