No need for Mavcom , says Tony Fernandes

The Malaysian Aviation Commission (MAVCOM) has denied allegations levelled by AirAsia Group chief executive Tony Fernandes that it had tried to block AirAsia (AK, Kuala Lumpur Int'l) from adding extra flights prior to the May 9 general elections, Channel News Asia has reported.

The regulator said it had approved 166 additional flights for various Malaysian-based airlines by April 24, including AirAsia.

"We would like to emphasise that the video released by Tony on May 13 is fully supported by evidence and facts including direct communication between AirAsia Malaysia CEO Riad Asmat and Abdullah (Mavcom's executive chairman Gen (Rtd) Tan Sri Abdullah Ahmad)". It refuted Fernandes' claim that it had summoned AirAsia over the matter.

It had never issued any directive to AirAsia or any other airline to reduce or cancel any flights where regulatory requirements are met.

Najib has faced not only a major election defeat but he is under virtual house arrest as some of the worlds biggest and worst kept secrets come to light, corruptions scandals that run in to the billions and AirAsia CEO Tony Fernandes has put the Company directly in the middle of them all.
