FAX operated the Rural Air Services for a short while
In 2006 Tan Sri Tony Fernandes/AirAsia Bhd lobbied so hard for RAS during the Badawi’s Administration. RAS was taken away from MAS and granted to AirAsia Bhd.
Thereafter, AirAsia Bhd subcontracted RAS to Fly Asian Express Sdn Bhd aka known as FAX and now known as AirAsia X Sdn Bhd. On 2-10-2011 Tan Sri Tony Fernandes also claimed in his interview with AgendaDaily online that he got very little helps from the Badawi’s Administration.
Yours truly leaves it to you to judge whether Tan Sri Tony Fernandes was telling the truth.
