AirAsia will not use aerobridges at new low-cost terminal

AirAsia boss Tan Sri Tony Fernandes said the airline will not use aerobridges at KLIA2 even though airport operator Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) will build them for the new low-cost air terminal.

“We will not use them. For 10 years we have run the airline and build it from nothing. We have carried 130 million people and our biggest hub is in Kuala Lumpur where we have not used aerobridges.

“We are confused why they want to spend so much when the client does not want them. What kind of control is there when there is a global economic outlook issue,” Fernandes told StarBiz yesterday.

He said that even Singapore Budget Terminal did not have aerobridges and the Singapore authorities had no intention of building them.
