Rafidah: Aviation industry will soar under Dr M

Rafidah Aziz expects AirAsia to fly in clearer skies from now on.

KUALA LUMPUR: AirAsia X chairman Rafidah Aziz is optimistic that the newly-elected government led by Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad will bring positive impact to the aviation industry.

“With the new government with Tun at the helm, we can expect the operating environment to be more business-friendly and constraints faced by the aviation industry can be eased and removed,” she said in a post on her Facebook page, Rafidah Aziz Malaysian Citizen, today.

Rafidah, who was former international trade and industry minister, said with the improved environment, she hoped the budget airline would be able to provide a better service to the people.

“We can then serve all of you better. Let us look ahead, with positivity, and let us put the upsets triggered by the past government way behind us.

“AirAsia will, God willing, be flying in clearer skies from now on,” she added.
