MAHB unit receives AirAsia, AirAsia X writ of summons

PETALING JAYA: Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd’s (MAHB) wholly owned subsidiary Malaysia Airports (Sepang) Sdn Bhd (MASSB) has been served with a writ of summons by AirAsia Bhd and AirAsia X Bhd.

The writ was in respect to alleged losses and damages of RM479.78 million.

“On May 14, AirAsia had initially filed a judicial review leave application seeking for, amongst others, an Order of Mandamus to compel the Malaysian Aviation Commission to decide this dispute.

“AirAsia’s judicial review leave application was subsequently dismissed by the Kuala Lumpur High Court on June 25,” MAHB said in a stock exchange filing today.

In a statement to the exchange last week, AirAsia said the claims were made for the loss and damage caused by negligence on the part of MASSB, its servants and/or agents in the management, operation, maintenance and/or provision of airport services and facilities at klia2.
