AirAsia launches #FairAirportTax campaign in response to Malaysia Airports dispute

    AirAsia, via its official Twitter and Facebook accounts, announced (29-Jul-2019) the launch of a social media campaign, #FairAirportTax, in response to an ongoing legal dispute with Malaysia Airports involving unpaid passenger service charges and late payment fees. The carrier is requesting passengers provide comments and opinions using the hashtag and also provided a direct link for complaints to be sent to the Malaysian Aviation Commission. AirAsia‘s website states: “We believe that increased airport taxes stifle tourism, hamper economic growth and put other destinations at a considerable advantage over Malaysia“.
