AirAsia imposes new 'KLIA2 fee'

AirAsia passengers flying to and from Kuala Lumpur may be surprised by a new "KLIA2 fee".

The airline started charging its passengers a RM3 (S$1.20) fee with each ticket booked since last Friday, reported Malaysia's The Star.

Malaysia Airports Holdings was quick to distance itself from the move, issuing a statement to deny that it had anything to do with it.

"There is no such charge as the 'KLIA2 fee' by the airport," the statement said.

"The airport charges are standard and applicable to all airlines at our airports," it said in response to queries from the public over the fee.

"We have highlighted to AirAsia to explain this additional RM3 fee to the public."
