AirAsia Malaysia CEO Riad Asmat was quoted by the daily as saying,

“We have said from the very beginning that klia2 is not fit for low-cost carrier operations. We will be going directly to Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) for all the extra costs.”

According to AirAsia’s website, the klia2 fee covers “mandatory klia2 facilities imposed by the airport operator to the airline such as aerobridges and the SITA check-in/boarding systems.” Prior to this fee cancellation, RM3 was charged per guest when travellers booked their flights. This fee was also non-refundable.
