Gov't pledges action against AirAsia over 'exorbitant fare'

PARLIAMENT | Deputy Transport Minister Ab Aziz Kaprawi told the Dewan Rakyat today that the government will act against low-cost airline AirAsia, which allegedly imposed higher fares during peak hours.

Bung Moktar Radin (Umno-Kinabatangan) had complained that the budget carrier had charged approximately RM2,000 for a one-way flight ticket from Sandakan to Kuala Lumpur.

"I have had discussions with the Malaysian Aviation Commission (Mavcom) to take appropriate action so as to prevent AirAsia from profiteering and taking advantage of peak hours (to impose a higher fare), as it would impact a segment of the community," said Ab Aziz.
