July 19, 2019 / FlightGlobal

AirAsia and AirAsia X are planning to appeal an order from the Malaysian High Court to pay nearly MYR42 million ($10.2 million) in passenger service charges (PSC) and late payment charges to Malaysia Airports (MAHB).The 18 July ruling states that both carriers will have to pay MYR40.7 million in unpaid PSCs, and MYR792,400 in late payment charges after applications by the carriers to strike out or seek a stay of proceedings in lawsuits filed by the airport operator were dismissed.A declaration was also made for the airlines to pay MAHB the PSC rates that are gazetted in law.Following the ruling, the AirAsia carriers stated that they plan to appeal against the decision."We will be taking the necessary actions to preserve our interests, including appealing against the said decision and applying for a stay of execution," they say in stock exchange disclosures.
