Its Chief Executive Officer, Aireen Omar, said an SLA woudl be in place between the frills-free airline and MAHB, but declined to divulge details of the proposed agreement.
"It’s something that is in progress. Generally, there would be a SLA. But I cannot comment much as this involves MAHB and other related parties as well," she told reporters after launching the enhanced version of AirAsia Megastore here today.
AirAsia is poised to become the largest tenant at klia2, and a SLA is expected to formally define the level of service both MAHB and AirAsia would provide at klia2, scheduled to be operational in April 2013.
There is no SLA in place currently for AirAsia’s use of the existing LCCT, except for certain written understanding.
Aireen said AirAsia was seeking to move into the new airport as soon as it was completed and the shift would be done "overnight" and not in phases.
She added that AirAsia Group Chief Executive Officer Tan Sri Tony Fernandes was absolutely right when he said the move to klia2 would make the budget carrier even more stronger in Malaysia and regionally.
On Monday, Fernandes tweeted that AirAsia was now positive of its impending shift to the new airport, adding that the new airport "looks cool".
