AirAsia Bhd will have to pay at least RM40.6 million to Malaysia Airports (Sepang) Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB), over unpaid passenger service charges (PSC) from July to December last year.
This follows the High Court dismissing the carrier's strike-out application and allowing summary judgments by MAHB be entered on AirAsia in the three suits against the company.
"The court rules that under Section 46 of the Malaysian Aviation Commission Act 2015 that the power to set charges lies with the Malaysian Aviation Commission (Mavcom) while Malaysia Airports (MAHB) is the body issued the licence to operate the airport. I am allowing Order 14 on all three cases," Justice Azimah Omar said in her oral judgment.

Penang-based D'Nonce Technology Bhd said its group chief executive officer Lim Teck Seng has been removed.
In a filing with Bursa Malaysia, the firm said the removal followed a ruling by the Kuala Lumpur High Court on July 11, 2019 that Lim's re-election as a director at the annual general meeting (AGM) on June 17, 2019 was invalid.
The ruling arose from a suit filed by Singapore investment company Blackstream Investments Pte Ltd, which has a 24.14% stake held via RHB Nominees (Asing) Sdn Bhd in D'Nonce.
