PUTRAJAYA: Malaysia Airlines is seeking an injunction to stop the airasia Super App from offering the national carrier’s flight tickets for sale, says Anthony Loke.
The Transport Minister revealed this after discrepancies in airline ticket classification and prices for flights from Kuala Lumpur to Tawau became an issue recently.
“I was informed that Malaysia Airlines has never authorised (the airasia Super App) to sell their tickets on their behalf.
“That is why we asked to check multiple sources or the Malaysia Airlines (official) app. This is a dispute between the two companies,” he said at a press conference on Monday (April 17).
He said that the request for an injunction had been filed with the courts and the case will be heard in the coming months.
He added that the airasia Super App was managed by a separate entity, AirAsia Digital.
