KUALA LUMPUR - Malaysia has received interest from some local and foreign firms to buy national carrier Malaysia Airlines (MAS), Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad said on Wednesday (March 20).
Malaysia was still studying options for the financially troubled flagship carrier, he told reporters.
"There are certain parties who are interested to buy (the airline), so we don't reject (the possibility of selling)," he said, without disclosing the names of the firms.
The government will consider whether to change the airline's management, downsize or expand it, Tun Mahathir said.
"Although we hired foreign management, MAS still faced losses. Therefore, one of the options is to sell," he said.
