Malindo stakeholder’s appointment as Indonesian ambassador worrying, says institute

The Malaysian Institute of Corporate Governance says Rusdi Kirana’s appointment could bring Malindo Air to a favourable position in its airport operations.
rusdi-kirana-malindo-airPETALING JAYA: The Malaysian Institute of Corporate Governance has expressed concern over the appointment of Rusdi Kirana, a key stakeholder in Lion Air and Malindo Air, as the new Indonesian ambassador to Malaysia.
According to the New Straits Times (NST), its president Megat Najmuddin Megat Khas questioned Wisma Putra for agreeing to the appointment without considering “diplomatic risks” as Malindo, a subsidiary of Indonesian outfit Lion Air, was facing problems in business dealings in Malaysia.
“The diplomatic relationship between Malaysia and Indonesia is of paramount importance and it cannot be disturbed by any business or personal interest,” he was quoted as saying yesterday.
“This is a situation that threatens bilateral ties between the two governments. Diplomatic relations override business interests,” he added.
Megat reportedly claimed that Rusdi’s appointment could bring Malindo Air to a favourable position in which the airline would continue its operations in Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) and Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport in Subang.
“Once again, Malaysia Airlines will be a victim of this situation,” he was quoted as saying.
On Aug 3, Second Finance Minister Johari Abdul Ghani was reported by NST as saying that Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) should consider relocating Malindo to Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (klia2) to help ease congestion at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA).
He said MAHB should also initiate collection of outstanding passenger service charges from airlines, including Malindo.
NST also reported Umno Youth deputy chief Khairul Azwan Harun as saying that immediate action should be taken to move Malindo’s operations to klia2, which would be in the best interest of Malaysia Airlines which operates from KLIA.
“We want an immediate correction to be made to ensure that Malindo Air operations are allowed only at klia2 as Malindo Air is a low-cost carrier,” Khairul was quoted as saying.
“In the best interest of Malaysia Airlines, we want Malindo Air not to operate from KLIA’s main terminal.” - FMT
