KUALA LUMPUR: AirAsia Group Bhd has stopped charging the RM3 fee for all flights departing from  klia2, effective yesterday.

“Following our announcement last week, we have removed the klia2 fee. We have said from the very beginning that klia2 is not fit for low-cost carrier operations, and we will be going directly to Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd for all the extra costs they’re costing us,” said AirAsia Malaysia chief executive officer Riad Asmat in a statement yesterday.
