Fernandes Denies AirAsia X Facing Trouble Paying Salaries
KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 20 – AirAsia group chief executive officer, Tan Sri Tony Fernandes, has brushed off reports that AirAsia X is facing problems paying salaries and allowances, saying that the reports are rubbish, speculative and wrong. “The reports are rubbish, speculative and wrong. You try not paying the bank your loan and see what happens on the aircraft.
“It was irresponsible and they should have gotten a comment from us,” he told a press conference after announcing the AirAsia Asean Pass. The pass enables travellers to utilise pre-purchased credits to book flights at a fixed rate across selected routes throughout Asean. On the aircraft loan payment problems, AirAsia co-founder, Datuk Kamaruddin Meranun, said the loan was on a revenue-generating asset, making it a top priority for the company. “It’s the last thing that we will not pay for because without the aircraft, we will not get the revenue,” he added.
