SINGAPORE (Sept 23): AirAsia Group has long had a tumultuous relationship with its landlord, Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB). Both companies have clashed in the past over issues related to klia2, ranging from its location, cost and facilities to delays in its completion.

But the feud has escalated of late because of differences over the passenger service charge (PSC), triggering a lawsuit by the airport operator after the low-cost carrier (LCC) refused to collect the RM73 (RM24) in PSC gazetted by the Malaysian Aviation Commission (Mavcom) and stuck to the previous rate of RM50.

Not helping matters is AirAsia co-founder and group CEO Tony Fernandes’ penchant for speaking his mind, often taking to social media to express his dissatisfaction and frustrations with MAHB.
