Just in case you haven’t heard, Malaysia Airlines decided to end its in-flight catering partnership with Brahim’s Holdings Bhd a little while back.

Well, now it looks like someone else might be looking to partner with Malaysia Airlines to provide in-flight meals, and it’s the most unexpected person!

According to New Straits Times, Capital A Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Tan Sri Tony Fernandes shared AirAsia’s subsidiary airline caterer, Santan, is open to partnering with Malaysia Aviation Group (MAG) to provide in-flight meals.

He added that they wouldn’t mind a joint venture with MAG to purchase 70% stake they don’t own in Brahim’s Food Services Sdn Bhd (BFS).

“It’s a good idea to (do a) joint venture to purchase the 70% stake but no one has called us for that. I would consider a joint venture with MAG. Why not? If they want to. If AirAsia and Malaysia Airlines work together, we could take so much business together. That kitchen can go to Thailand, it can go everywhere,” he said.

He further explained that it would depend on the price of the stake as RM129 million, in his opinion, is too high.

Prior to AirAsia ending their partnership with BFS, Capital A had already shared their interest in working with Malaysia Airlines through Santan.

“We have made it known to Malaysia Airlines that we could provide them food long time ago,” he added.
